Bought a dozen mason jars. My spending is out of control........
I love this thread. The feeling reminds me of being a boy and looking through the F A O Shwarz toy catalogue at Christmas time. Happy Thanksgiving all, and congrats on picking out all this neat stuff!
Oh man, every time we were in NYC I would spend hours in FAO...it was the mecca
then they built that Toys R Us with the ferris wheel in it and I grew up and the store didn't seem that vast anymore. I hate growing up.
we are here to support you .... and to egg you on ....
we are the enablers that you have grown to trust
now just watch the swinging pendulum as repeat after us
- still, I have to admit that this board takes enabling to the next
I know I'm in good hands!
Well, I took advantage of the 10% off at http://www.smokingpipes.com/index.cfm and ordered:
1lb Kendal Kentucky
1lb Bob's Square Cut
1lb Bayou Morning
Please, Uncle Sam, give me just another year to get my cellar fully stocked.
Yeah, I was forced to take part in the Black Friday hype as well. Man, my arm hurts.
Pad the cellar and beat the taxman:
24oz Peter Stokkebye Luxury Navy Flake
New to me:
4oz SG Skiff Mixture
4oz SG Navy Flake
4oz Newminster Superior Navy Flake
100g Reiner Long Golden Flake
Scored via trade:
1 tin of PSF Kickin' Chicken
Very generous samples of:
Condor Ready Rubbed
Dan Tobacco Limerick
At this rate, it's gonna be a long time before I open anything new with all these samples I've received lately!
PAD stuck me like bolt of lightning tonight, I had been looking at Baki meers for a while but they are a bit out of my price range not to mention FL residence have to pay sales tax on top of that, just happened to go on ebay and typed "Baki meerschaum" in the search window and there it was a estate Baki in the exact style I wanted at a buy it now price with free shipping (from France) so I am the proud owner of a cherrywood silver mount Cumberland Baki, I didn't even see it coming ...
Well that takes care of that ;-)
Well, this arrived yesterday. A hand carve from Cooper Pipes. There are so many good carvers out there that I'm afraid I've been like a pig at the trough lately. I haven't posted all the photos of everything I've purchased lately due to PAD Shame!
The grain on that pipe is suspiciously awesome; almost too good.
You should probably send it to me to "authenticate" it.
note: this will require extensive smoking
I'll take it under advisement... I do hate breaking in new pipes...
No shame in PAD only shame is when you dont show pics
Just get Rhodesian pipe from our seller Robert leslie. Robert, thank you for this beautiful pipe! Feedback 200%!
Alrighty, then. Confession is good for the soul?
Here's two more recent purchases. Two Ferndowns arrived this morning from Pipes2Smoke...
So I ended up nurturing my PAD and limited budget with a new estate pipe off eBay. Only one picture of it, so it's a slight gamble, but I've been looking for something this shape for a while now, so I'm happy even if it will require some TLC before I can enjoy it, and it's my first Savinelli too.
Savinelli Punto Oro 904 (at least I think it's a 904, judging from the shape)
Bought this Cellini on ebay. It arrived today.
Here's a pic of this week's haul.
Apart from the trade stuff I listed yesterday, there's a 1.5 lb box of PS LBF (I'm really digging this one) and then 4oz of the PSF Nutty Professor blend from 4noggins. Finally, a tin of Frog Morton Cellar. The cellar cupboard is getting full.
