I do the same. I call it my "Odds and Sods Blend"My very frugal immigrant grandfather Costanzo Procaccini used to grind up and smoke all of the butts from his Parodi cigars in his pipe. While I won't do that, I do take all of the leftover bits that won't fill a bowl from tins and pouches and throw them together in a jar together. Sacrilege? Maybe. But that is what I'm smoking today.
Odds and ends. Bits and pieces. View attachment 363869
I feel your pain.Today, I wanted an English blend.
My local tobacconist has closed.
I stopped at three supposed shops, which turned out to be cigarettes, hookah, and vape crap.
At one shop I had to describe tinned pipe tobacco multiple times before the clerk understood what I was asking and then he said “Oh, like old school”.
I guess I’ll order online, but I really like a local place where I can spend less than $75.00 without having to pay for shipping.
