I will be in Las vegas in October and would love to do some bead shopping. Any where good I should visit? I will be staying on the strip. Thanks
Will you have a car? If not then really there isn't anything close enough. The Vegas Beads would not be too far but don't walk through that area. Between the industrial space and the strip joints not the best neighborhood...
The other store mentioned is nice but a long way off the strip. You will go by Beads Plus on Sahara & Decator getting to it. You can take classes for free there - you have to buy the supplies. Don't know if you have time to kill but its always fun to sit down and bead with others isn't it?
There is another store on Horizon Ridge Parkway in Henderson (name is escaping me!) that has a HUGE selection of stone beads and usually has a special each month (October birthstones are ? it would be one of them) that you might want to add to the list IF you have a car.
The Strip is not in LAS VEGAS proper - its in the county. Vegas Beads and Beads Plus are in the county. The other store on Sahara is in Vegas. Vegas borders the strip to the northwest and the north - oh heck to the north period...lol Henderson borders the county land to the south east. Its been a sore subject with the City of Las Vegas that they didn't annex the Strip when the casinos started to build - heck they sent them out there and said downtown would always be the "place". Yep, huge tax disadvantage for them. (I live on county land so I think its kind of funny.)
October is a great time of year to visit! We are fighting between great fall days and warm days still right now...so come prepared for temps down to the low 70s and up to the 90s.
