      I think I'll just put the entire catalog up on the web and let absentee voters call in or email in bids prior to the live auction.  I don't see any reason to make the airlines richer.

      Hey, what a great idea! Heck, in a booming economy like we have now, any old idiot can buy a plane ticket and reserve a hotel room for several days. And really, who gives a shit if such an enterprise costs a lot more than the pipes sell for. After all, the whole idea is to be a cool motherfucker and be seen in Chicago.

      > Contact the Chicago Pipe Club and reserve a table for the upcoming show in May and on Friday May 2nd go to DFW and board a plane for ORD. When you get to ORD pick up a rental car and drive to Pheasant Run in St Charles and check into a room and be in the presence of 1000's of pipe smokers. Get up Saturday morning and go put all the pipes with pricing that you want to get on your table and wait for the crowds to come by and buy your pipes. Now if your greedy and price your pipes to high they will not sell and nobody will buy them from you and if your way to cheap you might sell them all but not make any money so ... know what you have and price them accordingly. Come Sunday evening get back in your rental car and go back to ORD and get on a plane to go back home to DFW.
      > If ya do this and price your pipes right you will sell them all or most of them and if you wish to sell em all there will be people there to take them off your hands in quantity and right now you can do this for about $650 plus your food and drink. Now what better deal can you get then that? $650 to be in front of possibly 1000's of avid pipe smokers and collectors who are there to shop and buy. Sell just a couple of your decent offerings and that covers your expenses and sell a couple more and your in the profits for the trip. If you seriously have a good selection of high and decent quality offerings and they are priced right you should have no problem getting rid of allot of product.

I just acquired an estate consisting of 300 pipes, Radice, Ser Jacopo, Charatan, Preban Holm, Etc. All very high quality and most of them are unsmoked. I am checking the interest level for a live pipe auction in Cedar Hill for the month of March. Absentee bidding would be allowed and the entire inventory will be shown on the web prior to the event.
