Okay, last weekend I take my brother in law to the local tobacco shop as he want's to buy a good cigar. While in the store I notice a great looking tin. It's 3 inches wide about 6 inches long and an inch deep. I asked the store clerk about it and she goes on to tell me all about how great this pipe tobacco is. She looked at me strangely when I asked her if I could just buy the tin. She said sure, for 16 dollars and she would throw in the tobacco for free!grin I love a good sense of humor!
So, talk me out of making this ridiculous purchase or failing that... anyone smoke a pipe?
It's Erinsmore Flake Tobacco

People sell empty tins on ebay all the time. Here is Erinmore's smaller tin....

Not exactly cheap for what most smokers likely think of as trash, but it is at least empty. grin

Matt, I have to be an enabler- I have to take a run over to Burlington next week, and I want to know which store this was. *grinning like a maniac* I can't talk you out of it; I'm hoping I can talk me out of it. :P

I was afraid you were going to say say that one- wrong end of town.

Thanks for the offer though, maybe next time.
