    enough to be able to give you amazing deals when you have cash :) or to throw in free stuff (which probably was only free because the markup on your glass paid for it)

    Do you work on commission?
    Do they spiff the items that they want you to sell based on profit margin?
    Do you have the freedom to negotiate down to cost if necessary rather than lose a sale?

    I currently do.not make commission weve only been open 2.5 months i get paid well.. and nope obviously i want to sell the most expensive products but i wont bullshit you. . I can negotiate almost as much as i want i wouldnt go down to cost though i dont think. Once i have though to help out someone new to dabbing sold hom a rig at cost and then all the accessories at normal price still a great deal.

    Are you located in a Legal State ?
    and
    Have you ever shown/directed patrons to FC/youtube vids for sales? maybe you have a laptop lying around .
    also
    I'm guessing your boss is cool with you medicating at work ?

    I was referred to FC by a cool dude at a LHS... we were looking at the pretty glass, and muttering about not wanting to smoke our meds. He didn't say "fuck combustion".. he wrote it out on a piece of scratch paper, looking a little embarrassed.

    He's one of our favorite dudes there, of course. I've gotten a couple of pieces of glass, a few little pieces, and a glass pipe for when it is really needed (not very often). Oh, and my oil rig.

    The selection of vapes seems to be limited to flavor of the month portables, and a couple of dusty DBs and I think an SSV. Oh, they do carry W9 vapes, too. So, yeah, a few good options.

    I have no question... just stream of consciousness stuff today.

    What's working at a head shop like for a chicken?

    **Just assuming by your username that you are in fact, a chicken. Yes we've been down this road before. Just roll with it. :D

    Do you prefer (and remember) when educated folks come in and talk down your prices? Or do you prefer to have idiot college kids come through and drop money that's not theirs?

    Do you ever hear people talk about me? :ko:

    Are your standard glass adapters above, or below, my "average baseline" of $10? :p

    I suddenly feel like I'm on the old game show "what's my line?" ... only, it's more like "figure out which LHS I work at"

    LOL

    Gee whiz, I just seriously dated myself.

    Oh, hey, there you go. How freaked do you get when asked for a senior discount on glass? :D
    I always feel like we are so odd-ball when we go. No dreads, no... oh, take it back, my hubby does like to wear tie-dye, and he has a ponytail (and bald in front. so shoot me)... but, I'm just a dumpy, older woman. no tattoos.

    Yeah but we don't care about your nipples as informed as you are.


    Without making a pretty long outing for me I don't get to many headshops these days as all the shops around here just sell crap so pierced nipples are a plus
