Livin’ Local Shop ‘Til You Drop After getting your train fix, head straight into town where the heart of Boulder City offers plenty of eclectic shopping opportunities. And by shopping, I’m not talking about overcrowded outlet malls... as those are for the city folk! Here in this “dam city” the antique stores and vintage shops are where it’s at! I stopped in at Goatfeathers Emporium and spent nearly an hour browsing vintage goods in the massive 8,000 sq. ft., two!story building. Due to the myriad of vendors who rent space, you can find anything from individual wooden Scrabble game tiles to authentic Victorian furniture. There’s neon signs, antique cameras, a ton of vinyl records and plenty of Elvis and Marilyn memorabilia. While there, remember to “look up” because there’s plenty of stuff hanging from the rafters that’s easy to miss! Get the goods at GoatfeathersBoulderCity.com May/June 2017 43
