1. Custom Poker Chips

Custom Poker Chips
Now that Hold’em poker is a game everyone’s heard of, setting up a poker night with your buddies is easy and Spinetti’s Gaming Supplies has every kind of gaming device and accessory you’ll need. From craps, blackjack, roulette, keno, and the wheel of fortune, they’ve got it all.

For the poker aficionado, chips are made in 3 different materials. The finest chips are made of clay and usually have a cloth inlay in the center. You can easily identify these chips in casinos as the chips that show edge wear. Plastic chips are the cheapest, they are very lightweight, and usually have a gold or silver hot-stamp design in the center. And, of course, there are the epoxy blend chips that have a photo or graphic design printed on each side.

When it comes to home poker, the sky is the limit. You can buy an inexpensive set of 300 chips for as little as $20 or upgrade to a set of clay chips with custom inlay, personalized carrying case and playing cards for as little as $300. You can, of course, spend more on chips with fancy inlays, personalized playing cards, an exotic wood carrying case, and even your own custom-designed 9-man poker table, but most players are happy with a 500-chip set with box and cards for $99.

2. Navajo Turquoise Bracelet

Navajo Turquoise Bracelet
The Navajo are one of the most craft-oriented of all the Native American tribes, and more than 50,000 tribe members live in Southern Nevada. Indian jewelry is usually identified by the turquoise stone inlay, but what makes this bracelet special is that the gorgeous blue stone with the streak of brown is mined locally and is known as Boulder Turquoise.

One of the premier Las Vegas adventures is a trip out to Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and Boulder City. And along the way you’ll pass plenty of curio and antique shops, but the one you want to visit for genuine and affordable Indian goods is the Boulder City Trading Post. Set right where the road turns off for Hoover Dam, the Trading Post sells ancient Indian artifacts, as well as Dream Catchers, Blankets, Tomahawks, Jewelry, Bows and Arrows, Furniture, Saddle Purses, Pottery, Baskets, and lots more.

This stunning bracelet was fashioned by a local artist of sterling sliver, mined in Nevada, and an oval inlay of Boulder Turquoise. The bracelet retails for $650, but if the price is too steep, there’s plenty of other beautiful turquoise jewelry to choose from.

4. Collectible “Golden Nugget” Casino Chip and Dice

Collectible “Golden Nugget” Casino Chip and Dice
Las Vegas was established in 1905 and, until construction on Hoover Dam began in 1931, the town survived on illegal backroom gambling and prostitution. The new dam guaranteed more than 22,000 men and their families would move to the area, but the federal government refused to use Las Vegas as the hub. In response, the Nevada legislature legalized gambling on the local level, knowing full well the workers would pour into Las Vegas on payday. Had the government used Las Vegas as the center of its operation, Las Vegas’ growth might have taken a different direction. As it happened, the town opened the doors to a gaming industry that has grown beyond anyone’s wildest dreams.

Although downtown Las Vegas set the stage for gaming in 1932, the Las Vegas Strip didn’t get started until 1945 with the El Rancho Vegas and Bugsy Siegel’s Flamingo. The Golden Nugget Casino opened a year later in what’s now known as Glitter Gulch. Because casino chips were worthless outside the casino, they were always cashed in, but some found their way out of town and now have collectible value. This Golden Nugget chip is from the 1960s and is a classic example of a vintage chip and has the trademark GN sign of the 40s and 50s. This chip in mint condition sells for $60. These modern day dice sell for $1-$5.

5. Custom-Tailored Elvis Jumpsuit

Custom-Tailored Elvis Jumpsuit
With the exception of the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign that’s been welcoming visitors since 1959, is there anything more iconic in Las Vegas than Elvis Presley? Not only is he on billions of souvenirs, he’s also headlining several “Tribute” lounge acts and officiating a wedding at the Chapel of Love. Elvis Aaron Presley came to Las Vegas in 1964 to make the movie Viva Las Vegas with newcomer Ann Margaret, and his love affair with the city continued until his death in 1977. But it wasn’t until 1969 that Elvis began headlining in Las Vegas and no other performer comes close to rivaling the legacy of the King.

