Re: Hello from Portland Or

Greetings from Corvallis. As for shops in the area, of course Rich's is the biggest and most well known. They have their fans and their detracters but well worth stopping by to see for yourself.

http://www.richscigarstore.com/

Steve Books, the well known blender who used to work through Rich's, now has his own shop:

House of Calabash

I haven't been yet, but intend to stop by next time I head up that way.

Mark, go to Powell's someday. The only place I've ever been that even remotely reminded me of the place was The Strand in NYC.

Oh, I will. You're obligated to make the pilgrimage at least once in your life, right?

Indeed! And when you do let me know and I'll meet you up there for dinner and a few pipe fulls.

Re: Hello from Portland Or

Welcome, Andrew, though I'm a bit tardy here. Are you looking for primarily pipe shops or cigar shops? I can't help you much on the pipe shop side, as I buy almost all my pipe tobacco online. I can say that Tobacco Town on Barbur Boulevard comes in mighty handy for the occasional tin of 1792 Flake, Squadron Leader, Royal Yacht, or Erinmore Flake (to name a few), and can second what John says about Rich's - I've never seen so many pipes in one shop.

On the cigar side, I like to hang at Broadway Cigar Company (both locations), though I only buy there to smoke there. There are a couple of good shops on 82nd Avenue, and I hear that 11th Avenue Liquor and Smoke Shop has some amazing prices, though I have not yet been - it's next on my list.

See you on here, and out there, Andrew. p

1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?
