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. The price listed is for the pipe.  Postage is paid for by the buyer (about 15$ to the US from Bulgaria or less in Europe – bundling multiple purchases is possible) but specific rates and options will be determined after receiving a mailing address.  Payment can be via PayPal using my email address: ThePipeSteward@gmail.com.  Contact me or leave a comment below with your questions.
