I had to stop buying pipes for a couple of reasons recently. They are expensive, depending on one’s preferences and I ran out of space to showcase what I have. I was using a shelf on my desk, but it’s rather dark up there and crowded with the nine pipes I’ve accumulated. I didn’t just want a little pipe rack that held a few pipes to place on my desk. Since I don’t smoke as often as some people, it seemed a waste of space for me.
My lovely wife had a great idea to get this particular display case from IKEA. I have to say, in person it looks like a museum display.
I hope you enjoy the pics. Rest assured, these won’t be all the pipes I plan to have. Over time, and with some gained knowledge, I hope to gain some spectacular pipes for my collection.
