Default Craigslist find!

15 bucks. I paid 15 bucks for this gem. Got bored last night and started searching craigslist and among the overpriced flashy chinese junk i found this and immediately knew what it was from the tray mounting plate. Went to check it out and confirmed what it was from the designs and solder joints that were showing. An all brass stem with copper inner pipe handmade egyptian. Cleaned it nice and good and tested it out. Smokes like a champ! And its my first hookah without a common chamber and i love the purge! Gonna go get some brass polish and make it look really nice. Goes to show, there are good craigslist finds.

better than what our craigslist has to offer. The free Mya from H-S someone is selling for 125 bucks, saying the plastic base produces much better smoke production than a glass base. lol

Well not much better, i had to search for this one. It was hidden amongst the purple light up strobe light fall apart in 5 uses chinese pieces of crap. It had actually been up there for a few weeks. Why? Because it isnt flashy and not crappy anodized aluminum. And yes i do live in phoenix.

It's gorgeous. I have a solid brass pipe too
They feel really nice, I like yours a bit more because it's golden (mines nickel plated).
