     As with the repairs I do on estate pipes I sell, I take the utmost care in rejuvenating and restoring your pipe back to as close to 
original condition as possible.  Sometimes however defects in a pipe only appear during the restoration process.  

     Due to this, combined with the sensitive nature of pipe materials, all responsibility is with the owner for any damage done to 
a pipe during the repair process.  In the event that any undisclosed breakage or cracks are discovered, the repair will be stopped
 and the owner contacted on how to proceed with the requested repairs.

     All pipes mailed back to you will include insurance.  It is strongly recommended that when mailing a pipe for repair or 
rejuvenation that insurance coverage is purchased for your courier of choice.  Stem and Briar LLC. will not be held responsible 
for any lost package or damage to any contents by the shipping company coming to or returning from my shop.

For estimation purposes a USPS Small Flat rate box is approximately $7.50 insured within the United States, and $16.95 Internationally.  
On average, this sized box can hold up to 3 pipes depending on their size and shape.

Stem and Briar LLC is does not have a traditional storefront, and nearly all our business is conducted online and via mail shipments. 
I would however be happy to assist you locally by appointment both for purchasing pipes, or pipe repairs.

Thank-you for your interest!
