We had a young woman come into the shop yesterday looking to buy a "lady pipe". She had the usual backstory that is so often heard, she smoked some CB in a Dr. G when she was in college and would like to get back into it for the relaxation aspect of the hobby. I showed her several pipes in many price points and she settled on a nicely done Italian mini churchwarden. We got her some 1-Q and the tools and cleaners that she will need and extended an open invitation to call or come back if she needs any help or advice. I got to converse with her for a while and explained that there are many female pipe and cigar enthusiasts as well as female pipe makers. She appears to be very dedicated to adopting the hobby and I hope to see her return in the near future. All in all it's a positive sign for the pipe community.
