Briar Blues works strictly on commission.
We do not buy pipes from our clients or pipe carvers.
NOTE CHANGES NOW IN AFFECT
We will work with a select client base for pre owned pipes.
Many of these clients are well known in the pipe world and many
prefer to keep their collection "re arranging" private and low
We will also work with new and interesting pipe carvers.
We hope that as these pipe artists find a larger client base
they will no longer need our services.
What our clients say about us;
I've been doing business with Mike Glukler, "Briar Blues", to
any of you that don't already know, for a number of years now.
Mike has sold pipes for me, I've bought pipes from him and he's
counseled me a number of times about pipes I've seen on his site
that I was not quite sure about. I can't tell you how much money
he's saved me over the years, just by steering me away from
foolish purchases...it's sort of like getting to know your
tailor after many years, he knows what you like, and what looks
good on you, even when you want to soar like an eagle and fly
off into unknown regions, he gently reminds you about a certain
experience you had along similar lines some time ago, and like a
flash, you immediately are back on track.
Mike is extremely knowledgeable, completely honest, and has made
up for two or three I've dealt with that almost soured me from
dealing with pipe sellers again. His new commission rate is the
lowest around, and I can assure you that when others have only
had ebay as a recourse, Mike has a website that generates real
business and better prices.
If anyone ever wishes to speak with me prior to doing business
with Briar Blues, I can be reached at
firstname.lastname@example.org . I'll be happy to relay my experiences to you directly.
