Call of the Weekend
Many of you are probably already bolting off for your long-weekend fun, so I'll try to make this quick. This Labor Day weekend, there are some things you might want to keep in mind: promotions to take advantage of, beautiful pipes to see, that kind of thing. Let's start with Monday. Michael Parks was a big hit on Monday's update, but two of his darkly-stained beauties managed to hang out on our website. Sykes has been making us quite jealous by sending photos from Denmark, such as this behind-the-scenes shot from inside the workshop with Tom Eltang.
Between new-to Smokingpipes brands/pipe carvers and promotions there's a lot to say about this week. The Rossi promotion, with the free shirts, kicked off yesterday and has been a huge hit. We still have shirts though, so keep those orders coming. Great pipe, great value, and great (free) shirt... who can argue with that? In addition, previous promotions still ongoing are as follows: Lane Limited bulk tobacco is still on sale, select boxes of CAO cigars recieve a free cigar cutter, 20% off 5 tins of Escudo/Orlik, and 20% off select Savinelli pipes.
Whew, that's a lot to get out. Only, it feels like I'm forgetting something. Ah yes, we've added two new brands to our already vast library of pipes. Neither is new to the pipe business, simply new to Smokingpipes.com. The first name you should be familiar with: Rattray's. The popular tobacconist established his Scotland shop in 1903. Their blends have graced Smokingpipes.com for some time now, but until yesterday, the pipes were sadly abscent. We're glad that's been remedied.
The second newcomer to SPC is Konstantin Shekita of Ukraine. This master of the briar produces only about 200 pipes annually, but upon seeing their detail anyone can see it is a wonder he produces that many. We are quite happy to have these beautiful works of art added to Smokingpipes.com. As always, far more photos are posted to social media than on this blog, so to see more about any of these events, just click through to our pages! Have a great Labor Day weekend, and don't forget to check out Monday's update on your day off.
