  • Great shop and environment! The staff was super personable and the owner Greg was extremely helpful. They have all sorts of things from glassware and jewelry, to cool posters and apparel.

    If you are in need of ANYTHING, come here. To start off, Greg was amazing. He was such good help, knew all of his material, and had a great store for all your necessary purchases. While I was here I went to two other places, but nothing beats High Hope. 100% recommend!

  • This place has it all. Some of the bongs they carry are top of the line. They have all types of smoking products for the canabis enthusiast. I highly recommend a visit while you enjoy a local resturant. This is one of the best head shops I have been to. I bought this bong for $160.

    I made an appointment to get my industrial done. Susie was super nice at the front desk when I went in and very positive and reassuring me it was going to be okay because I was nervous. Greg did an awesome job measuring my ear and picking the right bar for my ear size. He was quick and it was relatively painless and it looks freaking awesome. I've wanted this piercing done for more than 5 years and I'm so happy that I was able to get it done at High Hope because they did such a great job and they were so welcoming! I would definitely go again to get something else done in the future, and I will be very soon! Thank you so much Greg and Susie I am so beyond happy with my new industrial bar!!!

    I went in here on Valentine's Day to get my nose pierced, it was something I wanted to do for over 10 years. After reading all of the wonderful comments about Greg and his staff, I finally did it. He and everyone made me feel very comfortable and at ease. The place is clean and well maintained. I'm happy I made this my choice to have it done

  • I really enjoyed the service from stix n studs! I got two cartilage piercings today along with my friend. My other friends got seconds and a belly button piercing. All the services were amazing and Greg could not have been more helpful. I’m coming back for a 2 week checkup in 2 weeks. Thank you again! Highly recommend this place!!

  • My teenage daughters have been begging to have their nose pierced. I must say that I am so impressed by Greg's professionalism and attention to detail. He made sure that the location of the piercing was absolutely perfect. He took the time to thoroughly explain the piercing and most importantly the cleaning and healing process. Greg also noted to call if there are further questions and to stop in two weeks to have it looked at. My girls were over the moon happy! The piercings look amazing and they're already planning their next one. Thank you!

  • Getting my naval piercing for the second time had me a little anxious because of the scar tissue. Greg made the procedure comfortable and quick, and talked me through everything. If you’re getting a piercing, I recommend coming here! Great customer service and clean/safe conditions!

    I’ve gotten a few piercings from Greg at High Hope and each experience has been great. He’s always very thorough with his explanations of after care and provides his info for any follow up concerns. Thanks Greg for a pleasant piercing experience!
