    Default I bought some cool stuff.

    I went to an auction saturday and bought a cute witch hazel bottle and a water bottle from an old barber shop that had went out of business. I also bought his barber chair! The chair is going to be the toughest restore ever attempted but it is just so cool. I will post pics as soon as I can. Also got a Barbicide jug and an Ever Ready 300E brush.

    Here is the chair. Its going to take some work, but I kind of like it. And it went way cheaper than I thought.

    Everything looks awesome, especially the chair. It has a great "patina" to it and looks to be in fine shape.

    That chair does not look like it needs much for restoration. Some elbow grease, steel wool and a little polish will go a long way. I have always wanted a barbers chair. All in good time I suppose.
