I just remembered there is not a SINGLE headshop for miles from my town(minimum hour drive). Got me to thinking about my own headshop again, and how much I'd like one. Turns out I'm still in college(yay) and they are sending me a fair sum of money again, as are a couple of my friends. It's not huge money by any means(its like 40k combined I think), and I doubt I could open a business for that little(I remember a few years back I think I calculated like a minimum 100k before you should even try). However I'm in a pondering mood and it got me to thinkin again, what does it take to start a headshop.
So I figured I would need to find a glass blower(unless you can find these online) or maybe there are places online I can buy large quantities of glass from?
And a question I pose unto you guys, what should a good head shop have. What should I carry in this mofo if I ever start it, obviously I'm gonna have bongs, pipes, hookahs and stuff but I mean like, should I carry juicy Js? Should I carry brand name bongs(Naples is a pretty rich town)? Let me know what you think
By the way, let me know if you think my town is even large enough to sustain a business like this. Naples population is about 22,000 people(census 2006). I'll count Golden Gate with Naples as it's not even a 5 min drive at 35mph between the two. Golden Gate's population is 21,000 but that's using a census from 2000(it has definetly grown). If I count Bonita Springs(which is like 10 miles away and is way closer to us than any other city) the population from there is about 32,000(census 2006). So I'd figure between the three(all within 10 mins of each other), there is a population of probably about 80,000 people here. You think a head shop can operate with this kind of population?
