FYI: I received a (return)call from Chance Whittamore, master pipe restorer, and eBay seller Great Estate Pipes. If y'all have been looking on his eBay page for new pipes for auction/sale, well, he had a home disaster, unfortunately. But he and his family are ok! His house flooded - everything inside was destroyed. Including his computers. LUCKILY his shop was in a separate garage which wasn't affected! So, your and my pipes that were in his shop are safe! So if you've sent pipes for Chance to restore or sell on consignment for you, don't fear, his work will begin in a week or so, after he gets his family somewhat settled in a temporary home. He wants everyone to know, so please put it out on the interwebs! He also is still planning on going to the Columbus show. Keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers - they have quite a challenge on their hands.
