About Us

Welcome! I’m TJ, owner/operator of Offbeat and Unique Vape Boutique.

We opened our doors January 1st, 2014 in beautiful Gilbert, AZ, determined to be the first vape shop and lounge of its kind. If our varied and loyal customer base and online reviews are any indication, we are well on our way.

Here’s our story.

I had kicked around the idea of starting a small business for a quite some time…but I didn’t know just what it would be. I knew the why: 1) As means to escape the corporate world and more importantly, 2) I love helping people. What I knew from the start was that it couldn’t be just any business, it was imperative that my new venture – whatever it turned out to be – MUST be something that would help others in some way. I had my “why” but the “what” hadn’t shown itself yet.

Meanwhile, in early 2013 I visited my very dear friends, the Squires, in Kansas City. They had recently started dabbling in buying e-Liquid and some simple hardware to resell to various friends and family prior to opening a vape shop and lounge called Cigawatt in Blue Springs, MO. They introduced me to the “e-cig” and many of the wonderful flavors of “e-liquid” and even gave me my first bit of rudimentary education on vaping and my very own “e-cig” to take back home. Having been a smoker for nearly 25 years and unsuccessful at every prior attempt to quit, I was very encouraged by the success stories I heard and excited to try it for myself. It was quickly apparent that this could very well be the BetTer alternative to cigarettes that had eluded me for so long. I started vaping and stopped smoking.

Then it hit me: this was it. This was the “what” I’d been searching for. Once I got home from my trip, I had a vision and it was quickly decided – I would work to open our own shop. I was having great success in getting away from traditional tobacco, and I felt certain that helping others with their goals was something that could bring me a tremendous of joy and happiness.

The research and planning phase of this venture began. I literally spent the better part of a year immersing myself in everything vape – I read blogs, watched videos and read thousands of reviews on everything from the history of electronic cigarettes, simple tanks, atomizers, e-liquid to the most advanced custom mods and specialty e-liquids. But academic research only gets you so far. So I set about personally purchasing and testing all manner of hardware and e-liquid on the market that I could get my hands on to see what worked and what didn’t. Not only did I gain firsthand knowledge of devices and liquids, but during the course of my exhaustive research, I heard and read so many horror stories of the frustrations people experienced while trying to purchase and use e-cigs, I was sure there had to be a BetTer way. I was determined to be it. If I was going to do this… it must be done RIGHT!


My goal is to find the perfect solution FOR YOU. Unlike so many others, I didn’t go out and look for the cheapest hardware and liquids with HUGE profit margins. Instead, I sought to carry only authentic products purchased from the manufacturers directly whenever possible – ensuring a quality product that will serve YOU well. Though experiences are similar, everyone is different – what works for one person may not necessarily work for the next. By listening to your wants, needs and prior habits, I am confident that we will be able to find the best solution for YOUR success.

But hardware and e-Liquid is only part of the story. What sets us apart is our knowledge and customer service. We’ve personally experienced and heard the failures and understand why some options work better than others. Even better, because we’ve personally seen, heard and fostered some of the MANY successes of others, we’ll do everything we can to help you become another one of those success stories. That begins with your decision to take the plunge. From there you’ll need the right equipment, the proper education, continued support and someone that will stand behind their product. It is our sincere hope that you will find that someone in Offbeat and Unique.

If there’s anything else you wish to know about us, just ask!

We owe a huge thank you to our local community and customers for supporting us in our mission and our hope is that each and every one of you will continue to do so.

Thank you again and have a GREAT day!



We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
