Cigar Store “Indian”

A vanishing part of the American landscape.  I noticed this Cigar Store “Indian” outside a Palo Alto Tobacconist.  Intrigued I entered the shop and had a very pleasant conversation with the proprietor.  I was astounded by the merchandise.   A pipe with a million dollar price tag, a lighter priced at forty thousand dollars and a single cigar offered at five thousand dollars.   The man behind the counter explained that the five thousand dollar cigar was only the most expensive he had in stock on that day.  He had sold others for twenty thousand a piece.  It boggles the imagination.
