Boulder City is a place of many destinations.
People visit the city to eat in restaurants, participate in special events, learn about history and enjoy small town life. They also come to buy antiques in one of the many shops in town.
To help shoppers unearth vintage and collectibles, the Boulder City Review has compiled a list, in no particular order, of some of the best Dam antique stores in town.

This store has two floors of wall-to-wall antiques, rare gifts and other items for sale from different vendors. It also offers books, clothing, vinyl records, furniture, kitchenware, glassware, and handmade items.
“We have new items (and) handcrafted antiques,” said Margene West of Goatfeathers. “I think that’s why we are doing pretty well because there is such variety. “
West said the company had been in Boulder City for about 20 years. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.

She started the business in December as a pop-up Christmas market, then revamped it in January.
