    I've been searching for a LHS that would have quality and reasonable pricing? Seems unrealistic to find both in Miami but I'd be willing to drive 100 miles give or take, any help would be greatly appreciated :tup:

    No where in South Florida are you going to find very reasonable pricing, but if you're looking for quality check out Laughing Buddah in North Miami, Carbon Water Tech in Hollywood near the Hard Rock, or Cosmic Charlie's in Pembroke Lakes.

    All of them mark up their pieces but offer discounts if you can find bubbles in the glass, find a flyer online etc..

    Thanks for the reply,

    I've actually been to cosmic charlie's, seemed to have ok pricing on the generic stuff and crazy high pricing on anything that had any work to it. Laughing buddah had a shop down the street from me in westchester for a few months but again very high prices when compared to shopping online. I was looking at LSD gallery, think I might make the trip up today as it seems they have reasonable pricing anyone heard of them?

    I live here in So.FL NOTHING HERE best to go on line and purchase.I have found some mkts. on line and have saved tremendously on my glass.Found one piece at LHS and he wanted 90$ for it and found the same thing to my door for 25$. I wont buy from the the thieves in this state, head on over to the thread "cheap high quality bubb" Mainly import which is a lot of LHS inventory marked up showing you the % that most get. We on the the "cheap high quality bubb"thread are very happy eliminating the middle man, just passing on some info in case you were getting tired of getting the run around! go to Ioffer, ALI-EXPRESS,DH gate, there are some GREAT artists on this forum also ,one coming to mind is Jhan Pixel , the other Colie Glass , both great guys and artists with rock solid functioning art and very nicely priced.Most of the work these 2 men produce you could easily find marked up heavily in any designer studio.Nice stuff!! YMMV :cheers:

    I feel you the market down here is pure robbery. I was very pleased with lsdgallery although their inventory was low and they were expecting some new stuff this week the prices are extremely low. I'm going to keep my eye on them in the next week as they said some new slugworth dual recyclers are coming in and some Hamm brushland pieces. I did end up bringing this silika natural perc a/c home and love it.

    If you are looking for quality at a reasonable price then a LHS is probably not ideal. That being said I have been to a few head shops down here to see what they were about. IMO, Cosmic Charlie's is crap. Peace Pipe in Fort Lauderdale has a bigger and better selection.

    It took me about an hour and 20 minutes to drive out to them and I'll probably be back this upcoming week to check out the new stuff coming in, check out their Instagram they update it frequently @lsdgallery .

    I'm not sure if the grateful jays in boca is still open, but that place always had a good selection.
