One of our proudest elements in this shop has always been our offerings of hair, beard and shave products that are rare, unique, heritage, small batch, handmade and/or local. If you can hardly find it anywhere else and it’s a great product, that’s the stuff that we want to offer. Products that fill needs, solve problems, perform perfectly, and look beautiful all at the same time.
But we have a sneaky reason that the products we stock are so popular. It is because for the most part, WE are not the ones deciding what comes to our shelves. Our clients are.
Let us tell you how you can be part of what comes next.
Since we opened, we have made a point to ask our super regular clients for their opinions on potential new additions. These are the fellows who have tried damn near all the things in our shop and know what they like, and what they don’t. And that’s because these are the folks that have a solid basis for comparison when they try all the new goodies. So when we get samples of a new product line, we start using those samples all over these guys in particular.
If they are excited about it, and especially if those dudes start wondering when they can finally get a hold of that product, that’s what will end up on our shelves. Our guidelines for potential products are built around what gets our clients excited. Because groping Beardsmith only works for so many of them.
But now we are doing this in a more regimented manner. Once per season we are going to have a invite-only Sample Party in-shop where our very bestest clients get their hands on all the samples. We live stream the testing and findings, and with the help of the dudes and the viewers, we vote on the next line(s) to hit the shelves.
Attendees may also be the recipients of goodies and goos we just need to get the hell out of here already, and we definitely have some of those on hand for this round of testing.
So remember, even if you don’t get an invite on a particular round, you can vote in the livestream on our Facebook and Instagram, and help us pick the next best thing to hit the shelves. Tune in on Saturday, April 1st at 3:00 pm!
