Pipes and Cigars had a 15% off sale on top of a Dunhill Sale.

I feel like I robbed them. About $6 for Dunhill tins....

Apologies in advance to our Canadian friends....

You're a keen shopper.

As for me, am getting low on three of my favorites, so today I bought

Two pounds of bulk McClelland No. 2015 Virginia-Perique Flake
Two 500 gram boxes of Gawith Hoggarth Brown Flake (unscented)
One 500 gram box of Gawith Hoggarth Scotch Flake
Five 1.75 ounce tins McClelland Pebble Cut

4 Noggins price on the 2015 was lower, and they had Pebble Cut in stock, so I got those there
SmokingPipes had GH Scotch Flake, whereas 4Nogins did not, so I got the three boxes from them.

But, ouch! That all set me back $332. But I did get FREE shipping. Not likely I'll be buying any more for quite a while.
That's a lot o 'baccy!

That's over 5 lbs!

There are folk who buy 5 pounds of just McClelland No. 2015 Virginia-Perique Flake, alone. Both 4Noggins & SmokingPipes have a 5 pound price. I considered getting 5 pounds but I don't have enough empty Kerr jars.

I ordered late in the afternoon so I called and messaged in hopes they will be able to add to the box a tub of Prince Albert

Ordered a tin of C&D Carolina Red Flake, just to try it. It arrived today and even before smoking some I'm wishing I had ordered more. Stuff smells gooooooooood...

Presently packing away the 2 pounds of 2015 and three 500 gram boxes of GH Flake. Almost have the 2015 and Brown Flake done but I ran out of 1/2 pint jars so the 500 g (17+ ounces) box of Scotch Flake got crammed into six 4 ounce jars.
