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.

I have two 100g tins of FM. On The Town, and the regular FM. Some of the 1st pipe tobacco I purchased back almost 2 years ago now. Had thought the On The Bayou was sorta good, so I got them. But I have found since that I love the McClelland VaPers, and also a couple of the bulk Gawith Hoggarth Virginia Flakes. Don't know if or when I'll ever crack that FM. Watch for a tobacco yard sale I may soon have.

Thirty 1.75 Ounce Tins of McClelland Club Old Beacon Extra , on P&Cs 15% off Cyber Monday sale.

Yes, that's right, 30 tins. Nearly 3-1/2 pounds. It's that good. And it was now or never to stock up before it was all gone.

Cyber Monday sale Code is cyber17

I just ordered 1 lb of PS LNF and 8 oz of the Bullseye Flake. Now I am a little sad that I didn't order some MCC X60. Next time.

Before I buy it I was wondering if anybody had any thoughts on Gawith Hoggarth's Rich Dark Honeydew? I have every reason to believe I'll like it, but other's perspectives are always helpful.

What with McClelland not able to make certain blends I enjoy due to crop issues, I decided to shore up my supply of one of their unaffected and really wonderful blends, Aurora. I have 9 tins of it aging that I don't want to touch, so I got 11 more for only $90 with P&Cs 10% off, and free shipping.

Our Canadian Rusty first told me how great this blend is, and how well it ages, and he was spot on....

Three tins each of three McClelland blends: St. James Woods, No. 24. and Tudor Castle.

A tin of C&D We Three Kings
2 tins of Cult Blood Red Moon
1 tin of Dunhill My Mixture BB1938 from smokingpipes.com

They mixed up and sent me a tin of C&D King Cake instead of the We Three Kings. So I called and they're shipping me that one and I get to keep the King Cake. Curious if anyone has tried that one? It part of their Cellar Series and the can says it best aged 10-15 years.
