    I'm going to cut right to the chase. I don't want to advertise, but I just ordered some Hobbits Weed from http://www.tewksburycompany.com/

    Ok, so why should you care?

    Because the guy on the phone was probably the nicest human being I have talked to in well over six months. No joke. He was genuinely excited to talk about Hobbits weed, and how it is selling. (Apparently really well, he sends out to Europe, Austrelia, NA, and SA.) Furthermore, he called me half-an-hour later, FROM THE POST OFFICE, to talk with me about my address and get everything sorted out. Mind you, this was after the store closed.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but after dealing with my local B&M this guy blew my mind. Clearly this isn't only his job and business, this is his PASSION. I would highly reccomend Tewksbury and Company. He actually wanted me to call back and let him know what I thought of the tobacco once it arrived.

    I'm pinching myself and looking over my shoulder. I should wake up any minute now. Those kinds of people just don't exist. Well, outside of these forums that is. :th1:

    Some tapered pipe cleaners and an oz of cherry twist from P&C. Two things on my list to try.

    I was going to go to my B&M but this was more cost effective.

    Not necessarily a purchase, but an acquisition from a great trade with DocB

    Well,

    I recently and suddenly realized I hadn't purchased a pipe in over two years, so I panic'd and went a little hog-wild on Mark Tinsky's site... These three pipes arrived last week. Two prior year Christmas Pipes from 2010 and 2011 and 1 ASP 2012 pipe.

    Alan

    I bought the Custombilt Pipe story "As original as a thumbprint" The funny thing is I thought it was an actual book. It came in the mail today and when I opened the box it was a photo copy of the book in a spiral plastic binding! LOL... Still great to have though.

    New High Polish Brass Armor Case Zippo arrived today, also found a NOS Canadian Brass Zippo pipe insert on the bay to complete the look, found it to fit loose in the case as it lacks the "friction bars" that are stamped in the newer inserts, so I will have to come up with some ingenious idea to remedy this, for now 2 layers of tape are doing the job...
