Picked up some Three Friars and Redwood.
Yep looks like some good C&D stuff. Good hall sarge.
I've ordered from him several times and there are definitely good deals to be had.
And then there are "deals" like a 2002 Tub of ERR for $135?!?! lol
Yeah, good eye. I just emailed him. Thanks!
No, I'm not picking THAT one up!! LOL
Yeah no kidding. And his Sobranie prices are always crazy high.
That said, I've gotten some great stuff from him. Got two tins of 2006 FVF for $15 a tin, which is what it costs new at my B&M, and I got a first year production tin of Pelican for like $16 recently. He always ships fast too. Also, if you like Christmas Cheer, he sometimes has vintage tins of it for reasonable prices too. Overall, I'm a fan of Pipestud. My only complaint is I wish he would charge less for the old Dunhill stuff. I've been wanting to try Murray's Dunhill blends for awhile, but I've never found any for a reasonable price, especially Elizabethan. Oh well, everyone knows that the value of an item is equal to whatever someone is willing to pay for it.
I've ordered from pipe stud a couple of times great guy to deal with and yeah super fast shipping.
Dude also sells on Ebay.
(I'm kind of slow sometimes)
If he sells it for that price, I'm gonna scream! That's over twice what mine sold for.
A lot of his stuff is on consignment...the owner sets the price.
And yes, good deals *can* be had with the ol' Stud.
Lots of folks would pay $16.88 for a 50 gram tin of the original Edgeworth RR, if you could buy such a beast. That is what it breaks down to.
Perhaps. The last tub of ERR I bought cost $27. That was about two months ago, and I bought it in a B&M in California.
Nice find Spill.
If the 50g tin of BS 759 is $375 then why is the 50g pouch only $90? He-he, only $90.
Follow-up question: Would any of you buy that tin if you could afford it? I probably would. And I would smoke it, too. Maybe send some samples out. One thing I wouldn't do is hold onto it for years, idolize it, post pictures of it, try to get others to idolize it, then sell it for $425. But I guess by paying $375 for a handful of tobacco, it would indicate that I too have fallen prey to the hype-machine.
That website is straight up out of the early 90s. I'm surprised it doesn't have an animated twinkling star background.
All I can think about when seeing such stratospheric prices for BS is that I wish I would have bought more of the stuff back when I started smoking!!
You never know, that's the thing. If Full Virginia Flake were to be discontinued next week for whatever reason, it wouldn't surprise me at all if cellared tins started fetching upwards of $50 by month's end... probably hit $100 by next year. Ya just never know.