Whether you want to go to your office Xmas party dressed as a young svelte Elvis, entertain your B-B-B-Baby in the Jungle Room or fancy yourself as a hip-slinging, pelvis-giggling Elvis in gold lame, Show-off Las Vegas Costumes will fit you for your own jumpsuit and help you personalize that special look with all the Elvis accessories you’ll ever need. All you have to supply is the attitude and, oh yeah, sideburns. Custom-tailored Elvis Presley Jumpsuits start around $999. By appointment or online.

6. Custom-Tailored Showgirl Costumes

Custom-Tailored Showgirl Costumes
Women have been entertaining the opposite sex since the beginning of time and although the costumes may have evolved from animal hides and vegetation, the Las Vegas Showgirl sets the standard for follies-style glamour and glitz. Burlesque halls and speakeasy’s began sprouting up in the early 1930s, when the State legislature legalized gambling, so Las Vegas might profit from the workers at Hoover Dam when they came in on Payday. Once the “Strip” got going, hotels used headliner shows to outdo their competition. And what’s more alluring than a topless review? The Tropicana Hotel imported the Follies Bergere from Paris and countless topless shows followed.

Gillian Gardner has made costumes for every hotel and show on the Strip, and a multitude of Hollywood celebrities. While your husband is being measured for his tailored Elvis jumpsuit, get fitted for your own custom-made showgirl costume. These brilliantly designed costumes come in every color imaginable and with so many choices to make between plumed headdresses, fans, bras, thongs, gloves, tails, wings, boas, necklaces and shoes, you’re imagination can and will run wild. Whatever the occasion, you’ll look absolutely “Fabulous” in a divine creation from the Master of all Showgirl costumes. Show-off Las Vegas Costumes has some pre-made costumes available for immediate sale, but indulge your inner-burlesque diva with a custom fitting for a truly one-of-a-kind Glitter Gulch souvenir. Prices start around $999.

7. Nevada Vodka

Nevada Vodka
How can the only state in the union that allows gambling, prostitution, drinking in public places, and a bevy of other adult indulgences, justify a ban on the production of distilled liquor? Each weekend enough liquor is poured in Las Vegas to fill an Olympic-size swimming pool, and yet capitalizing on this glut of inebriation has escaped the State of Nevada tax collectors until now. Nevada prohibited the production of distilled spirits until the summer of 2011, and the Las Vegas Distillery, was primed and ready to go. In fact, the owners of this small, family-run artisan boutique distillery were instrumental in pushing through a law that had been long neglected by the legislature.

Using two copper pot 170 gallon stills, named Swan and Angel, and carefully selected grain from Winnemuca Farms, George and his wife Katalin use ancestral Hungarian and Transylvanian recipes to provide the backbone of these divine spirits. Milled, cooked, and fermented in the distillery, each batch is its own work of art. With their handcrafted vodka already on the shelves, gin, whiskey, bourbon and several special liquors are on their way. Las Vegas Distillery liquors are available at most fine liquor stores and Albertson’s and Whole Foods markets and most fine liquor stores. And if you have a chance, call the distillery for your own private tour. Price: $29

Las Vegas Distillery, 7330 Eastgate Rd, Ste 100, Henderson, NV 89011

8. Saguaro Cactus

Saguaro Cactus
What exemplifies the “Old West” more than a Saguaro cactus? Lots of things embody the Vegas mystique, like Elvis, neon signs, or a $5 million dollar megabucks jackpot, but let’s face the facts. Las Vegas, at heart, is still a pioneer town. Despite the glitz and glamour façade, Sin City borders the Great Basin to the north and the Mojave Desert to the south, and nothing says desert like the noble cactus. On the surface, a cactus looks prickly, aloof and unwelcoming, but the truth of the matters is cacti make remarkable friends and are actually very hearty plants.

The Saguaro and the Joshua tree are probably the most recognizable cactus in the world, because they are the ones you see in the old westerns. But there are, literally, hundreds of species and varieties just waiting to make a home on your kitchen windowsill or patio. And believe it or not, cactus love moderate climates even more that the harsh desert seasons.

