Happy Valley Glass House To Open Inside Uncle Eli’s

Proud Penn State alum and life-long townie Nicholas Hordov is a rapidly rising businessman, although he isn’t exactly operating your hometown ice cream parlor.

Hordov has a passion for glass. From scientific bongs to accessories, he has grown an affinity towards the culture of tasteful smoking. He began selling quality glass pieces during his years at Penn State, and decided to take his passion to a new level. One year and some negotiations later, Hordov is now opening his own glass bong shop.

The Happy Valley Glass House has many shelves full of all types of glass pieces.

The Happy Valley Glass House will open in downtown State College this week. The store is located inside Uncle Eli’s Art Store on Beaver Avenue. Hordov plans to sell hand-blown, high-quality American glass that can’t be found anywhere else in State College.

“I want my customers to feel welcomed and have direct contact with me,” Hordov explained. “Other stores selling glass here don’t offer that same quality, which I think is important.”

The store will offer a wide variety of pieces such as Mothership glass, Toro Glass, and Cello Glass. The grand opening will be Friday from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., and there will be collectors flying in from all over the United States to display their personal collections.

In terms of business, Hordov will trade, purchase, and negotiate with his customers to ensure they are completely satisfied. Happy Valley Glass House aims to offer personable service and advice that no other shop in State College can beat.

“We want to provide products for the classy and upscale smokers, as well as the people who are on a budget. I want to cater to anyone who is interested and wants to learn more,” he explained. “I’ve lived in this town my whole life, went to Penn State, and love this school just like everyone else who walks through its doors.”
