    Have any of you ever ordered consigment tins from http://www.pipestud.com? If so were they reliable?

    I'll second what woodsroad said. In my opinion Pipestud's Consignment Shop is without peer and I can recommend it wholeheartedly, as I have made multiple purchases from him with NO problems.

    Steve Fallon (pipestud) is one of the most reputable dealers in the business as well as being a great guy. Personally, I trust him implicitly. When buying vintage tins there is always a chance that the tin has been compromised, Steve inspects all his offerings carefully and if he has the slightest doubt about a tin he will note it in his description.

    He's an long-time, active member of the pipesmoking community. The fact that he didn't post on this thread speaks volumes as to his character and positive reputation.

    Steve Fallon (aka Pipestud) is a paragon of virtue and an all around nice guy.

    I have purchased MANY pipes from him on Ebay and when I had a question about one, he emailed the ARTISAN and got me an answer in less than 24 hours.

    I have also purchased a good many tins from his consignment site. He bills and ships CRAZY fast.

    I live in WA and his packages from TX frequently take 2-3 days.

    He is a superstar.

    I think my last feedback on ebay for him was, "minor diety" or somesuch. lol

    I recently had him sell some pipes for me. There was a small problem that he resolved WAY beyond my expectations of fairness. He is simply as good as it gets. Period.

    Steve, proprietor of pipestud.com, basically represents the best that the pipe world has to offer. Order with confidence. I've done so for years.

    There is no one who would say a bad word about him. He deals honestly and fairly, and is a credit to the hobby.

    Steve is a great guy. Ordered from his site and his auctions many times. Also was lucky enough to enjoy a smoke with him at the KC Pipe Show. Plus he beat me in the slow smoke contest! (although so did all but one other guy...)

    after sending 2 emails to him I could tell he is a great guy, and know I will be ordering from him again in the future. I told him that you guys had nothing but good things to say about him

    What can I say, He's a fellow Texan from Waco, home of the Texas Rangers and Baylor. Absolutely the best in the world, Steve too

    Can we all join hands now for a rousing rendition of Kumbaya?
    Steve may have a first here: all thumbs up and no naysayers. Speaks volumes.

    Pipestud is a Bum!

    He comes from a state that had an NFL coach named Bum!

    What does that tell you?

    I always thought of Bum Phillips as a winner...I guess this guy will do also.

    I have twice. I got 3 tins 7 year aged HH vintage Syrian and the second time was. G.L Pease bohemian grove. The only thing that I thought was odd was with the Bohemian grove I bought it for $5 or $10 cheaper from him through eBay then what was listed on his website. And it was not from bidding I used the buy it now option and shipping was the same either way. Not really an issue. I came out on top. Answered all my question and seems to be a straight up guy. I would definitely buy again some time.

    Because straight is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life and few be there that find it.

    Holy Cow!

    I am truly overwhelmed by all the very kind comments (many coming from long-time wonderful customers). I will now try to leave my office for the evening. Getting out the door will be a little difficult as my head has swelled up tremendously.

    Thanks again,

    Pipestud

    Well Steve, you wouldn't get so many good comments if you weren't such a damned nice guy. I've been buying pipes from you for about five years and in my less than humble opinion, you're the the seller on eBay.

    By now I must have bought 10 pipes from Steve. It's not just that he's a gentleman, and fast, and fair, and friendly, but he is always, everywhere, and without fail a gentleman, fast, fair, and friendly.
