If you're like me and many of my family and friends, 2016 has been a shaky year for you, at best. World events, celebrity deaths, and more have created a backdrop for a seemingly unprecedented amount of personal woes such as money troubles, medical issues, and more. And while 2016 might not be remembered as a banner year for many, I'm always up for kicking back with a pipe and counting my many blessings.
I have a wonderful wife and three incredible children. We have enough money to pay our monthly bills. We have a fantastic church family. And while I was recovering from a severe knee injury throughout 2016, I "redeemed the time" and was able to fulfill a lifelong dream--I started a business! I've said it before, but I'll say it again: The Pipe Nook has been a labor of love, and I'm so happy with how the first year has gone! In the very first year, I've been able to introduce ALL of my "must-have" pipe brands! Being able to introduce Big Ben, Missouri Meerschaum, Mr. Brog, Morgan Pipes, Neerup, Rossi, Savinelli, AND Stanwell, as well as a few Artisan Pipe-Makers, all within the first year has been an incredible achievement, and I'm very grateful for and excited about all the opportunities that 2017 now has to offer! In 2017, I hope to increase the amount of lines, shapes, and quantity of pipes that I have available for these brands. And you never know...there just may be an addition or two along the way!
Also, if you're like me in another way, the last week of the year finds you with a little "Christmas Money" in your pocket. Let me help you spend it with a site-wide 15% Off sale! Enter the coupon code SEEYA2016 at checkout to receive 15% off your entire order through the end of the year! In addition, you can make your money stretch even further by taking advantage of already discounted items such as the Savinelli 2000 Collection pipes (pictured), and the remaining few Savinelli Adria pipes I have left in stock! As we say goodbye to a problematic 2016, let's enjoy the simple comforts of a new pipe or two, and look forward to what I hope will be a better year in 2017 for all of us! A big THANK YOU to all who have supported The Pipe Nook, and I wish each and every one of you all the best that God has to offer in the New Year!

Just a quick note today to let you know that I've added a Gift Card feature to the site! Gift cards can be purchased in increments from $25 to $500 and work just like any other form of payment at checkout. If you're like me, you're always second-guessing gifts that you give to friends and family. Is it really something they wanted? Even if they wanted it, did you pick the right color? And on and on. But if you have a pipe smoker in your life, here's a great option to make gift-giving a piece of cake!
This Holiday Season, surprise a fellow pipe smoker (or convince your friends & family to "surprise" you) with a Gift Card from The Pipe Nook! Gift Cards are delivered to the recipient by email and include instructions on how to redeem them at checkout. Our Gift Cards have no additional processing fees and never expire!
Keep 'em lit,
