I guess there's a new pipe auction site that's been unveiled.

http://www.briarbid.com/

Thoughts?

Cool

I like it. Listing prices seem a little high at the moment but I'm sure that's just to protect the seller because there isn't many registered users at the moment. Starting bid is the same as the buy it now price on a few items? Seems pretty silly to place a bid when that's the case, just buy the damn thing. Laughing

Oh, reputation wasn't a problem. Just the layout, features, inventory, etc. I think it's great!

I also agree prices for buy-it-now versus opening bids are a bit of an odd setup, but hey. Laughing

Cool

I know, I was just surprised, in a good way, to see Gregory Pease being one of the founders... that alone let me know that it will be a good place to shop for pipes.

I would imagine that being a temporary thing until traffic to the site increases.

Great. Now Greg's gonna show up at midnight at my place with his car running, door open, booze tempting, and a can of red paint and a paintbrush. *sigh*

I should have thought about that before registering with my real address. Razz

This site could get pretty big, I'm interested to see how it goes.

Cool

Looks like the site has better terms than ebay if you're a seller, but not as good if you're a buyer. I wish it had a tobacco section.

Kevin and GLP are a couple of heavy hitters, so I bet they did their homework before releasing this.
At the moment, I do prefer the trade/sell section of this and other boards, but time will tell.

I like that too. To me it's more fun to barter than it is to sell. But it will be fun to have another place to drool over pipe porn. Laughing

Hmmm ... we are only 1 day old, and still need to work on some things, like the FAQ, which should make things easier to understand.

Why http://www.briarbid.com/ is better -

1. Lower Fees & Simpler Fee Structure. (We have a minimum $1 listing fee to help keep out the junk.)

2. Made Solely for Pipe Collectors - Site Focuses Only on Pipes and related goods.

3. Created BY and FOR Pipe Smokers and Collectors - The site is owned by Trusted Members of the Pipe Community - Greg Pease & Kevin Godbee.

4. More than just a buying & selling platform, Briarbid.com is a Community of users, with a discussion forum integrated into the system.

5. BriarBid presents a more authentic, realistic auction environment. Auctions are run for a selected duration, but are automatically extended as long as there are active bidders, closing only when bidders are silent. No more sniping!

Bidders will only be able to see their own names on bids. Other bidders are anonymous until the auction is over, then all names are revealed. A Seller can see the names of all bidders at all times.

Please sign-up for an account too! http://www.briarbid.com/register.php

Thanks for the posting Kevin. Glad to see an honest site go up that we KNOW is going to be of service to the pipe community. I'll bet most of BoB will be joining.

What I am really excited about is that there will be no shills bidding up prices. That is my main complaint with ebay, they allow shills to run wild there.

Cool. No better time of year to release such an endeavor, too, Kevin. I've signed up and will keep an eye on the goings-on, see how people interact with the site. Hopefully there won't be too many kinks to work out. It's sure to be a hit--eBay frustrates more than a few people. Smile

An interesting site with plans to filter out some of the over-blown ebay crap. I started with ebay close to when they started, took a long break from them and the differences between then and now are annoying at least.

Apparently I'm among PayPal's (as a separate company) first customers, since early April, 2000 . Every time I call to them they say, "Wow, no one has even worked here that long..." (...not sure if they should say things like that...) but it helps when I have some issue with eBay (which I only joined in 2005).

eBay pisses me off in many ways, yet it's still the only thing.

Until now. I hope "boutique" bid sites happen all over the place. Cool

OK ... OK, I registered.

I already blew my smoking budget. But, like Jack said, at least I can ogle the pipe pron.

Unemployment sux.
