tQuestion & Answer Interview
Bongs vs. bowls: Hash Bash Saturday will make smoke

0

The Michigan Daily Weekend, etc.

By Elizabeth Pensler
Weekend etc., editor

A flood of people will be pouring
onto this campus on Saturday for Hash
Bash. This event, which supports light-
ing up and having a good time will also
bring business for local Ann Arbor
shops. Shiva Moon, a shop on the cor-

ner of Maynard and East Williams
streets, which specializes in psychedel-
ic garb and acessories caters to Hash
Bashers. The Michigan Daily asked the
owner of Shiva Moon, 21-year-old
Tanya Hosking for her take on the
upcoming smoke-filled shenanigans of
Saturday.
The Michigan Daily: How long have

you been in Ann Arbor?
Tanya Hosking: The store has been
here five years and this is our one year
anniversery for Hash Bash.
TMD: How did you decide to open
up your business?
TH: My brother started it five years
ago when he was 25 and I was 16. It
was something we both wanted to do.

TMD: Do you do a lot of business
during Hash Bash?
TH: Hash Bash is a big day for us.
We do more business on Hash Bash
than the entire month of Christmas.
TMD: Do you sell more bongs or
bowls?
TH: We sell more bowls than bongs,
but the glass hand pipes are also very

popular.
TMD: Do you ever have to show cus-
tomers how to use the equipment?
TH: Sometimes. It's usually the bong
that needs explaining.
TMD: What's the most expensive
piece in the store?
TH: A $550 dichroic bubbler, which
is a hand held water pipe.
TMD: Where do most of your pipes
come from?
TH: The glass pieces come out of
Ann Arbor from local artists.
TMD: There are other "head shops"
like this one in Ann Arbor, how is your
store different?
TH: This is a family-run business.
We try to make our customers feel com-
fortable with our fun, laid back atmos-
phere. We make a big effort to get to
know our customers.
TMD: What advice would you give
to other people who want to start a busi-
ness?
TH: It's important to find your niche
and find some sort of flow.
TMD: Are your customers mostly
college students?
TH: We get a huge variety of cus-
tomers. We get a good amount of col-
lege students and older people. There
are younger people who come in here to
buy the clothes, tapestries and incense.
TMD: What other kinds of merchan-
dise do you carry in your store besides
the bongs and bowls?
TH: We carry tapestries from the
company Space Tribe. They glow in
black light. Also, people come to the
store for the music - psychedelic
trance. My brother owns his own music
company called Spun Records, which
features this kind of music. Its newer to
this area and people don't really know
about it.
TMD: What time are you going to be
open on Saturday?
TH: I'll get to the store around 7:30
am and stay open until the streets are
empty.
TMD: What's your advice on how to
have a good Hash Bash?
TH: Everybody should keep a smile
on their face.
