COLLEEN'S CLASSIC CONSIGNMENT LABOR DAY SALE

Update August 28, 2017  Colleen's Classic Consignment is getting ready for its Labor Day Sale, and they now have a quarterly drawing for a $500 store credit.

To enter the drawing and to read the rules about the drawing, click here. You will be signed up for the store's email list. One entry per email address.

Colleen's Classic Consignment has four locations in the Las Vegas area and it is known for its large selection of gently used furniture for bedrooms, living rooms, offices and patio. But what many shoppers don't realize is that about half of the merchandise for sale is new sample furniture from the World Market Center in Las Vegas which houses wholesalers and manufacturer's representatives in the furniture industry. These high quality furniture samples can give your home a unique look at an exception value price.

If you want to consign your furniture to Colleen's Classic Consignment you should know that there is a 50-50 split on the selling price. They do not carry appliances or electronic items or clothing. If you are buying furniture ask them about their financing options.

Be sure you sign up for their emails because they send out valuable discount coupons on new merchandise (consignments are not eligible) and there are also alerts about special sales and arrivals.

Their 20% off Senior Discount Day is now on Sunday. You must be 55 or older and the discount does not apply to consignment items.

ELIPHINO DIVE AND DINE

Update June 23, 2017  We don't usually endorse bars but this one deserves a mention.  Eliphino Dive and Dine is a locals bar that is smoke-free. There is free parking. The Eliphino Dive and Dine is at 3246 East Desert Inn Road. Call them at 702-499-6503 for information and their entertainment schedule. They are planning on adding a kitchen for regular food service soon.

HABITAT RESTORE ON FLAMINGO IN EAST LAS VEGAS

Update June 14, 2017  There are several Habitat ReStores in the Las Vegas area including one on Flamingo in East Las Vegas where I noticed a counter-top sign offering various daily discounts. It seems there is a discout or two every day of the week for 15% and some of these discounts can be combined. There are also discounts that are not listed and can pop up at any time.

There is a photo of a countertop discount sign at the Flamingo store below. I like the discount for shoppers who are members of casino players' clubs. That means just about anyone and everyone can get at least 15% off shopping here because anyone can get a free players' club account at local casinos.

offers various daily discounts. They vary daily.

The Las Vegas area Habit ReStores benefit by getting donations from various trade shows including furniture shows that have exhibitions in the Vegas showrooms, hotels and convention centers.

THIS OFFER FROM THE MOB MUSEUM ISN'T A CRIME

Update June 4, 2017  About a week ago I visited the Mob Museum in downtown Las Vegas and I came away thinking it was one of the better values in town. It is a self-guided tour which gives you plenty of time to read the signs and displays and to take in the entire experience.

There were some interactive exhibits as well including a chance to sit down and record your own confessions about knowing mobsters -- but I didn't see anyone doing it. There was also a replica of an electric chair that you could sit in, and a nearby switch that could be thrown -- but I didn't see anyone sit in it. There is a chair from a gas chamber but it's kept behind glass.

There are plenty of places to take photos. I took a photo in front of an authentic piece of the brick wall where mobsters were executed in the St. Valentine's Day Massacre.

It is not an expensive museum tour and you can easily spend a couple of hours or longer taking in all of the exhibits. Parking was not expensive -- and lower than what some of the Strip casinos are charging these days. You could, in fact, park at a nearby downtown Vegas casino and walk to the Mob Museum. The museum also accepts various memberships for discounts such as AAA and students and seniors.

A pleasant surprise was getting a bonus coupon (see the photo below) for some free play at the nearby El Cortez Casino and a buy one, get one free mobster burger at their 24-hour restaurant. I got only $5 of free play (the minimum) but my bacon-cheeseburger (it had a mob-themed name which I forgot) was probably the best I've had in a long, long time. My friend also raved about the free burger that come along. The 24-hour restaurant was also very attractive, clean, and service was excellent. The free burger in effect paid for one museum admission.

SAHARA HEALTH CARE PROVIDES A UNIQUE SERVICE IN THE LAS VEGAS AREA

Update May 4, 2016  Sahara Health Care offers chiropractice care so that patients can get pain relief including relief of back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions that originate from the spine. The chiropractic care at Sahara Health Care can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve better total health. But Sahara Health Care offers something unique in the Las Vegas area -- it offers Digital Motion X-ray services.

Digital Motion X-ray can be used to diagnose injuries, including injuries sustained during car accidents such as whiplash, that cannot be diagnosed or detected or confirmed by an MRI or a CAT scan. For this reason, you don't want to settle any claims for an auto accident or any other accident until you are tested with a Digital Motion X-ray at Sahara Health Care. If your accident lawyer doesn't know about Sahara Health Care and its Digital Motion X-ray tell your lawyer about them.

Digital Motion X-ray, also known as DMX Technology, can diagnose and identify ligament injuries as well as TMJ disorders. Finally there is science to identify the source of your pain. Finally there is a way to prove to insurance companies that your pain is real. It is done with DMX Technology.

Dr. Allan Long and his professional staff give you the professional care you need. They can also help you with whiplash injuries and treatments.
