Cabrera Humidor

** SOLD TO Matt M for $120 **

Direct Shops - Cabrera Humidor

A Humidor serves two primary purposes: The first is to enhance and maintain the freshness and flavor of your cigars for years to come. And the second is to enhance a room or office as a fine piece of heirloom quality furniture.

Our humidors are designed to store and age cigars with in the optimal humidity of approximately 70% at room temperature. Premium cigars are created in a tropical climate, and upon arrival in Canada they will dry out and break apart if not stored in a proper environment. Our humidors achieve a 70% humidity level through the use of a humidifier and an interior of Spanish Cedar.

The humidifier is a device that is filled up with distilled water which will maintain humidity in the humidor. If a humidor does not have a humidifier, it is just a fancy box! Our humidors contain a hygrometer which measures the humidity in the air, which will let you know when it is time to add more distilled water to the humidifier.

“$100 Body Sugaring GC” by Tianna

** SOLD TO Juanita J for $50 **

Sugar Me Softly Body Sugaring offers hair removal treatments for both Women and Men.

It is the modern version of hair removal which was first practiced in ancient times by Egyptian women. This ancient art form has been perfected using the advanced body sugaring technique. This is the most natural and effective way to remove unwanted hair.

We specialize in Brazilians as well as offering a full range of additional services to meet your hair removal needs.  Proven safe for ALL ages, from the young to young at heart, whether it is aesthetically desired or medically requested, this method is 100% assured.

Our sugar paste that is used is manufactured in a way which ensures superb and consistent quality.  There are no chemical additives, no wax resins as that act as cheat add-ins.  The paste is so natural that it is even edible!  A huge benefit is that the sugar only sticks to hair and dead skin cells; you will leave your treatment with softer, silkier and healthier skin!

You can feel secure in knowing that you will be sugared by a professionally trained and certified technician, who is always committed to providing you with the highest standard of service available. Sugar Me Softly Body Sugaring offers complete privacy in a safe and comfortable environment; our clients are always treated with unmatchable attention, care and respect.
