One of the most popular Ligne Bretagne shapes ever has been our straight poker. It's one of the larger bowl sizes and over the years, we've been fortunate enough to sell every one we've made. Alas, all good things come to an end. I haven't made any in a couple of years at least, as I thought we'd already run out of stummels. However, Emily went searching and managed to find one remaining bag of seven stummels left. One has already sold so six are left, three of which are now posted to the site and the other three are earmarked for something more unusual, possibly (They may end up being finished as they are or heavily modified, I haven't decided yet). Annnd... That will be it. When these three sell and I finish up the last three, that will be the end of the Ligne Bretagne poker shape, at least among the standard-line non-Collectors, assuming that I don't find another cache of them buried at the bottom of a crate full of billiards or something.
January 18th - The Ligne Bretagne deluge continues! Well, if one can call five new pipes a "deluge", anyway, but I'm doing my best to get some inventory up on the site after it sat empty for so much of December while I did Yule pipes. The new ones are a nice bunch - mostly bulldogs, though there's one slightly bent Canadian among them. The real standout is the new grade 5 smooth squat bulldog. It's gorgeous. Now THAT is the way to start off a year!
January 8th - Hey hey, we've all survived another year! It's been quite a ride. 2014 was a heck of an adventure, what with its massive ice storm and all, and as I type this the temperatures outside here in sunny NC are hovering around 17 degrees, which just seems blasphemous somehow. Where's our 50 degree January? But in any event, I'm back with more pipes. Eight new Ligne Bretagnes kick off the new year, in a wide variety of colors and styles with something for every taste, and some new look that haven't been seen before too! So, check them out in the catalog and see what you think - There are a couple of churchwardens, the usual passel of bulldogs, and more. I'll be back again in a few days with new Talbert Briars, and eventually I also hope to be posting some very nice handmade pipe stands as well.
