MANCRAFT: Des Moines Market Day Event


by Danny Vasquez

Just a quick note to say thank you to all who visited our booth at last week’s MANCRAFT event. We had some new pipes available for the event as well as leather goods and beard oil. It was a fun event and good to see some old faces as well as meet a few new ones.


As always, our Bird & Bear Beard Oil was our big seller. If you haven’t given it a try, I highly recommend you do. It’s great for guys with beards of any length as well as guys who use it as a pre-shave oil. It promotes healthy skin and hair and makes you smell manly. Trust me, your lady will thank you.

I still have 2 pipes available for purchase.

A beautiful, featherweight Liverpool (17 grams) and a pocket-sized Devil Anse. Both are awesome pipes, so if you haven’t signed up on my Pipe Subscription List, sign up here. DSC_0253DSC_0252

At MANCRAFT my booth was next to Fontenelle Supply Co. (who I had been following on Instagram for some time now). It was great to finally meet them and see their leather goods and axes in person. Beautiful work. FYI, we will be doing a Artisan Spotlight blog post about them in the near future, so be sure to subscribe to the blog. In the meantime, check out their stuff here.

I enjoyed a bowl of Blue Ribbon from my favorite Tobacconist, Jon David Cole at The Country Squire. It’s a great summertime smoke.pipe break MANCRAFT

Our next event is this Saturday. Our Bird & Bear Gentlemen’s Night No. 8

Be sure to join us for a great night of fellowship. As always, all the details are on the website.

God Bless.
