Personal, old fashioned touch in a very small package. – This place has lots of things, but they definitely specialize in tobacco. Particularly pipe tobacco. Although I am an experienced cigar smoker, I have never owned a pipe and they helped me to pick out a good pipe. They didn't even make fun of me when I expressed the stereotypical "I want one like Sherlock Holmes" desire.
These folks also have all sorts other "Gifts" as well as magazines of, uh, all sorts. In fact, I coincidentally picked up a Hohner Special 20 Harmonica that I had been meaning to get.. just totally out of the blue! The folks there really knew their tobacco, and made all sorts of recommendations to me and showed me the somewhat elaborate process. Since I was buying a fair amount, the guy even threw in what was left of his personal pipe tobacco tin for me to try!
I was very pleased with these guys, there's very few old fashioned places like this left. The only downside is their hours, they are only open till 6:30 on the weekdays and a 5:30 on Saturday. Not sure about Sunday. Overall, highly recommended!
