There are dozens of head shops in Denver, all carrying roughly the same bongs, papers, pipes and one-hitters. But only one shop can lay claim to the most expensive and extensive glass collection in the state: Illuzion Glass Galleries. Even if you don't have the dough in your wallet to afford one, it's worth stopping in just to see the hand-blown, functional glass smokeware valued at $20,000 or more and made by some of the world's best glass artists, including Ryan "Buck" Harris. But not everything here is prohibitively pricey: The shop carries a wide range of affordable, colorful glass pieces that fit just about any budget, including pipes blown in-house by staff glass artists as well as visiting blowers. The shop also carries all of the papers and rolling accessories you could ever want, as well as pipe pouches and carrying cases to fit pipes of all shapes and sizes.
