Thrift Core Vacation: Hitting up Vegas and Philly

 [My travel bags in my friend Kira's amazing 90s retro guest bedroom: more pictures coming soon!]

I'm on vacation this week, my first vacation in three years! I'm at my friend Kira's house in Philly, we randomly had the same week off and decided to go for the ultimate spontaneous vacation: from here we head to Vegas! I'll probably update periodically during the week with my Vegas thrifting adventures. Any pro Vegas thrifters out there have tips to share with me? I'd love to hear 'em!


I'll be back to my regular posting schedule next week, but do check in during the week for my vacation thrifting adventures!

  1. I heard pawn shops in Vegas are amazing but I figure they would be better for jewelry rather than vintage home decor. Unless I'm mistaken you'll be there the same weekend as Viva Vegas, a vintage/rockabilly event that features a fashion show, antique car show and live music. It's billed as the biggest Rockabilly Party in the World: http://www.vivalasvegas.net/vlv14/

    Hope you have a good vacation, I'll be doing a lot of traveling in the next month too.

  3. Big money, big money! Hope you scored some nifty finds in Vegas. They have a HUGE thrift there, I think it's called Savers. It's like Ross. Their Salvation Army is decent. Have a sweet trip!

  4. Have a great trip/adventure! Maybe you can get onto an episode of Pawn Stars??
    My dream vacation is to someday get to a store where they sell lost air flight luggage.

  8. Hey, Van! How long will you be in Philly before you head off to Vegas? It would be awesome if you and Kira would meet up with me for a day of thrifting! Anyhoo, have fun!
