Hi guys,
I'm reaching out to the community for suggestions on what THBS should begin stocking in 2016.
New brands, new hardware, perhaps not even something shave related? (Thinking pens, inks, pipes, axes, etc?)

What'll it be ladies and gents? Is there a particular good you always end up having to buy elsewhere other than your favorite shave vendor?
Unfortunately I cannot get into the perishable goods market, so items like milk, eggs, and bacon are off the list.  Character

Hey Gareth, I think you have done a great job curating a line card that has a broad spectrum of artisan products. Having said that, here are some things that came to mind:

1. Haslinger soaps
2. Myrsol AS
3. Floid AS
4. Dominica AS [only as this is hard to find at US retailers- I know you already carry Royall so depending on sell through may or may not make sense]
5. EJ razors [may be a nice runrate product based on popularity, particularly with those starting out]
6. Vie Long brushes [Epsilon would be great but believe this is an exclusive house brand for Juan at Gifts & Care; you never know though with your US storefront he may extend the disty model]

Just a few as mentioned that popped into my mind.

Keep up the great work!

Reviving this thread, I wanna keep it open and current!

We just added Mason Boutique, The Holy Black is on it's way and we are in discussions with BlueBell Soaps. I'm mostly looking for brands that aren't well represented elsewhere, and would make life easier on customers to order them all in one spot.

Any new suggestions folks?

Maybe get some boar brushes. Something unique like Zenith brushes that's been getting some buzz.

I have an idea I'll float by you probably soon.

More than likely no other NA vendor will be able to get these. At least that is where it seems like things are heading.

Why?

$95 for 240 eBay Vendor from TX

$128.50 for 240 Bullgoose with 10% sale which they have all the time comes to $115.60

$6.50 for 10 Bullgoose

$7.00 for 10 Maggards

$9.95 for 10 (sold as 90) OneBlade

$0.95 each sold individually Try a Blade

Obviously Maggards, OneBlade, and Try a blade must be pulling them from the 240 master packs. Why can't there be another US, nm NA, vendor?

I second the nomination of Dominica products that kwsher suggested last november. That stuff seems to be getting as rare as hen's teeth these days.
