Default Any pipe smokers? Cigar smokers too!

I recently followed my father's lead into pipes. The wife LOVES the smell and I enjoy the hobby. Collecting is always a pleasure for me.

Anyways, where do you folks go for tobacco?

I visited Tobacco Villiage in Wilmington, DE twice so far. The owner was incredibly nice, gave me a discount, and offered to ship tobacco to me to save me the effort of driving up. I ask because I am heading to VA tomorrow and I'd like to grab some more tobacco before I leave for Hawaii.

I think there are like 2 pipe smokers on these boards. There was a thread that hasn't been bumped in a while. You are not far from Boswells in PA, I have been wanting to visit.

In VA, I recommend J.B. Hayes. John Hayes, the owner is a pipe smoker and very nice guy. Bring a pipe, they usually have lots of free samples. John Crouch and Georgetown Tobacco are not bad.

Lots of other shops I've been to have tobacco, but cater less to pipes. Best prices by far are online though: pipesandcigars.com

Good to see some replies

Pipes and cigars is where I typically browse, but I'm unsure how fast their shipping is and if they can even ship to Hawaii. I'll be sure to stop by JB in VA.

I've got about a dozen pipes and only 3 tobaccos I regularly smoke. I guess it's time to sell a few pipes

I smoke cigars and my wife hates the smell of it. I usually get mine from Cigar International and a local store called Havana Connections.

hey there. Me too havana connections. I like a mild Rothschild type - short and fat - easy draw and you let it go out to smoke later. I've been to jr cigar off i 95. The store is huge and the entire room is a humidor. They do web sales of cigars and pipe tobacco.

Jr is great. I used to go to one of their other locations before I moved out here. Definitely a great store.

Jr is awesome. The one I went to recently was like a flea market though.

What tobaccos?

I have too many pipes and only smoke about 3-4 of them, very infrequently.

Blackfang, what's the cigar like? Heavy, spicy, smooth?

I don't have a favorite store, but I'm a fan of Acid Kuba Kubas, and all the other normal stuff like Montecristos...

Georgetown tobacco is AWESOME!

I highly recommend you folks near DC check it out. I ended up walking out with 18ozs of pipe tobacco for an extremely reasonable price. They also have a nice selection of cigars.

There is a guy that owns a shop called Cigar-ette City in Peoples Plaza and Suburban Plaza in Newark, he is kind of pricy though.

I order everything from www.cigarbid.com, never pay more then $5 a stick and that is usally Man 'O War, My Father and other AJ Fernandez lines. May not have every cigar, but a great place to get steals off samplers.

Wow, did not expect to see a pipe thread on here...

I have 2 Boswell's, 2 Jake Hackert's, 1 Peterson and a few Savinelli's. Haven't smoked any of them in a while. Maybe I should break one out soon.

I'm jealous, which Peterson do you have?

I was going to pick one up at Georgetown but it was out of my price range. I'm dying to get one!

wanted to pop in here and say this thread got me on a mission to purchase my first pipe. I am leaning towards a savinelli. Seems to be decently priced and most people give them great reviews. I always loved the smell of pipes and the taste the few times I have tried one. Not sure why I keep finding a cig in my hands instead.

My first pipe was a Savinelli. They are consistently good pipes. You don't need the little balsa inserts, chuck it and get an adaptor if the draw is too open. Just try not to inhale

Hit me up if you want a "starter package". I've got a few pipes I don't use much.

Pipes are fantastic, I just haven't been able to justify spending $200+ on one pipe yet. I probably will once I get to Hawaii.
