I know that many people buy their supplies online. And I do too, usually. But I live near a few really major metropolitan areas, not to mention two separate college towns. I'm certain that there are local shops selling supplies. Trouble is, I'm really unsure what kind of shops to look in. There's obviously tobacco shops, but they seem to stock the kitchy over-priced underperforming brands. Plus, so far I've had more luck with eclectic shops.
I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas of what kinds of stores to look for that might sell this stuff?
