I've been good lately so I rewarded myself with a SMS lattice bent billiard meerschaum. I've been wanting one for a good while and the price was right at Frenchy's on this used one.

Thanks, it was a nice find, the shop owner was letting me rummage through a bunch of old drawers full of pipes and I found that one and he was suprised he still had it, said it was about 10 years old, and they don't make them with the buffalo shank anymore, said if I didn't buy it he would probably up the price and put it on display, so I was happy to get the deal I got on it. It has pretty much taken up the mantle of my new favorite pipe!

A friend of mine from our pipe club has had this pipe for quite some time but he never smokes it. I asked him to bring it this week just so I could see it again, and I left pipe club with a new pipe :)
It's a no name knock off of Gandalf's pipe but i really like how the entire shank is made of some sort of wood instead of Vulcanite.
(sorry the img is poor quality, i took it with my phone).

Got and estate basket. Four stingers a twin bore and a small Bavarian three piece and what appears to be a 70-80 GBD, hardly smoked.

The wife loves the Bavarian for decoration so I reckon mine is half price. :lol:

I'm travelling on business and forgot to bring a pipe. I did a little retail therapy in order to feel better about the situation:
