The Great Northern Pipe Club will be holding their 2015 Pipe Show and Swap on Sunday April 12th 2015! I spoke with Tony "Mr Can" Soderman last night and he told me there will be smoking area conveniently located just off the show floor. Shocked

Hi Andy, Sorry about the hazy photo's, it was a no smoking show but I must have lost some glaze off my traditional show morning donuts.
It was a beautiful spring day in MN. I picked up my pipe club mates in Winona and followed the river north to St Paul. We arrived to find aprox 30 tables of pipes. Tony Soderman and The Rev Rolf had about 6 each of estates, tobacco and other pipe stuff.
Local carver Rich Lewis and Son George had a good selection of their pipes along with a some estates. Edwin pipes and Frank Storm had tables.
The food was good and conversation even better I had just paid my off my St Louis show haul
so I did buy anything other than raffle tickets. I won an a bunch of tobacco and a very interesting book by the late great duck hunter (and friend of Tony's) Jimmy Robinson. Tony Gifted me a bunch of large and small Castello shopping bags that he acquired in a deal. I've always wanted them but have never bought enough from Marco to earn one and those made my day!!  
I counted about 60 heads at one time but guys where coming and going all day. Shocked

WOW,
That looks like it was a spectacular day, Thanks for the photos and review of the show/sale. Tony Soderman has enough stock to hold his own show!! lol
You have some great collectors up your way and Rich Lewis is an amazing pipemaker.
Glad spring finally arrived for you as it has here in Maine/Massachusetts.
I see a Charatan in Tony's case that I'll have to give a close look at when in Chicago shortly. Very Happy
Be well, see you in a few weeks.
