    A friend of mine is so impressed with me not smoking for 15 months that he said he could probably put e-cig supplies in his store. Without going into details here- it's not a done deal, I'd like to get an idea from other East TN vapors as to what you would like to see. Here's what I'm thinking (without going overboard):
    1. Some decent juice (AVE, Highbrow, Backwoods, etc.)
    2. Attys/Cartos
    3. Drip Tips
    4. Basic 510 kits...maybe some Ego or Riva kits
    5. Possibly some of the more popular AW high drain batteries and chargers.

    What do you think?
    Dream and post what you would like to see...be specific if you want.
    I want to keep a running tally and see where this goes and then propose to my friend what we NEED here in Knoxville-
    This isn't going to be like a Walgreen or Mall store if this materializes, I promise you!! My friend owns a fairly substantial store that anyone in Knoxville knows (and there are no tobacco products in his store)-- Enough said, I have to keep him and his store under wraps for now. He hasn't talked to his business partners yet....

    I can't wait- I just talked to my friend again earlier and he's very excited...even talked about a "vaping" room if this gets going and a sampling bar!!

    Dave that would be great to have a place to hang out with fellow vapers.

    I would come by all the time. It would be great to get my supplies locally.

    agreed. This would be awesome. There are times when I need a part or some more juice and overnighting sucks. I would be down for a local place, especially if they had trial flavors!

    There is a vendor in the Turkey Creek Public Market but they are only open Friday - Sunday. A place open everyday would be nice.

    Just an update- there are concerns by my friend's business partner about the FDA and profitability. We really need an enthusiast/vaper to be involved, but none are in that business right now. This could take a long time to get going (much more than I thought)... It may never happen in the location and by the establishment I have alluded to here. I'll keep you posted if there are positive signs of this moving forward.

    It's interesting. There is a smoke shop in West Town Mall that allowed me to try an ecig for the first time. He sells Premier and other cig-sized PVs and some high-priced nicquids, too. He's allowed me to talk him down on a 510 atty, once, because he knew that I knew his mark-up was exhorbitant. A guy's gotta stay in business, but not on my dime!

    Yeah, we need a place for juice, batteries, chargers, attys/cartos= basic stuff and some good stuff too!!
    Also, I imagined a vaping bar or place where we can go and hang as well as educated the public about vaping- this establishment I had mentioned earlier would have been perfect for that! The owner that is on my side wants me to sit down with his partner and hash things out. I have corresponded with her by email already and seems she has her mind made up- we'll see.
