I went into my grandmother's garden

Melody -

I went into my grandmother's garden,
And there I found a farthing.
I went into my next door neighbour's;
There I bought a pipkin and a popkin,
A slipkin and a slopkin,
A nailboard, a sailboard,
And all for a farthing.

Said to be a riddle, of which the solution, somehow, is a tobacco pipe.
