Very nice - I'm enjoying a Bonfiglioli at the moment - really well made it seems and I'd suspect yours is as well! Enjoy!

Bravo to all involved in the show. It was a first for me and the experience I had in viewing all the wonderful pipes and sampling the many tobaccos was amazing. Not to mention the amazing people I talked to. I picked up a simple Brebbia hourglass that I am smoking now.

Wow, great choices. I was eyeing that lumberman too. Beautiful pipe at a pretty damn good price, I thought.

Glad it found a great home. :puffy:

Dang, I missed meeting you. Nice pipes!!

I had a great time as well, and not a bad guy in the bunch. Everyone was so nice and approachable. I had a blast and feel like I am a part of bigger family of pipe smokers now. I hope to see everyone that I've met at other shows. I've got the bug now. On the drive home, Lora and I were making plans to hit as many pipe shows as possible from here on out.

Nice pipes! It was a great show, I missed you as well. At least I think I did. It was pretty crazy keeping up with meeting and talking to so many people.

That's what I'm always trying to say when I'm preaching on how great pipe shows are ! You summed it up well. It IS like family, whether you have met before or not. The more shows you hit, the more people you get to know across a table, standing in line, BS'ing on a patio, sitting next to them at dinner, and the more friends you make the more you look forward to seeing them again next year.
There is still time to book for Vegas :D
