Annual Holiday

10/06/2013 17:26

I shall be taking a break from Wednesday 12 June until Monday 24 June.  I shall be trying to complete as many orders as I can in the next three days, particularly repairs which I have got behind with lately, due to pressure of other work.  If you have a pipe for repair, I recommend you hold on to it until after 24 June.  This will be my first summer break for about twenty years, but it is a special occasion – I’m getting married on 15 June to the lovely Rose!  It will be less than twenty years before my next holiday :)

Back to Work

24/06/2013 17:27

Monday mornings are not the easiest, especially hard this morning after 12 days off work.  I have a number of phone calls to return and my inbox is full so please bear with me while I clear the backlog, if you have emailed in the last two weeks, I will get round to replying, but it may take a few days.  Thanks to all of you offering congratulations to Rose and I on our wedding, everything went smoothly the weather was a little blustery, with the odd spot of rain, but mainly fine and sunny and everyone enjoyed themselves.  There was quite a bit of clearing up to do afterwards, but we did manage to get away for a few days to Wales last week.

A new category of pipes have been added to the site – Hand Made.

Pipes in this category have been hand crafted by Mike Billington of Blakemar Briars.

The process these pipes have gone through is that similar to our video ‘The Making of a Blakemar Briar Tobacco Pipe‘, displayed on YouTube.

Each pipe is unique, no two pipes will be the same.

More of these pipes are to be added in the coming weeks, stay tuned.
