Warm weather season is right around the corner which means vacationers will be flocking to Las Vegas for catching a tan, winning big and spotting celebrities. So, where are the best places to see stars (and we’re not taking in the desert sky)?
According to Vegas.com, since celebrities love to shop, Vegas’ luxury malls are excellent for celeb-watching. In particular, Caesars Palace Forum Shops offers all the high end designer brands celebs crave like Louis Vuitton and Gucci, plus there is one store devoted to stars, and the famous love it, too.
Antiquities International is a 3,400 square foot space of autographs, memorabilia and novelties featuring icons and legends of movies, TV, music, history and politics. Owner Toby Stoffa has been in the antique and autograph business for nearly three decades and has made strong connections with collectors all over the world. Her world renowned inventory changes all the time, but is the only place to find documents signed by presidents along with AC/DC autographed guitars.
This incredible store is more like a museum, and while you could spend hours just perusing the amazing artifacts, Antiquities is also a great place to see live celebs. Infamous baseball legend, Pete Rose, actually signs autographs in the store a few times a month, and icons Loni Anderson and Ernest Borgnine also made an appearance, recently.
Hundreds of stars clove the store and buy Stoffa’s antiques like refurbished candy and cigarette machines, signed Beatles albums, autographed movie posters of their heroes, and many of the more expensive items like Marilyn Monroe’s framed dress.
Some famous patrons include; Bruce Willis, Ron Jeremy, Laura Croft from Holly’s World, Axl Rose, and probably the most famous long-time customer, Michael Jackson. In fact, Stoffa and Jackson became friends and he frequented the store for private shopping sprees where he would spend up to $40,000.
So, the next time you’re in Vegas, check out Antiquities in the Caesars Palace Forum Shops, while you’re admiring their beautifully framed celeb memorabilia you may just meet one in the flesh!http://www.vegas.com/traveltips/guide/peoplewatcher.html
