Default Craft stores in Las Vegas

I live in the UK but often go on holiday to Florida. Soon I'm going to Las Vegas and hope someone here might be able to help. I love Joannes and Michaels, which would be the best ones in LVegas? Are there any other craft stores that I haven't seen in Florida? I don't want to miss out on anything! Thanks all, May

Viva Las Vegastamps has *unique* things you won't find anywhere else. I got a few Elvis stamps, Fishing stamps, as well as my Better than Hallmark stamp.

Some of the stamps are off color, and it's not in a great part of town. That did not bother me, but it may bother some people.

There is a store called Viva Las Vegas. I'm including the link here, which has the address. There is an online store, so you can see his merchandise. I went there, the last time I was in Las Vegas and very much enjoyed it. http://www.stampo.com/map.html If you click on the blog link, you can get a sense of what the store is like. http://vivalas.blogspot.com/ I'm not affiliated, I just like his store.

Just because it's not on the Las Vegas Strip doesn't mean it's a "bad area of town"... no rubber stamp store could afford to be on the Las Vegas Strip and where there were once six rubber stamp stores in Las Vegas, there's now one and it's not in an expensive shopping center... but does have the most rubber stamps of any store in the world and a YouTube video tour of it!

Oh, wouldn't Vegas have a Hobby Lobby? I thought they were in Nevada.

From what I understand, Hobby Lobby is like a combo of JoAnn's and Michaels. Don't quote me on that, its just what I've heard.

And for the record, Las Vegas is actually (APART from the strip) a very nice clean decent town.)

Meanwhile, I think I'll take a drive over to that shop some Saturday, eat me some prime rib, see a show... and then be "too tired" to drive home.

Snort.

Oh wow. That was the most overwhelming...

I truly think I'd be so overwhelmed that I'd not buy anything at all. I tedn to be that way.

I think maybe I need a series of trips to see just ONE section of the store at a time. Yeah. That'd do it.

There are a couple other Stamp stores here besides the Michaels and Joanns stores. We do NOT have Hobby Lobby here..wish we did.

Scrappin-Time is onw of the stores: www.scrappin-time.com and then there is:

Scrappy-DO www.scrappy-do.com

Scrapbook Superstore at 3900 N. Rancho Drive/phone 702-839-5366

Julie Jane Paper company **My FAVORITE** www.jjpaperco.com

Majestic Memories www.majesticmemorieslv.com

All of these stores have stamps and other papercrafting stuff. Some stores are better than others and some in nicer areas than others but they would require a cab ride from the strip.

blessings.

This is wonderful news! I'm heading to Vegas in a few weeks and have added stopping at Viva Las Vegas Stamps to our list. How exciting!! Thank you so much for all the information.

Majestic Memories has closed as well as another scrapbook store that changed its name so many times I can't remember what it was when it closed... there are three scrapbook stores left now.

I've been to Viva Las Vega Stamps many times - it is in a perfectly safe part of town. I did need to take a cab there from where I was on the strip. It's a great store with tons of stamps!

I live in Las Vegas half the year and hate to hear people visiting tell others that the extreme north end of the Strip is a "safe" place. I would never walk around there and would be very cautious getting in and out of my car if I drove. Otoh, Julie Janes is in a beautiful area of Summerlin, which is a high end area in the northwest. The best neighborhoods of Las Vegas are those that fan out from the Strip at the farthest points from it, all around.

I'm totally aware Summerlin is referred to as Snoberlin and totally aware you own the stamp store we are discussing and totally aware it is in zipcode 89104 and totally aware if anyone checks the crime incidence map for Clark County, they will see that area designated as red. Green zipcode areas like Summerlin have the least crime, yellow the next best, orange is getting dicey and red is the highest crime area. This is public information, not a matter of opinion. I would also suggest posters using the internet to request info on stamp store locations in various states, instead of accepting one locals opinion of safety, check the public info, which in this case, would be Clark County's crime incident map which spells out each and every crime for the area for a selected period of time.

Oh Stampo! I am going in Sept for my daughter's wedding and will be visiting you! Shoot, I have been all over Vegas in the daytime and never once had a problem--except at the strip. I get tired of all the neekid lady guys standing around and handing out literature--and that is using the term loosely!

We LOVE downtown and the upper end...it has all the flavor!

You can get an all day pass for the bus. I think it is now $7 for a whole day and you keep the same ticket you buy from the driver for 24 hours. They prefer exact money though.

If you are staying mid strip then you can take the duece bus to Sahara Ave. and then go east until you come to a small mall with commercial buildings and then cross the street. Contact Stampo, he will give you directions. Call them first as they open when they can.

If you love pets, they have them in the store and they are so cute. All rescue dogs and cats.

The stamps are amazing. Anything from anywhere in the world. I found some lovely Australian and New Zealand stamps but they have them from all over. Just go in the daytime. I doubt he is open at night anyway.
