    With information from a fellow forum member I contacted a great shop the other day looking for some FVF and Firedance Flake.
    I got lucky - they took my number and told me they would call me back after they checked in their storage room and some other local shops in their area. Here's what they came up with;

    5 tins FVF
    2 tins Best Brown Flake
    1 tin Firedance Flake
    1 tin Perfection

    Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then.:) God Bless!!! Ray

    Yes Sir, I sure did. The guy told me that another shop local in his area was going to contact him tomorrow and that he thought he had several tins of SG blends in storage and that he would hook me up there too. God Bless!!! Ray

    There's still some SG blends sitting in B&Ms. I wandered into my "local" shop recently and saw a dozen or so SG tins--no FVF, but BBF, and Balkan were certainly there. I'm not such a big fan of SG though so I left 'em for others. It's time for the SG lovers to put some miles on the car.

    Good for you! I'm jealous! And I'm jealous of everyone that actually has a local tobacconist. :bow:

    If you ordered from smokingpipes.com, expect to get an e-mail stating that the order is being cancelled. Their site was bollocksed up yesterday and there are NO SG BLENDS AVAILABLE!!!! Be forewarned.........

    Thanks for the warning, but I ordered from a little shop that was suggested by a fellow forum member that was local to him. God Bless!!! Ray
