    Those are all old photos, a couple of the pieces I've sold, but most of it I've still got :D

    I'll have to do a big cleaning run soon and take a nice new family shot ;)

    Can't believe you're selling the LW tree bubbler.

    I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy

    I only have 4 pieces, 2 of them are broke. One by me, the other in shipping.

    How often do you guys switch pieces around?

    Oops. Just realized I posted these two in the wrong thread. Once I get my bubbler from Sam, that might put a crimp in my glass habit/addiction. Bad news on the work comp front, so unless SS comes through soon (which they have however long they want, I guess)... I'm not going to have any $$$ to buy anything. Though, I think I can get by for a while...

    (Advance warning, prepare for a wall o' text:lol:)

    That sounds like a collection to me :lol:
    [​IMG]
    I tend to have my "Current Daily Driver" (Well, sometimes that duty is shared between 2 pieces, 1 for at home, the other for taking to a friends place) which I tend to use for a week or so, then I switch it up.
    But I won't exclusively use that piece, it'll change depending on the vape in using (Dabs, LSV, Solo, Log Vape) and where I am (Sometimes I don't want to do downstairs to grab a piece, so I'll use one of the one's I've got upstairs)

    Having said that, I probably do 25-50% of my vaping at a friends place, so then it'll be whatever piece I take over there (again, I probably take the same piece each time for about a week or so, then switch to another).

    ---------
    Nice pics BDV, I'll have to grab myself a SSFG piece eventually.
    I'm thinking something like your inline bubbler could find it's way into my collection.
    I was thinking about getting one of their travel beakers, but I'd have to sell my RX industries and SYN Beakers first, as I hardly use them as it is :lol:
    Even then, I'd probably rather get it from fishbone since his space work makes me :drool:
    Rays work is sick, but it looks like his worked stuff is a bit pricey :shrug:
    You can still window shop ;)
    That's half of the fun of a BoroMarket Subscription, drooling over a piece you'll never be able to afford :lol:
    ----------
    Marcellus,
    Can't wait to see the updated family shot, You've picked up some nice pieces recently if I remember the Customized Vape Setups thread :)
    ----------
    WARNING
    ***this isn't the classifieds, so no talk of buying/selling here***
    Now that that's out of the way:lol:,
    I've been thinking about selling off some pieces of mine, but I'm having a really hard time deciding...
    There are some pieces that I just won't be selling
    • Mobius Matrix Bubbler (Pretty much my favourite piece of glassware)
    • DG Mini Can (Comes in a close 2nd, and it's a prototype, so it's quite unique :D)
    • Fishbone Space Hammer (Custom made for me [my 1st custom piece], and the work is sick)
    • EFS Gridded Donut (Cool perc, awesome sandblasting [my only piece with artistic sandblasting])
    And then there's the rest of my collection...

    There's the Luke Wilson 15-arm Dewaar bubbler, which is quite cool, but never sees use...

    The Luke Wilson 15-15 Arm Double bubbler, which also sees little use...

    There's my Mobius Reti Bubbler, which doesn't see too much use because of my Matrix bub.

    I quite like my K-nine Pug tube, it sees a decent amount of use between dabs and my solo/supeme, so it's got a pretty secure spot in the lineup. I also like it's construction, compared to the bubbler version, which looks a bit ugly to me...

    I never use my WeedStar Double Showerhead bub anymore, but it's got a pretty decent sized crack in it (it still functions fine), so it wouldn't really sell for too much...

    Then I've got the DG Fritter tube, another one I quite like, but it's a bit redundant considering I've got the mini can.

    There's the RX industries Beaker, which was one of my 1st purchases, and it actually had a part in shaping my Fishbone bub (I already had 3 different downstems for it, so I figured why not get the fishbone bub made to that height :)). Another one from the collection that doesn't see too much use.

    The SYN beaker is a really nice piece, but with all my fancy percs and whatnot in my other pieces, again, this one doesn't see too much use...

    I like my EHLE 100ml for traveling, but I could make do just as well with my aqua-vape in those situations... My 250ml EHLE stay's at my friends place for if they want to combust through some nicer glass than what they use normally.

    I'm about to trade my Hitman Turbine away, so I guess that one's sorted :lol: (I actually quite like the tube, but the turbine is a splashguard, and I'd rather have one where the turbine moves the water a bit more...)

    Then there's my Ash Catchers...
    I like how my SSV 6-arm pairs up with the SYN beaker, but as I said, the setup doesn't get busted out all too often.
    The Blaze 11 arm is similar, Nice, but doen't get used too much.

    And the Name Brand Showerhead A/C. It's my only "high quality" A/C, but since a majority of my pieces are 18mm (it's 14mm), it hasn't found a regular place in the lineup...

    So...
    If you guys had my collection, what would you sell off to make way for new pieces? :shrug:

    Of course if I have money, I'm going to want more. But, that day may not come given some realities of life. If I don't continue my collection, I think I still have a worthy one and certainly an enjoyable collection. Plus, there's some great sentimental value, that has a lot of positive energy flowing out of them. Good mojo! B)

    So this marks a point of where it may end. Shame... I think if that comes to pass. I shall miss the process of learning a piece and the whole review process. Its fun and I like to think I at least regurgitated some convincing sounding BS.

    So here they are! This is EVERYTHING!

    My collection of Domes/Dabbing items:
    [​IMG]
    From Left to right:
    • 18mm Clear Dome (IIRC it came with my K-Nine pug, but it might've come with my DG mini :shrug:)
    • 18mm Space Dome Custom made by Fishbone with Handworked Joint
    • 14mm Bionic Eye on Light Stardust Dome From BM (I should find that blower and keep track of them :lol:) with Handworked Joint
    • 14mm Male Clear Dome from Blissful Glass. A glass nail drops in and seals off the bottom hole, so it acts substantially similar to a normal dome.
    • 14mm Male Worked Birdhouse Dome. You heat the glass "ledge" and dab there.
    I love domes for their ability to show really sick work in a small package :D
