Pardon me for asking, what is a "HeadShop"?

It's a place to buy hippy paraphernalia (hippy being synonym for dope smoker)

I think a headshop is a heqadshop...not to be confused with any other type of shop. Vfunk is spot on.

If you can't find one...use a potatoe or an apple :)

Most tabacco kiosks sell lufkas which are like glass chillums. Apparently. My hippy dope smoking friends told me about. I had no idea what they were talking about but took their word for it. Is this what we are talking about? There is a green grocer down the road if you want to buy an apple

I believe a chillum is different....sth that goes between your fingers and sucked through your partially closed fist. I used to work in a headshop here in the US. Was called "stoned Pieces" . It was in Woodstock, NY, but I think it's closed down since I've moved.

I've searched online for all sorts of places.. no luck it's all internet based.. and I don't have a bank account here yet. I had my citizenship finalized a couple days ago.

I'm just looking for a typical headshop, they usually have all sorts of things ranging from tobacco pipes to shot glasses to shirts, just random junk. All I've found in person are the cigar stores you find in the big malls. Those are too formal to be carrying what I'm looking for.

Anyone have any idea where a store like this may be found?

Honestly, I don't think you'll find a "visible" head shop. Bet bet may be to go to a Piotr i Pawel and take a look in their tobacco area. You may need to get to know someone better to find out where you can buy a pipe. Good luck with that.

Haha unfortunately I left my car back in Washington state when I moved here a month ago :O For university.

I will be visiting there again some time, I just don't know by what means. Maybe train.
