It appears our shop phone number is being spoofed for scam calls.
It's not us.
You didn't win an all-inclusive stay at a resort. We know nothing about your student loan debt. We're not trying to get you to sign up for a healthcare package.

We are a v**e shop. We want you to come in, buy some e-liquid and a pack of coils. Need a new setup because you hit the sauce a little too hard on NYE and lost your mod or broke it? We have some.
We're fresh out of extended warranties for your car, though. Sorry.

It's on a hope and a prayer that the right customer sees this...
But, there was a female customer that was just in here at roughly 5:15 pm today and purchased a bottle of Heritage Strawberry Fluff and a bottle of Rappin' Razz. Both of which were supposed to be in a 3mg. I believe I may have handed you a 6mg in the Rappin' Razz.
If you see this...please come back and see me, I'll make it right for you.

Vent session:
Maybe I should post this, maybe I shouldn't. To some, this might seem unprofessional, but we've always kept it real with all of you. I don't see a reason not to talk about the current state of things.

Hardware was:
-Relatively easy to get and competitively priced 12 months ago
-Had some shipping restraints and prices rose a buck or two 6 months ago
-Availability...we'd have better luck buying 10 PS5s than we currently have trying to find some products these days and what is in stock with some of our vendors is so astronomically priced that we can't justify bringing it in.

I'll give you an example. The basic fundamentals behind keystoning wholesale goods is doubling the wholesale price to cover the cost of replacing said product and to cover business overhead.
There was one kit I was looking at ordering a couple of weeks ago.
Solid brand. We know they make solid devices.
This particular kit was a newer model of something they've already manufactured that sold really well for us.
We sold the last version for around $80. This version we'd have to sell for a minimum of $116 (at last check from one of our vendors) to make it a remotely viable option for us to bring in.
The difference between the two models? The newer one has a slightly bigger tank and coil. Both are small single-battery 100w mods. Personally, I'd never pay $116 for that setup and I can't justify asking you to do that, either. What's even crazier is that their dual-battery 200w version is the same exact price.
Kit and coil prices have drastically gone up over the last year and availability is almost nonexistent more often than not. One particular pack of coils we order has risen $3.50 per pack over the last year.

Shipping times? We have a couple of hardware vendors in the Louisville area that we order from regularly. In the past, if an order from them took 5 days to arrive, that was a long time. There were times where we'd get the orders the very next day.
I placed a hardware order November 19th. It arrived today.
I'm half in mind to just consolidate our Louisville orders from all of our vendors there and make the two-hour drive there every two weeks or once a month. At least that way we can order what we need right then and have it on the shelves the same day.

Shipping charges? To put it in perspective, we were quoted $150 to ship $450 worth of coils recently.

If you've been on this page a while, you already know the e-liquid woes, so I won't dive into that.

We've held off raising prices, but we're not going to have a choice but to do so if things keep going the way they're going - which I don't see an end in sight at the moment...

GOOD MORNING!
Just wanted to jump on here and give you another update.

Before I continue, I want to make it clear that I'm not at all trashing or bad-mouthing the company (I'm not directly naming the company) we ordered from. They've been great to us and we will still do business with them as they have a lot of different products.

However, with that said, we are trying out a new vendor, whose products I have personally used in the past, for Delta 8 cartridges.
We're more than likely going to be purchasing their D8 disposables, as well, in the future.

The last few batches of disposables we ordered, roughly half of them failed in one way or another. Again, I'm not blaming the company directly as they didn't actually manufacture the hardware (that was done by a third party). While the company was more than gracious enough to literally overnight replacements for us when we notified them of failed products, it was frustrating on both your end and our end. Some of you purchased them just to get home and realize they didn't work. I apologize for that.

This new company sent us a few tester disposables along with our full order of D8 cartridges from them. Immediate impressions are promising - they're rechargeable, have a side window so you can see the level of the product inside, clean packaging and...let's just say it hits great. I'll leave it at that. :)

Chances are mighty high (no pun intended) that we'll be bringing in those disposables.

We received word that House Blend is FINALLY ready to be reordered. We'll be working on getting that back in the very near future.

We've got a couple of orders out that we're still waiting to be delivered. Bear with us.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.

-Justin

11/24/2021

We will be open Thanksgiving day from 10a-4p.

11/17/2021

To revisit the PMTA conversation:
Things are once again changing. In a manner of transparency, I wanted to hit you all with this update. I'm throwing a lot at you, so grab your favorite beverage, get comfy and read on.

We're still getting questions about Moon Mountain e-liquid (V***r Trails, Venus, Buzzberry, etc.): They stopped manufacturing about two years back, if not before that. We can't order it.

Twist E-liquids: Due to regulations at this time, Twist is only available to international markets - not the US. We can't help this.

Naked 100: If interest picks back up for this line, we'll bring it back in. As of right now, we've had maybe two people this past year asking for it. We don't want to tie up funds in bottles that are just going to sit and collect dust.

Barista Brew: Our distro for this is currently relocating. We should be able to reorder in the beginning of December. We have brought in The Grind's "Karma" as a fantastic alternative in the mean time - it's a fantastic caramel coffee flavor.

Ends Game: As Ends Game transitioned to TFN (see previous posts about that), some flavors fell off. Namely Apple Cake.

