There are a number of vintage and antique stores in Las Vegas where bargain hunters can find a great deal. Whether you’re looking for pinup-girl outfits or a full-size retro neon sign for your basement game room, you’re sure to find it at one of these locations.

Luxe Rust: Find custom antiques made from old junk

Vintage shopping is all about the story behind an item, and at Luxe Rust, those stories are plentiful. The owner has a strong focus on sustainability and a mission to keep as many parts, pieces and materials as possible out of local landfills. Discover lamps repurposed from old Army raid horns, a Hollywood starlet’s slipper chairs and handcrafted, live-edge tables. You’ll feel confident that “reduce, reuse, recycle” is a guiding principle behind this joint’s selection.

This may be the best-kept secret among all the antique stores in Las Vegas. Charleston Antique Mall is the holy grail of antique shopping, with a little shabby chic and country glamour mixed in for good measure. Prices range from a few bucks to thousands for rare pieces, but overall, costs are very reasonable and the customer service is top-notch. Look for Pyrex pieces, midcentury furniture, housewares and vintage clothing and accessories. Wear comfortable shoes—with 18,000 square feet of merchandise, you’ll probably be here a while.

Modern Mantiques: Jazz up your man cave at this “Mantique” store

Do you believe shopping is a girl thing? You may think differently after a trip to Modern Mantiques. This shop is a tip of the cap to dads, grandpas and guys everywhere. With a wide range of military items, sports memorabilia, vintage toys, vinyl albums and slot machines, many a manly man has found his happy place here.

Antiquities: Snag celebrity memorabilia and one-of-a-kind antiques

Got a celebrity obsession? Of all the antique stores in Las Vegas, this is your spot. Owned by a former harpist, Antiquities specializes in movie, music and television memorabilia. Think vintage phone booths and vending machines, a 1938 edition of Gone With the Wind signed by Clark Gable, Buddy Holly’s autographed “Peggy Sue” lyrics, a gorilla costume from the original Planet of the Apes movie and a necklace owned by Marilyn Monroe. You can even score a Golden Ticket prop from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Retro Vegas, one of the most unique antique stores in Las Vegas, is Sin City history rolled up into one big store—mid-mod furniture, vintage signage, lighting ranging from Danish sculptural table lamps to Lucite chandeliers, old-school ashtrays and velvet sofas. You name it, Retro Vegas likely has it. During your visit, you can even schedule a photo shoot in the “pink kitchen”—a wonderfully cheesy, Pepto-Bismol-tinged setup complete with double ovens, classic cooking accessories and a four-seater vinyl dinette set. Upstairs in the loft space is The Red Kat, which features fashions from the 50s, 60s and 70s.
