Flea markets and thrift stores are often the ultimate shopping experience for those who don’t mind gently used items. Where second-hand stores were once only the province of the needy and downtrodden, such shops have undergone a huge uptake in acceptability, sales and inventory. Las Vegas flea markets frequently offer hard-to-find and unique items. Bargain hunters who make thrift stores part of their regular shopping routine are often rewarded with some amazing finds, including designer clothes at basement rates. — Mike Donahue

The two locations for Deseret Industries in Las Vegas have an astonishing variety and selection of used items for bargain hunters. The stores and inventory are clean and kept in individual divisions that could rival any department store in almost any city.

The stores sell everything from cameras and furniture to books and lawnmowers. Some of the clothing available still has original labels attached. Everything in the store is sold as is and cannot be returned. Clothing, however, can be exchanged with a sales receipt, provided the Deseret Industries tag is still attached.
