On Ebay? If so, how are you finding them? I can't seem to find much.
First thing I did when I got serious about starting a cellar. There are no stores within a good drive from here, but managed to find a couple places. Neither of them carry many tins - it's mostly random bulk stuff. Here's how my conversation went at the last B&M I was in...howellhandmade":8dm4nopd said:If you have a B&M, check the shelves for tins in the back; sometimes a tin can sit in a shop for months or years.
This is sage advice.Yak":lxc4jsrr said:In all seriousness -- just get a handle on what you like (keep buying, keep smoking, keep enjoying), buy a bunch of it, and wait a couple years before you start tapping your stash.
Hear, hear! A good portion of my regular purchases nowadays comes from the proceeds / trades of vintage tins. Just today, in fact, sold a few tins of Elizabethan on ebay for about 4x what I originally paid for them and stopped by the BM on the way out to dinner to buy up some 'fresh' GLP tins. Way better return than my stock portfolio, that is for sure.Danish_Pipe_Guy":iryqxbqz said:It will increase in value! If you cellar something you've grown away from you'll still be alble to trade it or sell it down the road for substantially more than your inital investment
