Pipe Shows

Friday Night at the Richmond Pipe Show 2010

On Friday, October 1st – Pipers, Pipe Makers and Tobacco Blenders descended on Richmond, VA for the 26th Annual CORPS Exposition & Celebration. The official exhibits open today, on Saturday, but there were several people showing pipes for sale in their rooms Friday night. There were cocktail receptions, a great Southern-style dinner of bbq pork, fried chicken, with other typical Southern accompaniments.
Here are a few photos from Friday night at the 2010 Richmond Pipe Show.

Hello American Pipe Friends,
I’m a French pipe smoker … so please accept my apologies for my poor English ;-)
In France we can just dream about such a nice event… and hope to have the chance to come one day in the US and visit an event like Richmond Pipe Show.
Thanks for these great pictures!!
This way we participate a little bit… nose flattened on the screen :))
Enjoy your pipe
Renzo
