Well, today .... Wed, Jan 10th .... I just called in an order --- almost all coins (spun cut).
Tins:
1) Mac Baren Royal Twist
1) Charatan Rolls
1) Davidoff Flake Medallions
2) Savinelli Doblone d'Oro
These will join other tins of coins peacefully resting in the cellar. Did I "NEED" these tins?
Hmm, guess I'm not sure of the exact definition of "NEED" (???).
Also added some Sutliff Bulks:
4oz 507-S Stoved VA
2oz TS-20 Louisiana Perique (since I'm planning on trying more "Homemade Vapers").

Comment for Bbailey324:
Your pic of LBF is totally awesome (!!!). I considered adding some to my (above) TAD, but already have some jarred, now with 11 years age. Still ....

Rattray’s Marlin Flake - 4 100g tins
Rattray’s Old Gowrie - 4 50g tins (never had it)
Match Elizabethan - 2 oz (never had it)

I don’t normally buy tobaccos I’ve never tried at this point (especially pricier ones) but I love Marlin Flake and Old Gowrie can be harder to find so I plunged. The 2 oz of Match Elizabethan wasn’t a huge commitment price-wise.

I’ll be loading the boat whenever there’s another c&d bulk sale as I’m down to under 1 lb of Pegasus which is downright terrifying.

Went into Edwards looking for one thing . . .ended buying a crap ton of other stuff. The McConnell buy was sold as Cuban tobacco sent to the UK and then able to be imported to US because it came from UK. I don’t know. I suck at saying no to buying stuff.

That haul would be tough to resist. I too suffer from that condition.

Back when JR Cigar Factory Store was in Statesville, I’d stop in for a tin or two of Blackwoods flake. Unsuccessfully trying to find a picture of the old walk-in humidor. Guessing, it was 30 ft x 100ft. The first 1/4 of the store was dedicated to pipes, mostly tobacco. All that to say, resistance was futile.

Then there was McCranies in Charlotte.…
