Glass Extravaganza in Vegas!



Since 1999, the CHAMPS trade shows have served the counterculture as the premier event for retailers to stock their head shops and alternative clothing boutiques. This week at the Las Vegas Convention Center, CHAMPS is hosting its biggest event yet with over 400 vendors in attendance and stars of the glass artist community competing in the CHAMPS Glass Games.
