Bringing exposure to wonderful artisans whose shops have gone unnoticed or under appreciated.

A carved dragon found at FashionPipes on etsy is a far cry from the corncob pipes I remember from the Beverly Hillbillies. My dad had a very plain bowl pipe, and I still remember the scent of cherries. You certainly don’t have to smoke to appreciate the artistic beauty in an attractively handcrafted work of art, and there is a thriving community of pipe collectors looking to add a unique piece to their collection. Take a few minutes to peruse their extensive selection of hand carved pipe designs ready to beautifully grace any mantle display.
You will also discover a variety of cigarette holders and long pipes, just like Sherlock Holmes’ from the movies. These pipes are skillfully crafted from pear wood in the Ukraine and ship worldwide. What a wonderful surprise gift a little carved treasure would make for Father’s Day or dad’s birthday. Who knows, one of these amazing pipes may even spark a pipe collection quest!
