Issue #35 – Shop Till You Drop

                When tourists come to the Las Vegas Valley, most of them gamble, and besides that, they look and shop for the latest trends and accessories.

                One of these new malls out there is Downtown Summerlin, which attracts an upscale mall on the city’s west side, which makes it more convenient for many locals and shopaholics. The development continues to grow, with nearly 400 acres of lavish space, nearby is the new Las Vegas ballpark, which houses the Aviators and the City National Arena, which is the practice rink for the Las Vegas Golden Knights. In addition, they have a Farmers Market, which opens on Saturdays. Also many seasonal events, including Holiday festivities for the kids at the Rock Rink. More developments and growth are in the works at Downtown Summerlin in the near future.

                Also, you can check the Fantastik Indoor Swap Meet at 1717 S. Decatur Blvd. in Las Vegas. It has been housed in the same location for over 30 years,  locals and vendors can rent a little space and run a small business there. You can look for pets, cosmetics, Halloween costumes, jewelry and hundreds of other items. The Swap Meet is only open on Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 10 AM- 6 PM. Prices are reasonable and shopping is easy. They have an admission price of one dollar but give you a coupon that you can use at any of the vendors in the swap meet.

                If you’re looking for toys, vintage and houseware items or other antiques , you might want to check out the Charleston Antique Mall, which is north of the Swap Meet at 560 N. Decatur Blvd. If you’re a treasure hunter looking for any vintage goods, go visit there. There are more than 60 vendors to choose from & they have some cool stuff for really good prices.

                Finally, we head south to the Town Square Las Vegas, which is quite a little trendy like Downtown Summerlin. If you’re shopping near the Strip, we highly recommend the place. They’ve got a Whole Foods Market, along with a Children’s Park for the kids, along with dining, office and entertainment complexes. It features more than 120 stores, along with activities and events, along with a new Raider Image team store, for the new Las Vegas Raiders. If you’re a shopping buff, come check it out.
