A new batch of vintage smoking companions has arrived. Lovingly pre-owned. Recently discovered. Each with its own 'true' story.
Last year, we introduced our first batch of one-of-a-kind vintage smoking devices, lightly and lovingly pre-owned, and only recently discovered. Each had its own “true” story. They sold out in a matter of seconds.
Now we're back with Batch #002 and they're sure to blow out in a puff of smoke! Since variety is the spice of life we scoured the metaverse and picked up pipes from Mexico to China to the Netherlands and back. We're particularly fond of a vintage metal and enamel hand-painted pipe that may or may not have been pulled from a collection of chintzy knickknacks unboxed at the home of Deng Xiaoping's American-born 7th cousin thrice removed. Practically CPC royalty.
Why Dad Pipes?
A pair of vintage 501s that fits you like a glove. A framed oil painting with just the right amount of patina. A dusty old LP with some long lost grooves. Back in the day, we used to wake up at the break of dawn, trudge through the flea market and hunt through stacks of junk just to have a chance at uncovering one of these hidden gems.
The internet’s made it a bit easier. Now, anyone with enough bucks in their PayPal account can pick up that rare bootleg tee without even getting out of bed. You want a pleather (the original vegan leather, duh) beanbag from Joni Mitchell’s 70s Laurel Canyon crash pad? There’s probably a site for that. And Ebay of course.
But for those that want to add a storied smoking apparatus to their quiver (what, you only use fresh glass, man?), there’s been a serious lack of trusted second-hand resources. Until Dad Pipes.
Put That In Your Pipe and Smoke It! (A Brief Rumination on The Joys of Burning A Bowl)
Believe it or not, there are young people these days that have never had the pleasure of sneaking a little pipe rip at intermission. Some don’t even know what a bong is! (Is this a vase, dad?) With all the high-tech weed smoking apparati that have come out in the past few years, it’s easy to forget that the world’s original method of lighting up is still one of the most enjoyable. We particularly like burning neatly packed bowls of Dad Grass CBD Flower or Mom Grass CBG Flower and savoring the flavor of fresh greens (Dad tip: try combining the best of both worlds by packing Dad and Mom Grass in the same bowl). It’s actually how we do our R&D. Just flower and a pipe. A bubbler if we’re feelin’ fancy. Now that our flower is a fam favorite, it’s become an excellent joint-alternative for both quick tokes on-the-go (we like one-hitters and homemade metal pipes for this) and long, contemplative smoke sessions (nothing beats a traditional Sherlock-style tobacco pipe).
Disclaimers: Our lawyer tells us to clearly state that we can not officially confirm (or deny) the pedigree of each pipe. The names, characters or events referenced above came to us second-hand. Just like the pieces themselves. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental. Or is it? Our lawyer also tells us that we should advise you to give your pipe a good scrubbing before you put some grass in and smoke it. Some are mint. Others are, shall we say, “well-cured.” Instead of stripping away the years of pot patina, we’re selling these treasures just as we found them.
