Shop Small Business: Local Vegas Boutiques

Anyone who lives in Las Vegas knows that there’s so much more to this treasure of a city than the Strip. In fact, the most unique places are found around the corner… not the casino. At American West Homes, we continue to fall in love with the mom and pop shops that dazzle patrons near the homes we build, and we can’t wait for you to experience everything they bring to Vegas and Henderson.

If you like arts and crafts… The Paper Bunny is an all-purpose crafts heaven with a calendar full of events and classes designed for you to expand your creativity. From turning an old book into something new to mastering watercolors, this one-of-a-kind art hub is where you’ll get to splash some color into your day.

If you like movies, candy, and nostalgia… Movies & Candy in Henderson is where you’ll take your greatest trip down memory lane. Filled with over 30,000 movies to rent, vintage soda, and barrels full of retro candy, you’ll forget all about Netflix for a glorious ‘90s moment. Go back to a time when Saturday nights meant a trip to the video store and your new favorite flick was just one shelf away…

If your children or grandchildren like toys… Kappa Toys is the store that will kappa-ture their hearts, especially because there’s truly nothing you can’t find here. Action figures, robots, books, music, LEGO®, plush, puzzles, novelties, robots — you name it. Forget candy, it’s all about being a “kid in a toy store.”

If you like variety… Water Street District is a quaint shopping strip with a personality you can’t help but love. From quirky art and jewelry shops to custom bakeries and candy-making, the stores here are filled to the brim with heart and soul. Head over to this charming oasis for something unique to discover and take home.

If you like interactive, modern art… Container Park is the place to join in on all the fun. This wildly eccentric, always-entertaining shopping center is now letting you become “a part of the art…” With funky, interactive installments, you can experience something new (and get an Insta-worthy photo, of course) while you shop.

Away from the Las Vegas Strip, hidden gems are waiting to be found. Everyone who lives here loves to support our community by shopping local, and we hope you enjoy a few of our very favorites! For more information on our homes and communities, please visit our website.
