Pipe Shows in US

Two shows were able to happen in 2021. Columbus in August, and Richmond in October. All the others were cancelled or postponed. Hopefully many of these can happen again in 2022. We'll try to keep this article current. Please add information if you have any, or send it to sethile.pipes@gmail.com, and we can add it for you.

2022 U.S. Shows

The 2022 pipe show season appears to be ramping up! Let's try our best to do this safely while having as much fun as possible.

Note: not a pipe show, but I received the following auction notice this morning and thought I'd post it here:

I'm reaching out on behalf of Selkirk Auctioneers and Appraisers located in Saint Louis. We have been in business since 1830! I wanted to communicate an upcoming auction we are holding this Wednesday, April 20, 2022. The auction is titled SMOKE: Tobacciana & Smoking Accoutrements and is linked HERE for you to view at your leisure! It is just under 200 lots of an assortment of items.

We received a very large collection of pipes, lighters and other Tobacciana products. We are interested in having this auction reach people who will appreciate these types of items!

If you would be interested in sharing this information with others, here is some more information about this auction!

It is being held live and virtual with live video at audio footage at 10:00 am Central Time, located at 555 Washington Avenue Suite 129 Saint Louis, MO 63101.

We have many different options when it comes to bidding to help accommodate people's needs so that you may still participate in the auction out and about!

Phone bidding - Provide us with the lot number(s) you would like to bid on and a good phone number to receive the call on and bid with one of our colleagues live during the auction! This is the closest option to in-person bidding.

Absentee bidding - Absentee bidding means you can call or email us ahead of time and leave a max bid on the lot(s) that you would like to bid on! This is a good option if you are not available during our live auction, but still wish to bid on items in the sale.

Internet bidding - Internet bidding is one of the most popular ways our clients bid, as we make sales and consign with people from all around the world. To internet bid, you can sign up and register through our website by clicking the link above and bid live on items that way! It's convenient and you can pretty much do it from anywhere! If you download our Selkirk app, you have the option to bid through that on your smart phone! On top of that, our App is super simple and straight forward, so it's easy to navigate and use!

If you have questions about any of the items in our upcoming sales, how to register, or anything else about our auction house, please feel to send me an email back here, info@selkirkauctions.com or call us at 314-696-9041.

13th Annual West Coast Pipe Show 2021 has sadly been canciled
Date: Usually the first weekend in November. The website currently states the following:
Attention!! Concerning the 2021, 13th Annual West Coast Pipe Show; This has been an extremely difficult decision for Marty and I both but we need to do what we think is best for everyone concerned. We are cancelling the show for this year. Flying across the country with a face mask on and worrying about who has been Vaxed and who hasn’t, is a real concern. We will not be part of the Vax police worrying about who has been Vaxed and if they have not been , they need to wear a mask. We also feel that there are too many unresolved issues for us to be confident that a show can be conducted without fear of changes in regulations and requests. Our show is about having a great time together and enjoying our great hobby. We do not want hard feelings at our show. I am getting dates for a show next year. I will put the dates on the web site as soon as I have them. The best to everyone, Steve and Marty
