Hi, my name is Jim and I'm a newbie. :)

Been smoking since July. About a month ago I (finally) picked up a cheap 50ct humi to replace my little sandwich-sized tupperware. Got a good deal on it at a local flea market. It's new, but they guy was selling them for less than I saw them for online.

Cigars are pretty cool -- how I got into my 40's without discovering this, I don't know.
I'm really enjoying this site.
Anyway, thought I'd share. I know it's nothing compared to some of the humidor rooms I've seen pics of, but I guess we all start somewhere....

Hey Jim.


That looks like a fine humidor. Now, you should probably start looking for a decent deal on a cooler. Probably the largest you have room for. :ss

Those Oliva mads look great - I may have to see if I can snag one or two of those after work.

Great score! As many have shared, you could quickly go down the slippery slope. Be careful and take the time to enjoy your smokes. Essentially smoke what you like and like what you smoke! Just my :2 worth.
