Why “progressive”? We started Stoked because we saw the need for something entirely different in the world of smoke shops. We wanted our customers to actually be stoked about coming to our shop, hanging out with us, learning about products and artists from an knowledgable staff, and leaving the store stoked about the experience.
We’re in a great space in the historic Black Rock section of Bridgeport. It was an old bait and tackle shop before we gutted it, put in new cement floors, great lighting and filled the room with glass display cases to showcase the work of the best artists in the industry.
Our buyers travel the country to meet our artists directly and establish a connection which allows us to bring some of their most unique work right back to our customers. Many of these artists have made appearances at our store events, giving demonstrations and offering one-of-a-kind pieces created that day.
In addition to thousands of hand blown glass pieces, we have an extensive vape shop that features a full menu of juices curated by our own vapologists as well as all the devices you’ll ever need for enjoying them.
Come visit our store …. we’re sure you’ll be as stoked to be there as we are to have you.
Charlie loves engaging people and taking them on great adventures. Whether it was waist deep powder backcountry runs in Montana through college or creating top-notch culinary experiences in Manhattan and Connecticut as a career – if there’s a group of very Stoked people anywhere, you’re likely to find Charlie in the middle of them.
Zac has been a proud resident of the Black Rock section of Bridgeport since he flew the coop in the early 2000’s, right around the same time he started collecting glass. Now that he has an outlet to provide support to his community he prides himself on customer service. Making people happy is his #1 priority. When he’s not providing great products and knowledge to his customers you can probably find him on a fishing boat deep in the Atlantic where he feels most at home.
