    top to bottom, comoy's everyman, mastro de paja, and parker. everyman is a little worse for wear but a good smoker, the other two are great smokers in great condition. i'm pretty happy.


    love to see what the rest of you grabbed!

    Hi,

    They look grand - just wish we had events like that in the U.K.

    Enjoy in good health for many a year to come!

    Door charges? NY is crazy! No door chargers here in Columbus.

    Nice haul though. I really like the barrel shape on top.

    They look great for $85. Love the middle one. What is a door charge? Sounds like a trumped up tax for someone sitting some where doing nothing to make some money.

    Hope you enjoy the pipes. Wish we had shows in Florida.

    Y'see, it's great deals like that that make me kick myself for being unable to attend! I think you got a nice little haul there.

    door charge was just 5$ to help cover the fee for renting the ballroom. i think its a small price to pay for the ridiculous deals you could get there.

    ying, you'll be there in march. or else.

    Very nice trio you got there. Should all three be good puffers.
    How much is the "door charge" for the show?
    The St. Louis show is free...a vendor's table costs $45.00

    dub - good seeing you again. Yah - there were some bodacious deals - I called buddies and did some shopping for them. Ended up with 5 pipes total, but also scored a few pounds of assorted tins.

    Here are the pipes I got at the show. I need to get all of my thoughts down in a blog. Suffice to say - it was great. The pipe in the lower right was $5, and really sparked my memories and imagination ! The story might be a bit long for a thread, so I'll try the blog feature when I get time.

    I payed $50 for the pipes on the left, $25 for the pipes on the right.

    Trying something new, I'm posting a link to my gallery here, lets see if it works.
