If it seems as if we've just sent to you one of these loquaciously long-winded, rhetoric laden newsletters, then I'd like to open by setting the record straight: we did. As previously mentioned, we've prepared our Thursday update for you folks a day early to skirt around the holiday (for your sake, honest). And with it comes a newsletter a day ahead of schedule as well. How else are you going to learn about all the nifty things we're up to 'round here? How else are you going to discover just what we've got up our sleeve for Black Friday?
Oh but before we get to all this business about Black Friday, and specials, and discounts, and what have you, you should really take a look at the new and improved Pipe Locator that Randy has been working on for the last few days. He's really suped-up the way the site handles these kinds of searches; you'll find improved functionality, extra filters, and pretty, pretty pictures. It's all very exciting, and while I'm tempted to type here in great length exactly why it's such an improvement over the 'old way', you're really better off just clicking through to play with it yourself. Besides, you don't want to read all that. No, what you really want to know about now is our Black Friday special, don't you?
I'm really looking for a clever way in, you guys; a carrot to dangle or a rabbit to pull out of a hat, something that sparkles and shimmies with jazz hands, you know? We really want to present something exciting and it needs to be announced the right way. On the other hand, we don't want to hype up anything too much, we'd hate to distort the expectation. QUANDARY!
All right, out with it...
We're offering 10% OFF of all pipe tobacco. Yes, this includes BOTH the tinned and bulk variety. We're running this special from this moment until Monday 9:00 AM EST. On top of that we're, of course, still running our Peterson promotion through the end of the month. Oh, it's a good time to be a pipe smoker, isn't it? It's also a good time to be a gift buyer.
Speaking of gift buying, pipe smoking, and excellent deals, be sure to check out the rest of our update, which includes fresh pipes from Tom Eltang, Kevin Arthur, Ardor, Ser Jacopo, Savinelli, Mastro de Paja, and Peterson, in addition to a bombardment of seventy-two recently restored (many of which are unsmoked) estate pipes. Golly!
