Well in my neck of the woods we have hardly had a dry weekend since the so called spring has sprung. We got lucky and had one this past weekend. My daughter, wife and myself enjoyed a nice afternoon at our area's huge weekly outdoor flea market that has an inddor market ,farmers market the whoe deal. I was looking for a few things, Items for my homebar and now Pipe's or pipe smoking items. For the bar I got a cool old 70's bar light that said "bars open" on a lampost with two cartoonish clown looking guys drinking and hanging on the pole, $6 and a nice round metal Blatz standing bar light from the 70's for $8. I found allot of lighters and a few old half and half tins. I then found a series of mini toby tins in a set in plastic for $6 but passed...never heard of the tobacco brand. Then I finally found a cigar box full of old pipes. Every one was super gross. I mean caked with tobacco tar , grime, discolored stem's. All of the bowls had never seen a reamer and were super caked almost unable to put toby in them. There were a few good looking pipes and one was a high end looking pipe maybe a Peterson by the looks but it was too gross to touch. Did anyone back years ago ever clean their pipes or ream them? These things were very used but man, I was surprised how bad of shape they were in.
