    Cool Looking for Stores in Houston (and a giving one recommendation)

    Anyone know of any good stores in the Houston area that sell e-juice? I have found one but I was wondering if anyone knew of any others.

    I love to vape and my wife though she likes the idea better than analogs she feels this is my crutch to quit all together. That was my intention when I started my journey 12 weeks ago. However now I donít think I want to quit vapeing. I like it - no scratch that; I love it! I am astounded and utterly impressed by all the available e-juice, pv accessories and mods that are available on-line. I am hesitant to order any of it because it all comes by mail. I work 10 hour days so that means that my wife gets the mail. I could order stuff on-ine but then I risk getting the evil eye and the mental battering ram when I get home.

    So for now this is what I have done. I did a search of the Houston area and found several sites that have E-Juice that I can drive to. I have visited a few only to leave being left vapor-less and dumbfounded. The prices were outrageous ($30.00 for 8ml! Really?!). Donít get me started on the lack of selection. It was just plain stupid. I did however find one place that showed promise because of the number of positive reviews; Smoke Dreamz. I went and was so impressed that I bought my pv there, moreover I got 2 more of my analog using friends to go there too. If anyone is keeping score thatís 3 new members to the Vapeing Community. I was so impressed by the knowledge of the Smoke Dreamz staff that I felt they deserved mentioning on the ECF for others who may have a similar situation to mine. After this paragraph is the review I left on the City Search web site for Smoke Dreamz so if you are not interested I would suggest you stop reading here. However, this family run business really treats their customers right and if you live in the Houston area I suggest you read what I posted and by all means go and visit!

    Peace, Love, and Vape

    ďFirst off let me give props to the staff! Marteen (apologies if my spelling of your name is incorrect), Jason, and Jasonís Father! I went here because of all the great reviews on citysearch (Smoke Dreamz - Houston, TX - Citysearch). I am so glad I did! The entry of the store is not like your average smoke shop. The environment is clean and bright. It was a pleasant change from all the other smoke shops I have entered. Other shops are dark and reclusive as if they are trying to hide something.
    My first visit was last Thursday to find accessories and e-Juice for my e-Cigarette. Marteen was the first to give me a hand and Jason was at the register. Both of these guys were on the ball with an answer to every question I had about e-Cigarettes and the various types on the market. I was quite impressed. I had bought a system at the mall (Fifty-One Duo in case youíre wondering) and wish I would have done my homework before hand. The system offered at the mall and ďtobacco barnĒ type stores is designed for one thing and one thing only; to take advantage of nicotine addiction. Smoke Dreamz and eGo type products are there for the consumer and their enjoyment of vapeing. I have been on my e-Cigarette for about 2 months now and I have learned quite a bit more about them on my own since then. Smoke Dreamz offers one of the higher end 510 e-Cigarette systems on the market, eGo. I told them that I was going to wait until my mall system died and I would buy an eGo then.
    As it set in my mind, the eGo and the service I received at Smoke Dreamz, I decided that I really did not want to wait until my mall system died. I wanted the best way to enjoy Vapeing now. So on Saturday I took a great friend who what curious of my new e-Cig as well as a heavy smoker and we both bought everything needed to start vapeing in an enjoyable setting. If you are considering an e-Cigarette try to go in and speak with Jasonís Father. Jasonís Father is also a user of the eGo system and has a wealth of knowledge that he is willing to share. I am glad I was able to meet him.
    Thank you so much for keeping the customers satisfaction at the center of you business Smoke Dreamz!Ē

    Even one brick and mortar shop is better than what many of us have - none unless prefilled cartos available at a truck stop count. Even with a shop near you, it may be much less expensive to order online. I do as I get 300 ml for 42.08 and it arrives 3-4 days after I order direct form China (since I like Dekang juice) I have yet to get an order stopped by customs (been at it a year). Still my vendor is banned here but i assume that is because people did not follow directions and use DHL rather than the postal service for orders containing juice. I have not had any problems with them.

    There are also some very reasonable US based suppliers (around 10.00 for 30 ml)

    ??????? Really???? When I went there the young dude trying to help me with the e juice didn't know ANYTHING about vaping. Didn't know if they were PG or VG and the stock was so disorganized I would have had to settle for a much higher nic level in the flavor I wanted. Then the older woman at the counter with gobs of lipstick on her teeth treated me like a child when she saw that I had a VOLT. She took it for a Smoke Everywhere and could not understand the difference. I know many many many people think the Ego is the only pv for them, but this woman thought all others were garbage.

    She didn't seem to know the difference between PG and VG either. She didn't know that cartomizers could be cleaned and re-used or the fact that you can use cartos on the same pv as you would an atty and cart. She also wouldn't let me finish a sentence to get my questions out of my mouth before she was assuming (wrongly) what I was trying to ask.



    Knowlege? Great customer service? I would have to disagree based on my experience there. I was treated as if they could care less if I ever came back.

    When did you go? I think there is a bit of change in their attitude. As for the pv, I bought the eGo from them because it was way better than what the mall rats sold me. I am also under the impression that you are an experienced Vapor'ure. Any advice you can offer would be wonderful.

    I see you are in The Woodlands. I work there.

    Peace, Love, and Vape

    Not really experienced vaper lol Only about 4 weeks in but I've been reading on here since the night before I started. Ya learn alot here

    I went to Smoke Dreamz last weekend. I guess I could see how so much could change in the amount of time I'm sure it was just different people on duty when I was there.

    I have always hated malls (I lose all sense of direction when indoors) so thankfully I never fell into the mall rat trap. I found my cheapo pv at the gas station!! lol

    I've upgraded to the Volt now but that cheap little thing will always hold a special place in my heart. It got me down from 1 1/2 PAD to one maybe two cigs a day.

    Have you ever been to The Woodlands mall? I think there's a hippie type store in there. I wonder if they sell juice?

    Old bump but I went into smoke dreamz a few weeks ago and lets just say their customer service is lacking.

    We started with the younger knowledgeable Guy until a young hot women walked in and he left us standing there talking to ourselves.

    Yes the prices were a little high but I was going to buy a new starter kit for my bro and some more liquid.

    Now over walks the lipstick on the teeth lady. This lady should not be in customer service. Hikes. Especially anything to do with ecigs. I asked her while she was standing in front of the eliquid is she had any "unflavored ejuice" she said sure they did and proceeded to try and sell me smokeless tobacco. Wth

    I will now use Houston Electronic Cigarettes-Alvin Ecigs.

    He is cool in my books has good liquid,good prices and great customer service.

    Houston's Largest Electronic Cigarette and e liquid Supplier

    this isn't really a store, but, you can pick stuff up in person. (at least, I was able to)

    there is a "smoke shop" in NW Houston, Jones and 1960 that sell e cigs,not sure if they sell juice or what their selection is like.... forgot the name.(I wouldn't recommend going there anyway) The e go was like $90, the same one that costs $40ish online.

    Alien Visions E Juice is in Katy(I think), they don't offer will call, but they might accommodate you.



    I'd recommend getting a PO box, if you don't want to deal with any negativity. I prefer(and recommend) buying from the more well known juice vendors online vs. the no names at brick and mortars. or learn to make your own.
