    Has any one found a place that sells vaping products in Maine. The only places i've found anything are at smoke/head shops. And all they carry are phoinex products. The juices are only available in 24mg nic, are way overpriced and gross. I was in a pickle and HAD to get some juice. All they had was strawberry and menthol left. Opted for the strawberry. It was beyond disgusting. I obviously get my juice over the internet through a domestic supplier, but it would be nice to know of somewhere to go in case of an emergency. With all the organic farming and such going on in Maine. You would think someone would set up shop and make and sell there own juice. All natural organic ejuice from Maine. They could slap one of those "get real get maine" stickers on it. LOL!!

    It's funny that you mention this because I am seriously considering opening up a Vapor Store here in Maine. I would like to have a store front as well as a online store too for others not near me.
    I wonder what the laws/by laws are in my town regarding a store selling this . I do NOT want to open a "smoke shop"

    I was kinda thinking a store with a lounge in it, coffee sold and you can vape all you want, with WIFI in the store

    Vermont Vapor is making just such a setup in Castleton, VT. Of course you'll want power/usb at each table for plugging in laptops and recharging ecig batteries! Perhaps even magazines and newspapers as a related sideline? I sure hope you live near me!

    This sounds amazing tabithad. There is a spot near me that is so perfect for this. It was a Italian style coffee shop. That recently closed down. Very cozy spot, brick and lots of wood exposed.I would really like a spot like this to open.Do you think there are enough people vaping in Maine for this?
    What area are you from?

    Well I am up in Northern Maine however I come from a big city in Canada so it's probably the "wishful thinker" in me for something like this to fly here in Maine...
    But my main focus was to have a store, were less internet savvy people or people who forgot to order their juice could run to. I think there are more smokers in this state that could be converted than in other states. And cause it's cheaper and a lot of people are on disability up where I live it just might catch on.
    I work in mental health and substance abuse and I was talking about this with my boss the other day, we might promote this in the community as a safer alternative as 80% of our clients smoke.

    well i have started seeing ecigs everywhere. they are at all the gas stations in town. I was out in brunswick the other day and went into Jenny's station.(a cigar, bacco shop) Back in January when i went in looking for a case to build a DIY PCC, the lady working there was very negative. She started to explain to me how these ecigs are actually far worse for you than real cigs. She said she would never carry them, especially since the FDA was about to completely ban them. I could tell from her harsh tone and red face there was no convincing her. However I walked in the other day to find an ecig display next to cash register. The owner said the distributor has to come back multiple times a week just to restock. LOL

    Tabitha its too bad you aren't closer to somewhere like Bangor, or Portland, or even Bar Harbor. Though I'd be willing ot make a stop over on my way to Nova Scotia if you put one in the Houlton area ;) I'll have to check out Ms. T, I'd love to get some local... how was the juice?

    I was not impressed with Mrs. Ts juice at all. I tested all the flavors i got and hated them. let them steep a week and they got worse. IMO they are way over flavored and too candy-ish. Really some of the worst juice ive gotten to date. I was surprised too because of all the great reviews. Its all personal preference i guess but i could not stand her juice. I still got samples if anyone wants them?

    I live in Brunswick, and there's nothing good here; couple of smoke shops that only sell prefilled carto's that are overpriced and very nasty. If somebody opened a shop/vaping lounge near here, I'd be there all the time!

    Jerry, the owner of Jenny Station, is a bit of a schnob, hangs out with them cigar-chomping schnobs, but he's alright for all that; unfortunately they only stock SmokeTip products, which I do not like; overpriced, their carto's taste horrible, and their batteries are poor quality & prone to failure; I hope he sees which way the wind is blowing, and stocks some better products.

    I make my own juice and want to get into selling it at some point, so far I only know of a few people on forums from around the country that I can send stuff to for feedback. I'd rather have some local friends to be honest, though I'll still send it to the good forum friends within the US. Let me know if any of you are interested in being guinea pigs! I'm in Bangor, by the way.
