Viva Las Vegastamps

On my recent trip to Las Vegas I went to the Mecca for rubber stampers. Tucked just a couple of miles from the strip in a very nondescript building is nirvana. You can bet that I was VERY happy that I had restraint in the casinos so that I could purchase the manna that feeds my soul, rubber stamps. Viva Las Vegastamps was a store that I could have spent hours in reading all the phrase stamps and just thinking about how I could use the stamp. It was literally wall to wall stamps. No paper, no inks, no markers, pens or scrapbooks. JUST STAMPS. Rows and rows of stamps. I had to be conservative because I had to be able to carry (didn't trust the baggage handlers)my purchase. Believe me I developed my arms walking around the airport the day I left, LOL. The only negative that I have about the store. There were adorable pets behind the counter (who wouldn't want to work where they could bring their adorable "children") but the store had a slight aroma of those adorable little ones. It was mostly the felines that made their presence known. Other than that, this was a great place to visit to top off my fantabulous vacation. They do have an online store and of course I have an inside connection, my friend Stacie (who shopped with me) lives in NV and can always make a trip for that one (or two or three....)stamp that I may have forgotten and must have. Enjoy the pictures and if you are ever in Las Vegas by all means CHECK OUT THIS STORE!

Check out the table full of unmounted rubber. Those were only $1.00 and on the opposite side of the table were used rubber stamps for just $2.00. You could have a field day just at the bargain table.
