Utopia is incense warehouse
There are not too many shops on Long Island that stock a large assortment of incense, candles, crystals and Wicca items like that. However, in the land of Theresa Caputo, the Long Island Medium, there is a store called Utopia. They have a 2-floor space at 3 Newbridge Road in Hicksville that also does body piercings and tattoos. (If you wish a tattoo, call ahead to make an appointment.)
Utopia has a large website www.incensewarehouse.com that features many more items than displayed in the store. (In fact, if you type in utopia.com, it is directed to incensewarehouse.com.) You can purchase items on their website and pick them up in the store as there is a large inventory upstairs that is not on view to the public. You can pay online or in the store. Utopia began in the ’70’s selling imported Indian incense. This grew to include Japanese and Tibetan incense through their other website www.santosha.com, which stocks many yoga and meditation items.
During my most recent trip to Utopia, I took so many pictures and wasn’t sure how I would write this article, so I finally decided to just run the photos and show the variety of merchandise. I hope you stop by – it’s an awesome place to browse around in. They also have t-shirts, jackets, shoes, Halloween costumes in October, a very large smoke shop downstairs with hookahs, glass pipes and a very artsy high-end line – plus a lot more.
Utopia is open everyday 11-7. The phone number is 516-935-6680. And, oh yeah, the staff is very friendly and accommodating.
