On the Midwest Stampers' List

You MUST visit Viva Las Vegastamps. It is a delightful store packed full of stamps, and you will find yourself walking around the store laughing out loud at the funny stuff and being amazed by the variety of images. Things you would never have thought of as a stamp will be on the shelves. Stampo also has a blackjack table in there with a pile of rubber on top, and that's the rubber pit. Lots and lots of wonderful images at discount prices in the rubber pit. He also bought out inventory from the recently closed store Las Vegas Art Stamps, which was also a really nice store.
It's not easy to find, because even though the address is on Sahara Avenue, it's actually in a little "office mall" type place down a short alley off of Sahara Avenue. It's not too far off of Las Vegas Blvd, and when you see the Keys Lounge (or Keyes Lounge -- but I don't think it has the "e" on Keys), there is a little alleyway next to it. It's just down that little alley (it's not really an alley, but rather, a very small street -- the word "alley" denotes a creepy feeling, and it's not creepy at all... just an extension of the street). I highly recommend calling them before you go to get directions; for all I know, by now the Keys Lounge has changed names!)
It is a WONDERFUL place and well worth the trouble of finding it!!!! I've actually only been there once, and it was easily 10 years ago, and the memories of that visit are firmly in my brain....that's how great I found that store!

PS from Stampo... Keys Lounge is now called Square Apple and we're right behind it... and we've doubled the size of our store.
