    You can usually find deals at second hand stores and thrift shops, or even at Goodwill Folks clean out an attic and don't care about old razors. Its rare that I've spent over $12 for a razor. Yesterday I bought a Gillette Black Beauty (new in box), Gillette Fat Boy and a Gillette Ball Tech for $3 each and a box full of blades, mostly Wilkinson Sword for $5

    Unfortunately Goodwill has discovered the internet and has an auction site for the better goods gleaned from the huge amount that is donated daily.They've gotten very astute. DEs, SEs and straight razors are rarer than Hen's teeth to find in a Goodwill Store.

    Occasionally they goof up. Several months ago I found a A Crabtree & Evelyn scuttle mug selling at $3USD. It matched the color of the day special and I got it for $1.50USD. Have not seen a decent bargain like that since.

    Thanks Razorfeld Wow you got a nice deal, I guess there's no need to go to Goodwill for razors. But snow will be melting soon I hope and Lawn and Garage sales will start, another good place to get good stuff.

    Not all Goodwill or for that matter DAV, etc. etc. Thrift Store take the time to e-bay the razors, shaving mugs, brushes. Some times you can find them in their trash cans.
