THis was my FIRST ever CC purchase...and boy do they smell terriffic! I was lucky enough to get my hands on a 10 pack of Romeo y Julieta Ex #4 from 1999! I am so damn excited to smoke one of these things...if heaven has a smell, I think that it would smell like THESE cigars!!!
Walked into the local B&M after lunch and they had (yes, past tense now) an 8 ounce bag of Stonehaven. Flipped it on the counter and said "well John, looks like this is the start of my purchases today".
I'm just a sucker for Stony!
So I finished work early today and decided to walk home instead of the usual bus ride.
I took the route that took me past my local tobacco store just to see what pipe tobacco they might carry.
At first I noticed a few Peterson tins which I thought were pretty good and then I hit the jackpot...
Been a long time since I picked up a pipe. Laid them down with cigars, after getting addicted to cigarettes (damned things!)
Anyway, recently took up cigars again, with NO craving, so I was looking for a pipe to "roach out" really good cigars in. Saw these at the flea market and snagged them...
Well, after pulling the trigger on some Viajes today, I get ready and leave for a business meeting. Its was by a shop that I pop into every couple weeks or so. The owner is cool to me and I guess you can say I'm a "regular". In the past he has gone well out of his way for me.
So, I know he...
I was at a Goodwill Store looking for some books and made a $5 coffee roasting score. I found a West Bend Poppery II:dude:
As best I can tell, the thing has never been used or only used once or twice. I will probably just use it for darker roasts. Seems to get good and hot, but I have not...
I hope you are doing great today.
I was lucky enough to score a fiver of Holiday Blend Petite Robusto today. I called a local shop and they had just come in today. So I headed down and the owner was not there yet to price them so I figured I might as well have a cigar and wait...
Morning BOTL! Hope this finds you and yours in good health and spirits!
So, this morning my wife calls me from work and asks if I would be interested in a large wooden Gun Cabinet. One of the ladies she works with is getting divorced and getting rid of some items. I told her probably not...
At the flea market I scored a box of estate pipes and a lot of pieces and etc. In the box are 3 petersons 2 jobeys 3 kaywoodies 6 grabows 1 gbd 2 butz choquins and 3 savinellis. Not to mention all the parts.
Going to the store to buy more salt and everclear now.
Wish me luck!
P.s. - Scored the...
After pouring through the threads on here I decided to take the plunge and buy a Vineotemp. To say I got lucky would be an understatement. The unit that I found listed on Craigslist was won at a school auction. It was brand new in the box. The couple who won it only wanted the wine that was...
I finally won my first box on cbid. I got a box of Padilla Habano Robustos for 55 bucks. Now I can see why these sites are so addictive!! I got a nice spot at the bottom of my aging chest for these.:pray2:
I found this on my local craigslist....Romeo y Julieta Chest Humidor, showed my wife the ad and she said "Get it if you like it" :faint2: :car: It has some wear and tear on the outside, the inside is in great shape. I love the look of this humi.
Already in seasoning mode. :banana:
Stole a box of 24 Padilla Dominus Toro's last night for $103. That box of sticks goes for about $230 so less than half price and these are excellent smokes.
Never thought I'd win them that low. :razz:
I guess some great deals are out there if you look hard enough.
Stopped by my local shop today after work like I do about every payday.
Having Arturo Fuente/ Diamond Crown weekend. Specials on certain smokes.
Picked up a few, may have to go back tommorrow. LOL
8 - Curley Head Deluxe Maduro $3.25 ea

2 - Double Chateau...
My wife and went to Cigarbox today to get a thank you gift for a friend. While there my wife says "get yourself something nice too". Considering she knew I was there specifically to get my friend a Padron Family Reserve 45 (and what it costs), that was one heck of an offer.
I picked my friend...
