    That last bit is supposed to say "discounts" but I got cut off. Basically, I handle a little business in my local area, selling glass pipes, water pipes, etc. at the local public markets, flea markets, and so forth. I figure it's time for me to branch out into the online sector. I can provide good merchandise at great prices and I figure I'll be one of the few who really focus on customer relations and all that. Most of the "true" online smoke shops are kinda meh from that perspective.

    Anyway, I've never really branded my little business, and I really need to before I branch out. I need a shop name, something to identify myself with by. I've gotten a lot of suggestions from friends and family, but I don't know if any are particularly suiting. If someone can help me out, I'm willing to offer discounts at the shop, maybe a little compensation, I dunno. It's not all that important, I'm just looking for some input :) anything you have would be helpful.

    Some examples of ideas given to me:
    Wacky Tobacky (play on the slang)
    Happy Little Pipes (Bob Ross reference I guess)
    Pipes 'n' Shit (Thanks 420ch)
    Brent's Pipes and Smoking Accessories (my name, pretty simple) or just Brent's Pipes

    I'm looking for something memorable but not corny. Brent's Pipes seems a little plain.

    What do you guys think? :) Any cool ideas?

    Thanks BHW!

    Thanks for the ideas everyone. How about this: if you suggest something different from the few I provided in the OP and I end up using it, I'll give you a 10% discount for life. (My markup is only slightly more than that, and my pieces come right from the blower, so you'd have a nice deal on your hands.)

    And to the poster above, I can't sell Cubans. I'm trying to keep everything above-board--it's a risky business when you venture into the online sector.

    I do have some awesome glass, though.

    I like Bigfoot and Yeti's Head Shop. One of you would have to be Bigfoot and the other Yeti. You could swap names during customer service threads, which could be very entertaining considering the clientele. Bigfoot could offer tips on North American product. Yeti could offer tips on stuff imported from the Himalayas and Far East. The logo could be very interesting. All good!

    I have to go to Bible study now :D
