Sometimes, it’s nice for a head shop to diversify. Of course, every customer wants to find what they are looking for, and smoke the way that they want to – but that doesn’t mean a head shop can’t offer some other unique products as well. One company that certainly understands this, and has for a while, is Penny Lane, which has been serving the central Illinois area for over 45 years.
The shop is in Springfield, and has been operating since 1971, which means it has decades of bringing delight to its customers. While it offers many of the traditional head shop products, it also offers a lot more, including patches, incense, body jewelry, statues, figurines, posters, and more!
They clearly have become more than just a store, and even are proud of the fact that they throw an annual concert in a nearby park to support the community. Since it’s been around for so long, the store – which calls itself “The Coolest Shop In America” – also has its share of stories, as well. For example, the family-owned business has had several celebrities stop by. In fact, there are even pictures of Harvey and Tommy Chong stopping by, and comedian Carrot Top left behind an autographed picture, as well.
The store fosters a sense of community, and even invites customers to bring a pen and leave their “mark” on the stairs, whether it’s a signature or artwork. Whether you are looking for a fun poster, T-shirt, candle, incense, or something else – there’s a really good chance that you will end up walking into Penny Lane Gifts with one product in mind, and end up leaving with a lot more!