Cactus Joe’s Blue Diamond Nursery, located right outside the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, is a treasure trove of native cactus plants, succulents, Joshua trees, ocotillos, yuccas and agaves. In addition, they have an extensive selection of outdoor yard art, rocks, glass and Native American jewelry. Let their knowledgeable staff help you pick the right plant for your location. A 1-gallon agave runs $9.99, a 3-gallon Giant Saguaro Cactus is $40, and a 5-gallon Giant Saguaro Cactus is $60.

9. Las Vegas 51s Minor League Authentic Cap and Jersey

Las Vegas 51s Minor League Authentic Cap and Jersey
Las Vegas is home to the 51s, the Toronto Blue Jays minor league baseball team, and Cashman Field is one of the local’s favorite places to spend a summer evening. The 51s play 71 home games of Triple-A baseball in the Pacific Coast League and with some kind of daily promotion going on, spending an evening under the Nevada sky is a great diversion from the chaos of the Strip.

Originally owned by the San Diego Padres, the “Stars” played their first game on April 1, 1983 to a packed house of 13,878 fans. In 2001, the Los Angeles Dodgers took over the franchise and renamed the team the 51s. With a new logo to represent the alleged aliens or extraterrestrials that have visited the semi-secret government base, known as “Area 51,” the team brought a new standard of baseball excellence to Las Vegas. In 2008, the Blue Jays took over the club.

The official jersey and cap are available at the 51s team store at Cashman Field. The team store is open 11am-4pm Tuesday – Saturday and during all home games. Jersey cost $80 and the cap is $30.

11. $10 Silver Strike from the Four Queens Hotel and Casino

$10 Silver Strike from the Four Queens Hotel and Casino
Nevada is known as the Silver State and the beauty of their mining tradition is exemplified by the Silver Strike, which was minted by most of the casinos as Limited Edition Silver Tokens. The first Silver Strikes were introduced in the Reno & Lake Tahoe in 1992 and were dispensed as a special slot machine prize in lieu of a cash jackpot. Patrons loved the shiny pure silver and brass tokens and, like any casino novelty that attracts gamblers, special slot machines were designed to pay out only silver strikes. Before long, Silver Strikes were issued with redeemable values from $2 to $300, but the $10 Strike was the most commonly found.

Hotels loved strikes because they could fashion the image or imprint on the strike to reflect their logo, a show, a restaurant, or an event, and because of their unique beauty, the recipient rarely cashed them in. When the price of silver eclipsed the $10 an ounce price, most casinos quit producing them as slot prizes, but a few still have a few Silver Strike machines on the floor. The Four Queens, the Palms, and Sam’s Town still mint limited edition commemorative $200 and $300 tokens for special occasions. Many Las Vegas collectible stores carry a limited selection of strikes, but Lost Vegas Antiques has a large selection of strikes and tokens from all of the major hotels.

12. Sin City Gallery Prints

Sin City Gallery Prints
Las Vegas is best-known for its resort hotels, lavish buffets, swimming pools, upscale shopping centers, and a menu of entertainment choices like no where else on Earth, but the fine arts have always taken a back seat to the city’s more profitable and visceral indulgences.

14. Authentic Native American Basket

Authentic Native American Basket
Long before the white man infiltrated the great American Southwest, various tribes of Native American Indians occupied the land. Some tribes migrated across the plains each year and others preferred to stay put and farm the land. But one thing they all shared was a rich tradition of respect for the Gods and Spirits that oversaw their lives.
The local Piute tribe clustered near the Colorado River and lived a peaceful life, using the bounty of the river and plants to support their needs, but other tribes, like the Apache, Hopi, and Navajo, were more industrious and are better known for their arts and crafts.

Carroll Shelby Motors
Every boy grows up dreaming of the day when he’ll drive down Main Street in his own Shelby GT350 with racing stripes emblazoned the length of the vehicle. Given Las Vegas’ love of rebels and pioneers, it’s fitting that Carroll Shelby, the automotive legend and innovator, has setup his conversion and customization factory adjacent to the Las Vegas Speedway in North Las Vegas. His showroom also serves as the Shelby museum where you can get up close to the very first Cobra CSX2000 or prototypes of the Series 1, Shelby GT-H, Terlingua, GT500KR and other classic motorcars that revolutionized the performance “Muscle Car” industry.

Get behind the wheel of the new 2012 GT350, and hear the roar as you rev the 525 HP Shelby/Whipple supercharged motor.
