My current vacation

Hello everyone. For those of you who don't know, I am currently on vacation in Las Vegas. It's my day 2 today here. I tell you, it's an oven here. Extremely hot and so different than where I am in Canada. It's my 6th visits this time and I think this is the hottest vacation I have from the past few times. Meanwhile, my husband is down at the pool with my daughter, I am doing my blog post today to show you a stamp shop I went earlier. This stamp shop is called Viva Las Vegastamps. It's located in 1008 East Sahara Avenue. It's not a huge shop, but it has tons of stamps to look at. The owner is quite nice and friendly too, so I think it's worth a trip to check it out if you ever get a chance to visit Las Vegas.

Front of the store. You have to ring the bell first, then to push the door open.


As soon as you walk through a hallway, you just open another door to get in to the actual stamp store where you see a huge bulk unmounted stamps table. These bulk stamps are 1 for $1.00 or 12 for $10. See my hubby was bored while I checked through some bulk sentiment stamps and he started to take a picture for himself?!


Here are more view of the store



Since I have lots of stamps at home, I didn't really get that many stamps, but bought mostly sentiment stamps. They have a huge selections on that and of course lots of rubber stamps too, but we were to rush back to the hotel as my daughter wanted to swim, so that's the end of my stamp shop trip. If I see more fun places, I will post to share. Thank you for stopping today and the last few days for my prescheduled posts :o)

Oh you lucky girl! I've seen that store before and sooo want to go. I would be looking through all the $1 stamps. Wish I could find a store here in Toronto that has unmounted $1 stamps. I've always wanted to go to Vegas. I don't know why I never went when I lived in Vancouver. Now that I'm in Ontario it's gonna cost alot more to fly to Vegas :o( Pls post more pix of your trip. I would luv to see more of Vegas.
