Where are the best thrift stores in Las Vegas?  "Best" as in variety and price.  Resale stores, pawn shops, flea markets and vintage clothing stores are all cool.  My friend and I are taking an "everything but gambling and casinos" Las Vegas vacation in a few months and I was volunteered to be in charge of the itinerary.  I seem to recall a "member only" vintage store....  Any and all help appreciated!  I'll even send you a postcard from BunBoy.

Aside from the usual Goodwill/Salvation Army type stores, there's Opportunity Village on Main Street, Buffalo Exchange on Flamingo/Maryland and Savers on Tropicana/Pecos. At least, those are the ones that are easy to get to and not in terribly skeezy parts of town.

I reccomend Desert Industries and the thift stores owned by the Catholic Charities (I forget the name exactly). The ones I've seen have been cheap, organized and worth a couple of visits back.

Don't forget the yard sales on the weekend. The earlier you start the better the deals!

sorry to bring this from the dead.

but that member only place is most likely "The Attic" its a vintage clothing store in the Arts district off of Charleston and Main. Its pretty cool, its sort of hit and miss though, theres only vintage clothes upstairs and the downstairs is all kinds of wacky stuff. It used to be member only, or they charged to get in. Now its open to whomever.

I agree with Desert Industries. Theres one off of LV Blvd. passing downtown, going north. Then theres another off of Flamingo and Boulder highway, I like this one a little better because they have a few racks that are "vintage" stuff (not really, but they try).

Buffalo exchange is okay, its gotten pricier though. The las vegas one is the one that has impressed me the most out of all the other ones Ive gone to, being those in California.

When I lived in california, I loved going to Goodwill stores. Avoid them at all costs in Las Vegas, they are just left over junk from the end of the season at Target, and usually horribly disorganized.

No need to apologize for this resurrection!

We didn't go last year, we might go this year so all that info is much appreciated.

This one isn't a Thrift store but...I have lived here 10 years before I ventured to it...but try the Gambler's Store in Old Vegas.  Anyone interested in paper arts would love it - they stock all the Casino used card decks...and other very VEGAS type stuff.    Definitely interesting for a one time trip.

Well that all depends on what you are looking for ... Goodwill (the central location off lake mead and the I 15) is good for old movie projectors 8mm and 16mm **every single time I go I get at least one or 2 movie projectors that are in great cond. Not so good for clothes.

There are some independently and locally owned thrift stores that are awesome for vintage purses, others are awesome for vintage furs. So what is it that you are looking for?

Okay, So I know this is a little off topic, but I really like rooting around in the Asian stationary stores and such down on Spring Mountain. Tons of cool stuff and usually pretty resonably priced. I think it's fun anyway and if you are into papercrafts it a wealth of cartoon and anime...

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?
