Could not agree more, i've been obsessed with scavenging through antique malls and thrift shops long before I smoked pipes. Like an archeologist on a dig.

Now that I'm a pipe smoker and restoration enthusiast i'm always on the lookout. Recently found a little hole in the wall thrift shop/antique mall in an alley that has yielded three amazing pipes in the past two weeks.

Walk into every curious little shop, no exceptions.
