 SHEPHERDSVILLE - A local business now features a home location for both new and loyal customers.

Up N Smoke settled into its home at 110 Sparrow Drive off Cedar Grove Road by the end of 2010. The store is right off of Interstate 65 Exit 116, with the Statue of Liberty on top.

Owner/operator Chad Wade said Up N Smoke was established four years ago through the Most Awesome Flea Market. The business continues to maintain a satellite location there.

“We wanted to serve our customers throughout the week,” Wade said. “The economy was better and we got the guts, and our customer base has stuck with us.”

Proximity to the interstate has helped Wade’s store receive customers from Nashville to Indianapolis.

“They know about us,” he said. “It’s weird, but it’s a good weird, it’s pretty cool.”

Up N Smoke takes pride in a vast collection of tobacco-related accessories.

“We don’t sell cigars or cigarettes,” said Wade. “We sell all the accessories, like lighters, rolling papers, cigar wraps.”

Along with Up N Smoke, Wade also hosts another shop, Leather To Lace, within the same location.

Leather To Lace runs the gamut from motorcycle accessories and leather clothing to T-shirts and lingerie. 

Up N Smoke, along with Leather To Lace, is open seven days a week. Store hours are noon to 6 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays, noon to 7 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends. For more information call 537-9289 or go to www.up-n-smoke.net.
