Pipes for Sale

Profits for the sale of pipes are given to the work of the Daughters of Bulgaria.

Thanks for looking!  I will be adding pipes in need of new stewards as I restore them.  All the pipes offered have been cleaned thoroughly, and are ready to be adopted!  You can read about the story of each pipe and their restoration by searching The Pipe Steward.
