Our Story

We are the oldest headshop in Northern California. Since 1967 we've been serving the bay area with the largest selection of smoking accessories, posters, t-shirts, incence, jewelry/body jewelry, alternative gifts, and much much more! We pride ourselves in our competitive prices and unique customer service. Just ask yo momma!!

Who We Are

When you first step into Paramount Imports, you notice a wonderful-unique aroma that has become synonymous with our name "Paramount". For decades, that scent comes from having a store filled with possibly the widest variety of incense that you've ever smelled in your life. Incense from all over the world! Also, our selection of pipes is probably the largest that you have ever seen. However, we are so much more. We carry at least a little bit of almost anything imaginable. You will find things here in our store that you may have never found anywhere else.

Our History

Paramount Imports began in 1967, the summer of love. We started as an importer of statuary and home decorations from Mexico. As the sixties progressed into the seventies our store (one of the first of its kind) evolved into an icon, representing the very best of the psychedelic age.
