Hippie Gypsy is LEGIT! – Hippie Gypsy is the best place in the world!
It may be expensive, but you've got to at least visit :)
I go in there all the time just look around!
Lots of things to touch, read, and smell.
They've got a ton of little things to look at :)
Wide selection of everything imaginable :)
I love Hippie Gypsy<3
Hippie Gypsy...Groovey – I'm a little old for this type of store but I went in because it had been so long since I'd seen a "head shop". I remember growing up in NJ and shops like this were everywhere. Leave it to Jersey to make them illegal...of course. I enjoyed looking at the vast selection of pipes (that certainly brought me back) and clothes. With the cool name they have, all that was missing was some blacklight posters, a lava lamp, some old albums. In-a-godda-da-vida baby lol.
It is a great place – I was at the shop in New Orleans LA and I thought it was a great place to visit. They have some really different bumper stickers and the purses/bags are fantastic. The shop manager was really cool along with all the employees. They seem very helpful and answered all of my questions. I am drug free, so I never bought any glass pipes or drug paraphenalia but they have a lot to choose from. I hope to visit the shop in Tempe, AZ on my way west. It would be great to see the other store. I wish them the best luck in their business adventure.
The store is cool... – The store itself is cool. The people that work there are real a$sholes. And everything is overpriced. If you arent looking to buy clothes or something like that Id go down the road to the graffiti headshop. Much better, cooler people and cheaper glasswear.
Overpriced Headwares – Hippie Gypsy is in a great location and has a terrific selection of clothing and headware. Unfortunately, their prices are as high as James Franco in Pineapple Express. I purchased a Vaporizer there only to find out it was 10% less on the web from the manufacturer and included some additional accessories. The herb grinder I looked at I found for $40 less on-line also (almost half the price).
If you are in hurry and don't mind paying the Hippie Ripme premium, they'll have what you need plus the staff is friendly and helpful.
Overpriced. Nice selections of glass, though. – Overpriced. Can't blame them, they are located on Mill right next to ASU. As far as the above review, you NOOB, of course you can't return pipes once they've left the store. C'mon. I have never been to a headshop that took returns on these types of items.
Horrible Hookah and shisha – Whatever you do do NOT buy a hookah or shisha from this place. The grommet (rubber seal) for the hookah smelled like it was made from recycled tire rubber. It affected the tastes of the hookah in the worst possible way. And the shisha itself was terrible (smoked some in a different hookah). No matter the flavor chosen it all looks and tastes the same. Bland and without character.
Do yourselves a favor and avoid wasting your money at this place.
Love it! – I have been going to the hippie gypsy shop on mill for a few years now and I still don't have anything bad to say about it. The staff is friendly. the store is clean, the merchandise is neatly organized, and it always smells nice. They have an awesome selection of pipes, bongs, and hookahs not to mention interesting clothing.
I highly, highly recommend this place.
Please judge for yourself – Please go to the Hippie Gypsy and judge for yourself. I have never had a bad experience in this shop. This is a classic head shop. It is very roomy and has a lot of product. Every salesperson is very helpful and ready to answer any questions! I am sorry Chasers had what he felt was a negative experience. Remember folks, we are only hearing one side of the story here. I have seen the "No returns" signs with my own eyes - but I already know there are no returns - that is common sense! Returning a glass pipe is a big nono because it can be cleaned up and look brand new - but it is not. Any glass product, when heated, changes physicall composition and weakens. If properly cleaned up you cannot visually tell the difference. If the shop were to accept a returned glass pipe and resell it they could potentially be selling damaged goods.
That being said, I LOVE this shop! Many unique and hard to find clothing items, memorabillia, and smoking apparatus. The fact that it is snugly nestled in the extremely fun Mill Ave doesnt hurt it one bit. Check it out!
DISHONEST GYPSY would be a more suitable name for the – I've shopped here for years. 4/5/08 we purchased a glass pipe. 4/6/08 we went back to EXCHANGE the unused, undamaged, pipe. The woman said "I apologize we don't do returns on pipes, it's just our policy."
I was very upset that we weren't informed of this "policy" before making the $50 purchase. Julia the woman working the register (that wasn't even helping me) yells, "there are signs all over that state no returns!" I asked Paige (the girl that was helping us) to show me the sign. I never saw it and neither did any of the people that I was with. Julia, then screamed..."You don't need to have attitude, I will kick your a$$ out of this store so fast!" I thought to myself, "are you kidding me right now!?
Paige showed me a very small sign taped to the back of the glass near a register that I did NOT check out at. I informed her that I merely wanted to do an EXCHANGE as we didn't notice the hole in the pipe was excessively large. Her response, "that would be dishonest."
Dishonest!? HA! She had the nerve to bring up dishonesty to me? Isn't selling a product and not informing the consumer that the product that they are about to purchase is a FINAL SALE dishonest? We weren't informed by the retail clerk, not on the receipt, and we certainly did NOT see the small sign that was nearest the register that wasn't even open!
Here is the topper-Paige says "I think that is the policy in every tobacco shop." This is the very first time I purchased a pipe and so how am I supposed to know or anyone else for that matter! Excuse me for being ignorant but I'm still an honest, paying customer that deserves to be treated like one! Hippie Gypsy has lost my business. You have a FINAL sale policy.....GREAT! BUT MAKE SURE YOUR CUSTOMERS KNOW THAT BEFORE THEY MAKE THEIR PURCHASE! That is all I ask!
We gave away our pipe as we have no desire to smoke out of it now. Too much negative energy. Good luck with your Hippie endevors but avoid this place! Peace.
