Glass Art from Midwest Artisans

Glass Pipes – Featuring Midwest Artisans!

No Chinese glass shipped by the container load here! Almost all our glass pieces are picked by on-site from Midwest artisans who create unique, quality pieces at fair prices. And, if they’re not locally blown, you will find them clearly marked as imports.

You’ll recognize names like PKG, Little Ben, OMA Glass, John Curio and OSS Glass. Whether you’re new to glass smoking devices or are an experienced collector, you will appreciate our wide variety of artisans and the techniques, materials and technology they combine to make the perfect smoking apparatus for your needs.

But we’re not “glass snobs”, either! You’ll find a friendly, helpful and knowledgeable team member who will be happy to spend as much time with you as you need to make the right selection. And we stock a wide range of prices to ensure you get the best value for your dollar.

If it’s a hand pipe you’re looking for, you’ll find spoons, sherlocks, hammers and steamrollers, in every form, from the basic to the super fancy. For smaller smoking sessions, there are chillums, bats and tasters.

Rigs and water pipes of all sizes and shapes, featuring the latest perc designs, embellished with color, or simple in clear. For simple designs and economical grommet down stem designs, you’ll find the latest from Dark Star Glass. Or, choose from the superior lathe work by PKG and Studio V.

Upgrade your purchase with ash catchers, reclaimers, bowls, bangers and more. You’ll even find long lasting, quality American hand-blown quartz from Hoyes Quartz. Local made glass extractors, nectar collectors and tip, as well as dishes and dabbers complete the lineup.

The ultimate body cleansing solution

The food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the drugs we take & even some of the lifestyle choices we make…all contribute to the toxins our bodies continually must process and expel. There are times when it’s necessary to rid our bodies of those toxins quickly, even temporarily, and there are times when we want to clean them out for good. Regardless of your reasons or goals, we have the detox product for you.

The Detoxify brand offers one of the oldest, most well-known & reliable line of body cleanse products on the market. For immediate & temporary detoxifying, liquid Ready Clean, XXTra Clean & Mega Clean deliver results for all body weights & toxin levels.

Keeping the legacy alive. Groovy Goods is honored to continue what Daydreams started more than 20 years ago.

Groovy Goods is a new name on a store location that has a long and successful history of supporting the hippie lifestyle in central Iowa. And the connections go even deeper. The owners of Daydreams, Kathy and Jerry, and the owner of Groovy Goods, Elaine, enjoyed a close friendship for many years. Kathy and Elaine met at Iowa State University in 1977, and were BFFs for more than 39 years before Kathy passed unexpectedly in December 2016. Elaine and Jerry became friends when he and Kathy got together in the early 1990s, until his death in early 2015.

The first Groovy Goods in Texas was inspired by Elaine’s experiences while visiting Daydreams, and was founded under the tutelage of Kathy and Jerry. When Kathy passed away, leaving Daydreams without a future, Elaine couldn’t let the store die, too. Legal issues prevented her from keeping the Daydreams name and the next logical choice was to rebrand it as Groovy Goods.

The name has changed but the spirit of the store and everything it stands for has not. Kathy and Jerry’s dream lives on here, in the store and in you, the people of central Iowa, who made it all possible.
