I coundn't sleep at all last night due to dreaming of a name for my new retail shop. Any creative minds out there would be appreciated.


Here is what the store will be about. Basicly a Cigar shop Emporium. This will not be just any full blown cigar shop. It will have a Cigar Humidor display ( 4' wide X 6' tall ) to start out with but hopefully grow to a 10' x 20' humidor room. Cigar and pipe accessories, CBG's and other type of instruments, etc...old fashion candy counter, chess boards, poker chip sets, dart boards, crimage boards, dominoes, t-shirts, inlaid globes, collector knives, Sharpening equipment and services. e-smoke devices, Whiskey flasks, wine accessories, shot glasses, beer mugs and stines, wooden ships,  pool sticks, etc......Basicly things that flow in a home from back porch patio, bar room, billard room, poker room, home study library (den / office), living room, green room, etc.......


I need a short name that will relate all of what I will have without having Cigar or smoke in the name.

Something that makes people take notice in this slow economy.


Thank you for any suggestions.

Cigars, Knives and Beyond. Couldn't help myself, sounds like a cool shop to hang out in.
"Mancaves 'R' Us" :) I know you need a real name, but that's all I got!
The Smoker's Jacket
Everything Cigar
Humidor & More
Thanks guys, pretty good but still not the ones. Can't have cigar, smoke, knives in the name. I am looking for an all around name that will bring in men and women, and they remember what a cool store it was and remember the name because it is easy to remember. I thought of WTF Emporium but some may think I am open only on Wed, Thurs and Fridays, LOL.

I like anybody that has the nerve to open a new business in this economy.
The trick (other then location) and location is EVERYTHING! is to offer something the public CANNOT get anywhere else in your area.
And anything you can do so they can get it cheaper,is a plus too.
Right now because its our off season I'm offering a 10% discount if they pay cash,and I'm having customers actually leave and go down to the ATM and bring back cash to get that discount, its working beautifully.So far,,,,
Next month I'm thinking about having a sale where instead of a 10% discount ,offering instead to pay the tax for the customer.Our sales tax here in TENN, is 9.75% so its a good buy for the customer.My markup per piece is high enough that I can stand it as long as it keeps my sales VOLUME up.
