Makers of such fine Cigars as Monitcristo, Romeo & Julietta & H Upman, Mike will be offering discounts on all his cigars. Gift packs with free lighters are a very popular stocking stuffer. Stop in and enjoy this pop up sales event!

Dec 19th Bob Jones from general cigar will be in the shop featuring holiday specials! 3 plus 1 deals on many General cigars or buy 8 general cigars and receive 10 plus a free humidor! That’s 20% off the cigars and a nice gift!
