Hello. My name is Stanley. I was browsing a table at a church rummage sale recently and discovered a small leather pouch. When I picked it up I discovered it was a pipe pouch to house a pipe and tobacco. It held a pipe, some old tobacco, pipe cleaners, and an old square nail. I asked the person behind the table what they wanted for it and she said, twenty-five cents. I paid her the quarter and went home with my find. I had never smoked in my life with the exception of a cigar with my son-in-law on the birth of his first child and our first grandchild. I discovered I had purchased a beautiful Vauen bent apple in excellent condition. A friend invited me over for "a bowl" and showed me how to light, tamp, and keep my pipe going. He shared his Shenandoah from Georgetown Tobacco. That was my initiation into the world of the pipe. I have been reading and watching lots of videos on Youtube. I am nearly sixty and feel life is too short to miss out on some of these fine pleasures. I look forward to getting to know some of you and value your insights and experiential knowledge. I have since tried Plumcake and Frog Morton. My friend introduced me to these fine English blends. I just ordered some aromatic tobacco on line and look forward to trying that as well.

Welcome to the BoB forums Stanley! I too enjoy good cigars, however, pipe smoking and collecting is much more fulfilling to me. All the cigars I have smoked are gone forever, but my pipes are always on the wall for my enjoyment, whether to smoke, or just admire. In addition, there are lots of accessories and vintage tobacciania items to add to your collection as well.

Welcome to the site! Quick question: what do you like to do while piping? A.) showering, B.) skiing, C.) short-term lawyering, or D.) scratching a rabid wombat?

Greetings and welcome aboard, Stanley. Finding that great deal must mean you were destined to smoke a pipe. Of course, I would have talked them down to $0.15!
