I 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:
First off, Retro Vegas is kinda famous for their vintage pink GE kitchen assembled in the back corner of the store. It is not for sale. They rent out the space for photo shoots and the like. Nom nom. A vintage pink GE kitchen!
Vintage dinettes galore:
And I give up on categories — here’s lots more:
Upstairs is the vintage clothing section … and this is where Heidi and I hit a Gold Mine.
The Hawaiian-style dresses — see — a whole rack — a whole rack of NEW OLD STOCK. And quite a few in OUR SIZES. We had a heyday trying on dresses. They looked great on us — and the prices were terrific!
Thanks 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!
