Its funny, you either get really good deals or things blow past the MSRP... Not as often on the pipe side though..

I noticed a lot of stuff has been really high lately from bidders in high-tax states.

And I don't feel guilty at all.

I was putting in a tobacco order with TobaccoPipes earlier and finally nabbed a Rossi 320 for cheap. I've wanted a Rubino 320 for a while but couldn't pass up the price for the Vittoria when I saw it. We'll see later in the week when it shows up.

I just paid for my last purchase I'll ever make on Cbid. I got a great deal on 1 tine of pipe tobacco for 7.50, and had bids on 3 other tins. The other tins went close to or over MSRP, so I gave up. Problem is, now I'm paying the standard shipping price for 1 item and the total ends up being more than MSRP. I think people work pretty hard to get multiple item in a ship week to make the shipping cost worth it. Problem is that if you get caught up in the nonsense, you end up over paying, regardless.

I'm just not built to participate in the bidding sites.

I typically only participate in "buy it now" on the "bay" for he same reason. Just too easy to get caught up in competition, for me.

Just received 3 tins of Dunhill Flake and 1 tin of Dunhill Dark Flake to try. Paid a little on the steep end due to availability.

All that just to hear the news that Scandinavian Tobacco Group just announced that they will be producing and shipping Dunhill blends again. My timing always seems to be a little off. Oh well.

I feel the same way Erik. I have never managed to "win" an eBay auction. Recently, I bid on a Castello fiammata greatline estate pipe, a relative rarity. My maximum bid was a little below what I estimated the pipe to be worth and twice the current bid a couple of days prior to closing. I had the highest bid until the final 10 seconds at which point another bidder outbid me by 10 bucks. I have no regrets because it left me with the money to buy a new greatline from Mike Gluker at Briar Blues but it pretty much quenched my interest in eBay pipe auctions.

well at least youíll have some to compare to the new stuff!
When I bid on a pipe Iíll place the highest Iím willing to go and I donít even check after that, if someone is willing to pay more, well so be it.

Postman did me well today, new pipes and a few tins, the pipes are in nice sanitized condition, both take a pipe cleaner and im happy with them. Looks like the one with the carving has a replacement stem but for $65 i can live with that
