Ariel is a Glass Hound

HIGH everyone! Ariel here.  This morning I woke up with a 'halfbaked' idea! Every day as I get ready for work, and take one last longing glance at my glass.  I wish I could bring all of my favorite pieces to share with all the amazing people I see walk through our doors at Smokin Js. I wish I could create moments with so many! Since I can't physically accomplish this, I figured I could at least semi accomplish my mission by pulling out all the pieces I could find and taking most of my morning to have a 'red carpet photoshoot' in the sun for all of my current glass lovelies, so I can at least share and talk about them with you.
Some of these pieces I bought way before I even started working for Smokin Js.  American made glass, all you'll find at Smokin Js, has stood its test against time, and with a little TLC, I've had my favorite dry pipe for roughly 5 years now :) . . . and yes that is a sand blasted hammer head shark, and sea turtles!

My rainbow side car bubbler has been with me for longer then I can remember! SmokinJ's is like the pot (of gold?) at the end of the rainbow ;) Always treasures to be found!

I don't even have words MONUMENTAL enough for how this 3ft ADS TOWERS over all other water pipes in my heart, thanks Tmo for helping convince me I needed her (not that it was very difficult), you always guide me to pieces I love!  When I found the rainbow dot-box bowl, I knew it was a match made in heaven.
Careful or your eyes might pop right out! When you see my Dragon bubbler next to our new eyeball sherlocks, I'm not sure if its my heart or my eyeball that's melting at the sight of these ;)
A picture I'll save for a smile on even the cloudiest day, Blaze1 Gloria bubbler to the left of my gandolf sherlock (which has been wrapped with copper wire and stones, I've gladly purchased 2 of those in the years), and my new Synthesis fummed hammer that's been colored in (we've got them in pipes & sherlocks as well)

I could go on showing close ups for a while yet (I really do stare at glass for hours guys, I mean I don't even get enough at work apparently), but I'll wrap it up with a stunning piece of art made by KMack I just purchased yesterday, with help from Jay for always knowing where to look, Alex who sent a picture to me as soon as it came in, Tmo who pointed it out when it hit the shelf with 'my name on it', and Nichole who sold it to me as soon as I had cash in hand.  Honestly its like here at Smokin Js we are a group of treasure hunters who can't rest as long as there's still beauties to be seen! We go from hunting and searching for customers, to hunting for each other, and of course last but not least
ourselves ;)
Thanks to you all for the love, honesty, friends, family, and all the memories we build around quality glass!

& as always, Thanks Smokin Js!

Here comes the sun! Time for shorts, tank tops, and the outdoors. You might think you're ready, but there's a few things that you cannot live without this spring/summer season, and Smokin Js has you covered.

Toss your flops and grab a pair of our Nomadic Rope Sandals. Hand-crafted with 100% polypropylene rope, these lightweight sandals will not only be your most comfortable, but your most durable footwear yet! They're color-fast, machine washable, and they come in an assortment of colors and styles for kids, adults, men, and women alike.

Don't go anywhere without a Dime Bag. They come in a variety of styles from pipe pouches to waterpipe duffles, and backpacks to side satchels. Hand stitched with a hemp/polyester mix, these Eco-friendly bags are incredibly durable. Each bag has multiple pockets for the organized traveler and a secret pocket containing a smell and spill proof bag for your discretion. Day trip, hike, or camping, there's a bag for every occasion!

Shade your head with one of our street inspired stash pocket hats from No Bad Ideas. Yes, I said stash pocket. It takes a close eye, but each one has a secret pocket for money, ID, notes, or well, your "stash". Snapbacks, baseball, legion, driver, flat bills, tams, knits, and special female styles... Whatever your pretty little head desires. Especially great for concerts and festivals.

For the smoker on the go, you can be inconspicuous with our Click-n-Hit self lighting pipe. It's so small it can fit right in your pocket and since it looks like an oversized pen, no one will think anything of it. Simply fill it up with your favorite herb, screw back together, click and hit. Life can't get much easier than that. Just be sure to fill the torch lighter with quality butane (we recommend Vector).

Check, check, check, check... OK, NOW you are ready! Here at Smokin Js we try to have something for everyone and every occasion. Be sure to keep us in mind for all of your smoking and alternative fashion needs. We've got you covered.
Smokin Js Fashion Department has Women's Tops, dresses, footwear, t-shirts, bajas, tie dye, and bags
