Shaving Collectibles Extravaganza
On October 12, 2013, the 10th National Shaving Collectibles Meeting held its annual meeting in conjunction with the National Shaving Mug Collectors Association (NSMCA) in West Chester, Ohio. Sixty-five people were in attendance from all across the US and one collector from the United Kingdom. Eighteen states were represented with the greatest number from Ohio. A total of 40 tables were requested and used to display and/or sell a wide variety of shaving collectibles.
During the course of the day, two presentations were given: one by Mike Griffin who spoke on “Theories, Thoughts, and Tips on Collecting, and the other by Tom Willard who spoke on “The Major Classes of Stroppers and Hones.”
There were about 20 door prizes graciously donated by attendees and given away by a drawing of names.
Wonderful and many rare collectibles were on display and for sale: barber bottles, shaving mugs, straight razors, safety razors, blade banks, razor blades, stroppers and hones, and even a beautiful old barber’s chair.
On Friday evening, preceding the meeting, a get-together dinner was held at the nearby Bravo Cucina Italian Restaurant, on Saturday evening, a social was hosted by the NSMCA at the Hampton Inn Hotel, and on Sunday, a brunch was held at the Rosenthal’s that included a viewing of his safety razor and shaving brush collection.
Plans are currently underway for the 11th National Shaving Collectibles Meeting in October of 2014.
Special thanks are extended to Mike Griffin and Carl Mitchell in the planning of this meeting, and to all those who donated shaving collectibles for door prizes.
