    In 2009, my first trip to Vegas, I stayed at Excalibur. Somewhere in the hotel/casino was a small stand or shop that had miniature neon signs, and I bought one that said "Texas Hold 'Em" and had 2 playing cards as part of the design. A few years ago, it was broken while the house was being cleaned. I have yet to see something similar in my return trips, and thus, have the following questions:

    What hard to find souvenirs have you found in Vegas, or what souvenirs in general have you found to take home with you?


    Has anyone seen neon signs such as what I described somewhere? I'd be interested in having places to check out during my upcoming trip in July. It was maybe a foot tall or so, not huge, just a fun little neon sign that always made me think of Las Vegas and my favorite game there, poker! :evillaugh

    There's quite a few of that size on ebay, although a foot tall isn't exactly mini (I searched for texas hold'em miniature neon sign, it returned quite a few large bar signs that aren't what you're looking for). Some have stands, others can be wall-mounted.

    Do a search for the ABC Store. There are several in the area including the Fashion Show Mall.
