Shopping the fun and fabulous Retro Vegas vintage store

retro-vegas-shopI went. I spoke. I toured. And then: I shopped. On the Monday after the Nevada Preservation Foundation’s Vintage Vegas Home & History Tour, did I want to go visit the Neon Museum, Executive Director Heidi Swank asked? Well maybe next time … because I needed to hit up Retro Vegas, arguably the premier vintage shop in Las Vegas. And It Did Not Disappoint! 

The vintage pink GE steel kitchen:

retro-las-vegas-shop-8Thanks to Heidi for taking me shopping. And super thanks to Retro Vegas owners Mark (above) and Bill: In support of Nevada Preservation’s Home & History Tour, they provided the furniture for the staging of the Jackie Gaughan apartment (that story: to come!) And, they offered a 15% discount to Home & History attendees — which I certainly took advantage of!

    How were their prices as far as furnishings and accessories go? There is a photo above that had a curved kind of office desk that I absolutely adored! I’d never want to leave!

      I only looked at a few prices, and the ones I saw I thought were reasonable, considering how desirable much of these stuff is.

    Coming to Vegas in about 2 weeks. You are on the list of places to visit…..I’m bringing extra $$$ now since I came across your store.
