Wonderful little place! Great energy and lots of good finds! Definitely go on a day when they're having a sale (almost always!) And they have some of the best thrift prices in Vegas!

This located in a strip mall. Store is on the smaller size. They really tried to pack in the merchandise. Things are priced high but they offer a discount? Selection is not the best. With a quick browse your in and out. You can cover the place in a few minutes.

Overpriced. The lady that was working the last time we went followed us around watching us like she thought we were going to steal something. They had shoes that were completely falling apart. The first time we were there the prices were good and they didn’t treat us like shoplifters, so I’m not sure what happened, but we won’t be going back.

Cool to see if you're in Golden Nugget already, but probably not something I would recommend making a special stop for.
