I had gone in there to pick up another tin of DaVinci by Dans Tobacco. I have to special order the tins, they don't stock any at all. They were admiring my Baglan claw pipe I got recently, and I mentioned that they should consider stocking a couple of meerschaums. I figured 1 or 2 isn't much risk and they could see if they will sell. She said "We have some in our catalog!". We got it out, and the brand listed was Royal Meerschaum. What made me laugh was the price, a figural face pipe, for $7.95 ?? I had to explain to her about pressed meerschaum junk and recommended she not order any of those pipes. Then, I told her about some of the known, proven, name brands, like IMP, or Altinok, or Servi. She said she has to check her papers, and that she isn't allowed to just choose any supplier for the store. She admitted that some people have come in asking for meers, and she has had to turn them away. They said I'm the only person they have seen that actually has meerschaums, and I'm the only customer they have that orders tinned tobacco. Its sad that store rules make it hard for her to expand, and just maybe become a meerschaum dealer.
