The Melting Pot World Emporium & Smoke Shop on 1049 S Virginia St

Such an awesome store!!! Great variety of products from around the world. Perfect place to find a unique gift or to buy your necessities and or outfits for festivals (Burning Man is a given). Helpful staff, clean shop and inviting atmosphere . They also have a smoke shop in the back of store that has a great variety of glass pieces and accessories. Highly suggest taking a look at this place if you're in town. Prices vary and go a little steep on a few of the handmade/specialty and/or outsourced clothing items, but that's expected when they do the leg work to bring you that kind of variety. Overall affordable and abundant amazing shop with great products. Keep up the great work!!!!

The Melting Pot World Emporium is A-Okay. Be prepared for Sticker Shock when you walk through the doors of this Cosmic Adventure locally owned since it first opened in 1996, for The Melting Pot World Emporium balances the very expensive and expensive, reverent and obscene, the humble and divine, and the ephemeral and the everlasting. Where once its prices were in the affordable range, alas, no more. Just to first spend time browsing for a half-hour, I still buy my screens there for my water Bing I purchased there in 1997.

Quality selection. I came into the store expecting cheap rasta gear and fake Eastern-themed clothing. My mistake. I found a great selection of 'counterculture' clothing all appearing to be of decent quality. I bought two Mind Honey shirts. The prices were higher than expected, but seemed to be locally made, or decent quality. They have hats, pipes, kitschy keychains, incense, soap, Eastern/Indian items, costumes, bags. It'd be quite easy to find something for almost anybody in this store.

Had a wonderful experience, I wanted to try an herbal remedy that I had no experience with. The sakesgirl was very kind and helpful, very knowledgeable. I left with several selections that have been very good for me, plan on going back for more.
