    Speciality Shops: CHEAP Show Tickets

    by truesunn Written Jun 10, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the strip, next door to MnM World and the MGM Grand, you will notice a shop with a huge glass Coke bottle on it...

    What to buy: Inside this shop is a ticket counter which has show tickets 50% off! The shows offered are for THAT DAY ONLY. For example if you wake up on the morning of Friday, July 30th and go there, they will have tickets for the eve of July 30th ONLY!

    Selection will be limited during peak season, as they are the left over, unsold tickets.

    What to pay: Depends upon the show, but say you wanted to see Blue Man Group. Tix normally run around $90 each. You can get them for $45 assuming there is still seating the morning of the show!

    Teavana: Again, I go hunting for TEA!!!!!!

    by kymbanm Written May 5, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    QV checking out the tea :)

    Teavana is a heavenly chain exclusively selling teas and tea accessories. Being a tea addict, I look for this treat whenever I travel in the US. The one here in Las Vegas, was the begining of my obsession with this chain and their products ....

    What to buy: In addition to buying looseleaf teas, I can get a cup of custom blended tea right there at the counter :)

    I am particularly fond of thier tea infuser ... clean, efficient, etc ..... it's my #1 gift to give. QV liked the starter kit which has 2 oz each of 4 different looseleaf teas, cane sugar, a measuring spoon and that wonderful infuser for about 60.00$

    What to pay: You should expect to pay about 2$ for a custom cup of tea at the counter. The loose leaf tea prices vary depending on the ingredients .. the cheapest I've purchased is 2.50$/2 oz., and the most expensive was 18.00$/2oz. of their wonderful Silver Needle white tea ...... yummmmmmmm

    Speciality Shops: Pioneer Gifts

    by Yaqui Written Apr 19, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is huge gifts shop with lots of different souviners to choose from. The day we were here there were lots of people looks for gifts. Some people do not like these types of store, but I think they are fun.

    This was the Pioneer Club which open in April 1942, the Neon Cowboy wasn't added till 1952. Having many owners and not much success it now serves as gift shop since 1995.

    Speciality Shops: Lush Puppy - a Doggy paradise

    by SabrinaSummerville Written Jun 13, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I don't own a dog. I'll probably never own a dog. But I wanted to spend hours browsing the incredible Lush Puppy when I discovered it.

    As the name suggests, this store stocks everything for the pampered pooch - jewelled collars, rows of designer doggy wear, canine couches, moggy motors - anything but dog food. I'm sure Paris Hilton's pooch has a regular outing to this spot.

    I took tons of pics as it was just so delightful.

    What to buy: This is a doggy tip - treat your pet to something fabulous, even if it's not his birthday.

    What to pay: I was so taken aback that I didn't even look at the prices.

    M&M: melts in your mouth, not in your hands

    by richiecdisc Updated Sep 2, 2009

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    D loves her almond M&Ms

    Where else but Vegas could you find a store that sells nothing but M&M's? It's not some little tiny corner store either, it's like a department store. Nothing but M&M's. If you have to ask what an M&M is, you are not likely to go to this store anyway but they are candied coated chocolate that ingeniously melts in your mouth, not in your hands. I personally think this marketing slogan is the only reason they really made it. We love the almond ones for hiking but not sure they deserve a store of their own, at least not of this size. It's packed though and of course, they don't just sell the candy, they sell ANYTHING that has M&M on it. You name, they sell it. Dream it, they'll make it. No, no, that's the fancy chocolate store at The Bellagio.

    Souvenirs to take back to Alaska

    What to buy: A girl just needs a good pair of FMP's in her closet, even in Alaska. Of course, we can't wear them outside of the cabin, since the heels will get caught in the snow grates, and rip right off, and the men up here just laugh at damsels in distress.

    But we can put them on at home and dream, can't we??

    What to pay: Lots

    Wow, what can I say other than this place is elegant. We strolled all around and was so impressed at the details. Nothing but high end stores here. Not your typical stores for the middle-class. I am sure there are plenty of folks that can afford to shop here. Maybe when I win the mega lotto....lol! Still it's a very beautiful shopping mall with some really trendy restaurants. I got a kick about the one the looks like its shaped like a hair dryer:)

    Hours of operation: Sunday - Thursday, 10 a.m. - 11 p.m.; Friday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - midnight

    Restaurants in the mall: Beso, Mastro's Ocean Club,Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina, The Pods by Wolfgang Puck, Todd English P.U.B., The Cup and Social House

    What is neat is guests can also access Crystals from the CityCenter Tram at either Bellagio or Monte Carlo

    Sadly this was in the Sahara Hotel, which has closed:(

    Nascar fans will love this place. Located just inside the Sahrah Hotel, next to the NASCAR Cafe that offers museum quality memorabilia from your favorite drivers. There are two floors of NASCAR gifts, which include jumpsuits, helmets and even the cars themsleves. Checkout the top floor to overlook the fans wandering below. This place also offer great food and drinks from both floors. Check out the video game room too.

    Most smaller shops: Bring ID

    by SabrinaSummerville Written Jul 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Ireland when I use my credit cards I have a unique pin number that I must key in to prove it's my card. It's like using an ATM card and is a security measure.

    In Las Vegas I was surprised when a number of smaller stores refused my credit card unless I had ID. I don't normally carry my passport around with me in case it was stolen.

    In one of the smaller shops, ABC stores in the Fashion Show Mall, the shop assistant looked at me when I said the only ID I carried was other credit or bank cards and she said "Wow, that's scary." She refused to accept any of my cards and luckily I had enough cash on me.

    A similar incident happened at the Nail Art stall, but the girl there was prepared to accept my other cards as sufficient ID.

    In Maceys, Saks etc I had abolutely no problem.

    Bonanza: World's Largest Gift Shop!

    by clueless83 Written Feb 10, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bonanza!

    When in Vegas it is a must to buy something tacky to take home as a souvenir for yourself or your family and friends. The Bonanza Gift Shop (just opposite the Sahara Hotel) describe themselves as "Purveyors of Las Vegas Pop Culture" - and they aren't wrong! While some of the stuff they sell is tacky beyond belief, some of it is kitsch and fun. Bonanza is worth a look even if you don't buy anything!

    What to buy: I bought some shot glasses and photo frames as well as a 'Polly the insulting parrot' keyring for my friend Polly :-) I liked the Trailer Trash dolls they had but I wasn't prepared to spend $37 on one.

    What to pay: Prices range from 99c and up
