So after being given alco bowls i was immeadiately onto ebay for a stem, and i found straight away that ended tonight. So i kept my eye on it and watched it slowly rise in price. This evening the bidding war started and for fifteenminutes i was the highest bidder and i got out bid seconds before the auction ended, it was a massive kick in the teeth. But i like organisation and just incase i rang round some tobacconists scattered about in England yesterday afternoon and i have sourced one that does brand new alco pipes. Brilliant yes but part of me was kind of looking foreward to restoring a pipe and bringing it back to new, they are more alcos on the bay but im choosing just not too wait . Order is going in tomorow, pics of the new pipe and seven bowls to follow.
