Just a quick blog today to announce the inclusion of Estate Pipes on The Pipe Nook web store! Some of you have been asking if I will branch into this facet of the pipe collecting hobby, and while I was hesitant to begin with, I've had estate pipes on the site for a week now, and they have already earned their permanent place here.
Estate pipes are a quick and inexpensive way to build your pipe collection! Pipes designated as "Estate Pipes" have been previously owned, and in many cases smoked, although some unsmoked pipes will find their way into this category from time to time and are noted as such. Our Estate Pipe offerings at The Pipe Nook are from my personal collection. Sometimes a pipe just doesn't "click" with its owner for whatever reason, and that's what these are--good pipes all, unless otherwise stated, but ones that I rarely reach for to smoke. Most of these pipes have been very lightly smoked and haven't even had time to build up a cake. They have been well cared for and not abused.
NOTE: I am not a pipe refurbishing expert. Buyers should satisfy themselves as to the cleanliness of each pipe upon arrival before smoking, but in most cases there won't be much to do. See individual pipe descriptions for details!
I started the category last weekend with about 21 pipes, and I've already sold about two-thirds of my stock! That's encouraging, so I'll be sure to add various estate pipes in the future. So check out the Estate Pipes section under the "Pipes" category, and I hope you find a deal on something of interest to add to your collection!
Keep 'em Lit,
