Home Trades, Passes and Bombs

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hey guys and gals ........ my cousin is working on a 50th birthday gift for my other cousin whom i smoke with reguarly ..... she has already purchased an old end table that needs to be refinished, if i remember it was purchased at an estate sale for 75.00 and she is going to sand and do all the minor stuff and she a friend who does amazing refinishing work ........ so the plan is to make something very rare and unique, the table will be finished and all cigar bands will be placed on the top of the table and preserved and finished ...... i know the table refinished alone would fetch a handsome reward but this is to be an heirloom to get passed down ...... what i'd like to do if anyone's willing to help, i need to collect cigar bands that are removed intact sill banded ...... they can be folded flat and mailed via usps normal mail ........ iam trying to figure a reward system ......... maybe for every 15 labels you get a cigar ....... not a ridicuously cheap stick but not an obnoxiously expensive stick ...... i this is something that anyones willing to help out with i'd be very apprecative....... just message here and i can release info via PM.......... thanks guys for any help

    I have about 60 bands I have been collecting. They are all unrolled and most of them are in pretty good shape. I am def. willing to to send you all of them if you want them. let me know. Oh, I had a similar idea not too long ago but I don't know anyone that can do that kind of work. make sure you put up a photo or two when its done so we can all enjoy it!

    I keep everyone last one that I smoke... Don't know why, but it's a sentimental thing
  • Ok dumb question, when you say still banded, you mean still the circle?

    I usually just unroll them, let me know i'll start saving.

    We can meet in delafield you can buy me a stick and a beer!  LOL

    Same here. I started about 2 months ago, just saving every one. Maybe I knew they would come in handy...?

    I know I'm a little late on this, but I keep all my cigar bands as well. The only thing is that none of them are still glued in the circle. Can you use them this way? If so, let me know and I will throw a bunch in the pack I'm sending you on Monday.
