    As I understand it, Whitehall's were at some point in their manufacturing history, either made in England as Ben Wade rejects or in Italy by Gasparini. I have one of the Italian made Whitehall's and it actually smokes great.

    You made out like a bandit! Great find for that price! I wish there were more sales like that around where I loved!

    Am I the only one here that goes to a yard sale and asks "So how much do you want for your yard?".

    I do the same with garage sales.

    Very nice score. Maybe I should start going to yard sales. It would keep me away from Ebay. :whis:

    you know what they say. going to a yard sale looking for a certain item will send you home with a bunch of other crap you didn't need. but if you go there with nothing in mind you can find nice little gems. Even if not valuable on the open market they could mean a lot to you. And bring new life to someone else's clutter

    I'm no expert, bu 3 pipes for only 5 bucks seems like a heck of a deal. Hey, if you can get good smoke out of em, they're fine.

    At that price you just about stole them.

    I've snagged a couple from an estate sale once. Wish I knew what I was looking at because I turned my nose up to all the kaywoodies he had.....:doh:
