We used to have an excellent shop here in Newbury that sold kites, juggling clubs etc and more importantly poi. But it recently closed down and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could buy poi from in Berkshire. I know there are a lot of places online i could buy from, but I'd rather see what I'm buying as I'm new to spinning and the technical jargon is a bit confusing at this stage.

Posted:In Reading there's a similar kite shop type place that sold poi and juggling stuff. it's in the Harris Arcade in Friar Street there isn't a massive amount of choice there though, and i was last there about a year ago, so they could have disappeared. juggly/kite shops can be a bit short lived
alternatively you could buy over t'internet from the HoP shop, or hyperloop.co.uk i'd recommend HoP for fire stuff, and hyperloop for funky cone poi.
or make a trip into Camden in London and visit Oddballs (right next to the market at Camden Lock, usually a good choice of stuff, maybe a little pricey) but i wouldn't recommend them for practice poi at the moment, they only have rubbish tails
