Typically we are not interested in purchasing pipes that have cracked bowls, missing or broken stems, or previously smoked corn cobs.
Blue Room Briars will only evaluate pipes in person. Pictures are great, but it is necessary to inspect each piece in hand before any offer is made.
If you are interested in selling your pipes, smoked or unsmoked, for cash or trade credit, simply mail your pipes to:
Blue Room Briars
240 Links Dr. Marysville, OH 43040
Please include your name, address, phone number, and email address. We will never share this information with any third party, for any reason.
Once your pipes arrive we will contact you to let you know your pipes are in our possession. Then they will be carefully unpacked, inspected, and evaluated individually based on demand, condition, and dealer status. Most evaluations are completed within 48 hours however please allow 7 business days to receive an offer. Once we have determined the value of your collection you will be contacted with two offers, one for outright purchase the other for trade credit. Blue Room Briars’ estate pipe evaluations are extremely competitive in the industry.
We offer 40-55% for cash and 50%-70% for trade of our estimated MSRP minus the restoration and labor costs necessary to bring the pipe to market. Items affecting the pipe’s value include condition, collectability, original MSRP, and current market trends. Our evaluation experts have years of experience to make sure you get a fair value for your pipes. Offers are good for 48 hours after they are made.
If, for whatever reason, you do not wish to accept our offer, we will ship the pipes back to you, packed carefully, at our cost - just to say thank you for showing them to us!
