One of my friends lately went to Nevada and got a chance to make a trip to Las Vegas and she found that it is not only famous for gambling and casinos but much more than that. As she wanted to visit places of attraction she got to see the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, had fun at lake Mead, visited the Mom museum, the Neon museum and had fun eating at best of places. But one thing she told me that was something I loved to hear from her and that was her visit to the Las Vegas vintage emporiums. She brought for me a glittery wearable besides few other things so I thought to share with you such stores where you can find some awesome treasure if you make your trip to Vegas city. So find here five vintage or thrifty stores that you must visit if you are in Las Vegas.
