What can one say other than this shop has the feel of the old days with great folks! You will find a great selection of cigars that are properly humidified.......never too moist or too dry! The pipe selection is very diverse and entertains the taste of every pipe smoker. From beginner pipes to more expensive and collectibles, this shop has it. And if you can, sit a spell and tell a lie or two. This shop has a liars bench that one must tell a qualifying lie and eventually you will get your name on a plaque above the liars bench! Now you tell me how many tobacco shops offer this kind of personalization! So come and relax and let the wife or significant other go shop. Located on beautiful Merrimon Ave. in Asheville, NC! What more could a cigar or pipe smoker want? Oh yeah, nice leather seating.........they have that too!
Stopped in today to visit with Joe Byrd, the owner, had a very enjoyable afternoon at the CSO Shop. Very laid back and well managed facility. Will visit again very soon. Outstanding selection of cigars, great atmosphere, and the owner is a class act individual. Great memory today and look forward to making more Charles Mays
Home away from home? Been a customer there for 15 years. No other tobacconist comes close. Best prices for a brick and mortar store.They are loyal to their customers. Highly recommend Carolina Home Blend. Sometimes I day dream of actually owning it.