Ruthless: As Ruthless transitioned to TFN, some flavors fell off. Slurricane being one of them. TJ is in mourning over the loss of Slurricane.

Sorbet Pop: We're working on getting that back in. Please stop cutting our tires and busting out our car windows (kidding, that's not happening). Ordering heavier than usual on Tangerine Lime and we're going to test drive Sorbet Pop's Pineapple Kiwi Dragonfruit.

With the few lines that are disappearing, we're moving to bring in a replacement. This round of ordering, we're going to be bringing in Prohibition. If there's anything from Prohibition that you've set your eyes on, please let me know by tomorrow (11/18). I'm currently waiting on our wholesale application to be approved through them. Speakeasy is coming in. Anything else you want?

-----------------------

Other changes and stuff worth noting:

We're going to "thin the herd," so to speak. If we already have one type of flavor, we're not going to reorder it in another line. For example, we currently have about 5 different straight grape flavors.
Ruthless Grape Drank will be taking the lead moving forward. This means Grape Jolly, the Grapest, Noms Grape and V***r Lock's Purple (grape), will be going away as those products sell out.

This might upset a few people, and for that we apologize.
Now, with that said, if enough people come in with their pitchforks angry that we dropped any given flavor (that wasn't due to regulations), we'll see what we can do to bring that back in.

But, I'd rather use that money that we're dumping into, say, five different grape flavors and order enough of one to actually have some backstock - instead of ordering 4-6 bottles of each one, order 20+ of the one, that kind of thing. That way we're not scrambling trying to reorder whatever each week and you're not mad if it's sold out for a week or two.

Questions, comments, suggestions, your grandma's chili recipe...hit the comments and let's talk.

I'll be gone all of next week. Take care of Mike and Charlie, would ya?!

-Justin

PS: We love you.

A general rule of thumb I like to use when it comes to v**e shops: If you cannot walk into a liquor store, you cannot walk in here.
This poor dead horse...I just keep beating it...
You have to be 21 or older.

Had a young guy come in yesterday that turns 21 tomorrow that got absolutely pi**ed that we wouldn't sell to him. I mean, he legit copped an attitude when we told him he had to leave.

With all due respect, we close at 8 pm.
I don't care if it's 7:59 pm and your birthday is tomorrow. The answer is still no. We open at 9 am. Come back and see us then.

I don't think he appreciated it when I wished him a happy birthday as he was leaving, though...

11/09/2021

Alright guys. We seem to be back up and running and can take card payments and calls again.
We're going to ask that you tip-toe through the door, though.
The internet here gets frightened easily and will run and hide for hours.

11/09/2021

Guys I apologize, but our shop is offline this morning. Xfinity is always going down here at the shop and it’s frustrating. This means our phones are down, too.
We’re currently not able to process card payments.
We’re running cash-only until Xfinity can get it together today.
I attempted to call support just for the automated system to inform me that it’s going to be a three-hour wait or longer before my call is taken.

Side note: MetroNet Fiber/MetroNet Indy Authorized Partner, if you EVER go live in 46239, we’ll cancel our Xfinity contract that day and bring you in here.

11/07/2021

Hey all. Just real quick.
I've seen an uptick of people coming in stating that they were "looking at the products on our website."
While we do have a website, it's literally a single page with location information. I've got a few ideas on what to do with the site itself, but I just haven't put them into place yet.
If you're one of the fine folks that has said that in recent history, can you do me a solid and post in the comments what website you were looking at? I'm just honestly curious as to what website is getting confused with our store/site.
Also, when I was working on all the Google stuff last week, I noticed a couple of online digital gift card retailers selling V***r Vice gift cards.
We did not authorize this, we've never done business with ANY gift card company, nor will we accept gift cards (we're simply not set up to do so). Please do not purchase a gift card from a third-party vendor. They are not being sold on our behalf.

11/04/2021

Okay. I'm going through trying to clean up our "Google My Business / Google Small Business" page (to optimize search results and whatnot) and, for whatever reason, they're not only NOT accepting the changes, but somehow options, descriptions and classifications are changing to other options that we're not selecting. So, here's a recap description if you happen to find our page from Google and need ACCURATE information:

The V***r Vice, by percentage majority, IS woman-owned - Google doesn't want to accept that information.
The V***r Vice is NOT CURRENTLY (as of the date of this post) requiring anyone to wear masks. Google will not accept that, either - after four attempted updates, our profile on Google still states "masks required" and that is false. Nor are we requiring temperature checks. I've had to revert that option a couple of times now.
The V***r Vice has been, and will always be, LGBTQ+ friendly. Google keeps unchecking that box for us, as well.
We love anyone and everyone that walks through our door and will treat you with the utmost respect regardless of your skin color, financial status, religious affiliation, sexual preference or gender choice. We hope you know that by now, but if you don't, there ya' go. It's sad that Google thinks otherwise about us.
The V***r Vice is NOT "cash-only" AND we accept all major card forms of payment (Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express) and all NFC/tap-to-pay payments. I logged in this morning to see if they finally accepted our changes to see that we were listed as "not cash-only" but not allowing any other forms of payment...like...what?!

But they've got our store hours correct, so we've got that going for us, which is nice.
