Default Pimp Find on an Adventure

So a few friends and I were bored today as we had nothing to do.....SO we went to this thrift store....Mind you this was my first time ever being in a thrift store in my whole life...so I thought it was kinda peculiar at first....

Anyways...so I am poking around here and there and I come to find.....A HOOKAH!

This thing was in the candle holder area of the store....and long stem like things always look like hookahs to me for some reason....but yea I was like DUDE A HOOKAH!!!!

It was like $7, and I believe it was made in India....the age I am not sure...what do you all think?

i can understand that, however if you could clean it without ruining the orignal steel and not adding any flavor, remove the hose and smoke away!

Just give it a thorough cleaning and use your own personal hose or use a hose condom on that one to try it out. Either way that's awesome that you found that! I think I'm gonna look for some thrift stores in my town and check em out to see if I can find anything cool like you did. Nice score!

edit - John you beat me in my post hahah Jerk.

I had a similar experience about 16 or 17 years ago.Me and a friend walked into a antique store in Providence RI and came across a beautiful brass indian hookah for like $20.
Congrats!!Hookahs like this may not smoke that well, but for a collector/conosuer, they do look nice on a shelf!

Yea it looks like it has been used before. But I just dont see the use of using it. The hose and all the ports are so small that I don't thin kit will be very efficient.

Although....it does look pretty

looks cool but i agree with you. no point in smoking from it especially if you got a hookah business where you can always get yourself a very nice pipe for wholesale (im sure you already have enough as is :P )

That's a nice looking hookah. I would definitely keep that for decoration if I had a new house. I'm with you on not smoking it too. You never know what germs the hookah could have
