“Las Vegas Market has become THE industry’s top source for antiques, unique one-of-a-kind found objects, exclusive memorabilia and oddities repurposed for modern-day living,” said Pam Williams, Director of Leasing, International Market Centers. “The expansion into three Pavilions is allowing us to showcase not only a much broader selection of Discoveries resources, but also a more targeted segmentation of categories in Pavilions 2 and 3. As the leading furniture, home decor and gift destination in the western United States, Las Vegas Market is committed to presenting the most exciting and dynamic presentation of temporary merchandise to serve the shopping needs of retailers and designers alike.”
The Discoveries: Antiquities category located in 16,900-square-feet in Pavilion 2 will feature an exciting presentation of found objects, antiques, repurposed and recycled home décor, furnishings, jewelry and clothing, all available for order writing and immediate delivery.
