Mike Fisher started up the Briar & the Burley in 1972, selling mostly pipes, pipe tobacco,and cigars. Over the years, the store has grown and evolved into what it is today, offering a wide variety of goods. High quality luggage, pipes, and cigars are big part of our business, but we also have motor sports/racing memorabilia, leather goods, fine pens and writing products, shaving equipment such as straight razors and soaps, and more. One of Mikes philosophies is "If I don't have, I can't sell it." While we have a focus on pipes and cigars, we offer a little bit of everything.
