Established in 1983.

We started inside my Mother’s Business (The Beadman). Then sold The company to my mother and ran it for her in a seperate building (480 sq ft). A few years latter she sold The Darkside back to me. I moved into lager building for a few more years and again moved to a lager building. After 10 years I moved into the current location which is almost 4000 sq ft.

Meet the Business Owner

My name is Bruce Bussard.  Have lived in Shasta County my whole life. Also I enjoy many out door activities such as, gardening, swimming, hiking, camping, and most any sport. I am fun loving and easy going for the most part. Try to treat people with the same amount respect that they show me. I have a great sense of humor and can pretty much make anyone laugh.

I have owned The Darkside for over 35 years now and the business is very successful. As well as I enjoy life and being around those who do as well. Have enjoyed living on my 11 acre property filled with deer, squirrels, birds and such. I would love to meet some new people who enjoy the some of the same activities that I do.

  1. I have been selling The Darkside my hand blown glass pipes and pendants for 12 years as of 2017. Bruce and Crew are, and have been, my most supportive smokeshop by far. They have supported me in good times and bad. They are not only my most supportive customer because they are the single largest purchaser of my glass, they also encourage me as an individual, an artist, and a father as well. And from my experience, they help a lot of people few others will help, including the homeless. Real, Authentic, and Genuine people.

  2. I have 3 Darksides the oldest ones has 1991 on the bottom. Damn I cant believe they are 30 years old almost. Both them from og 1109 in Pasadena.
