Higher Education, which sells pipes, tobacco, rolling papers and smoking accessories, opened in September at 2307 W. Cary St.

It’s the second location for owner Dawn Morris, who first opened Higher Education in Fort Collins, Colorado, in 1998. In 2015, she moved back to Zion Crossroads, Virginia, and re-opened the shop in Charlottesville, which remains in business.
