Please “indulge” me.

“Mass purchases” were the reason for the Reformation.

If you want to participate, tack your order form to the church door (95 item limit) and we’ll still be arguing about this in 500 years.

Question: Do you have to be Roman Catholic to participate in a mass buy? :wink: :wink:
Nope! All are welcome.

And it is surprisingly affordable, too!

A typical Mass stipend is $10.

Even if this was feasible, it's about a year or two too late to attract my interest. McClelland is gone, just for starters. Not to mention that my cellar is stocked up bigger than it really needs to be already, from buying so-called doomed blends over the past year or so.

And besides, I don't know you. And what if this is really a scam? You see? When you get to be my age, your faith in man diminishes a bit. But, regardless, I wish you the very best in your endeavors.
I could take offense about your comment that what I posted might really be a scam.
I am real,just ask John Boy,Thunktank, and CWSpook.They and a couple other guys all met me - John Boy twice.
I don't know you either and shame on you for having faith in man.
I hope you don't take offense. I sure nothing personal was intended. But you were talking $500 then $1000. This is pretty big money to most of us. It would take King Solomon to manage this fairly.
It was a nifty idea.... maybe not a practical one to pursue, but still a pretty nifty idea.

Keep on brainstorming. Breathe new life into this stodgy old corner of the Internet!
Thank you for your kind words Del - really. :)

After 545 views and no takers, C-note seed money offer is withdrawn,to be invested in a CD. Too bad. :(
I will henceforth attempt to negotiate purchase ghost brands directly on CPS -> I prefer aros and light english/VA.
OK you,tobacco hoarders, who's willing to part with 8 oz.or so ... and I do negotiate - no top dollar here. :)

I was pretty sure Del was a sock puppet when he first signed on.

Well, just do like the rest of us have done over the last 10 years and take your $500 and buy more tobacco than you’ll ever be able to smoke, this is how we hook the next gen too, after we die our grandkids will stumble onto our stash and say, hmmm I think I’ll try one of these pipes and 100+ tins that grandpa hoarded...
