    Stopped into a nice little antique store this weekend while on a road trip to visit some family.

    Rescued 4 pipes:

    I've been wanting a dragon claw meer for some time now and couldn't pass it up for $25:

    I just really liked the shape and color of this tawny saddle Comoy's for $40:

    This little Wally Frank was just to nice to pass up for $18 and it'll be great for shorter smokes:

    And lastly, the piece of resistance and my favorite, a Savinelli deluxe milano 413KS punto oro for $40:

    Really looking forward to enjoying these pipes. That dragon claw could get dedicated to lakelands but I haven't decided yet.

    It was a great little store in downtown Prescott. The owner (I'm assuming) was very nice and a good conversationalist. He seemed to really enjoy his job and meeting/talking with people.

    Had some nice GBDs too. He had an absolutely gorgeous 4 dot rusticated bent bulldog Sasieni. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the price tag of $40. Then I saw the previous owner felt the need to carve his name into the side of it. Sonuva...

    I get to Prescott about 3 times a year and stopping in to this place is now a standard on my list. As well as Prescott Brewing Company.

    He had lots of other neat things besides pipes too.

    What a great discovery. I really approve the selection, some really nice picks, and reasonable prices. "Can't beat it with a stick," as the old saying goes.

    Wow! Shanez, great pipe finds and all out of one shop is really lucky!

    Every time I get a chance spend a bit of time in new city.
    I always try to find an antique mall or a few antique shops to visit. The fun part is in the hunting for old pipes.
    The icing on the cake is finding one or two that you like enough to take home and refurbish to be smoked and enjoyed again.

    Bingo! Great finds. Especially like the Wally Frank, as I used to go there when I was a young lad.

    Enjoy!

    Very nice finds! I especially like that Comoy's, but I am a sucker for an interesting stem.

    Those Tawny Saddle Comoy's are a good value. Was the $40 Sasieni a "Four Dot" or "4 Dot", if the former, grab it.

    If we're talking Prescott Ontario, then that was in Canadian dollars;reduce the price by 35% to arrive at cost in US dollars. Even more of a deal for our neighbors to the south.

    Beautiful pipes, all! Nice score. I went to an antique fair hoping to find some gems like you, but they were all cheap garbage.
