Hour 5 -BlogAPalooza
Get hooked up with ghetto lifestyle accessories. I spent a few formative years living in the hood of NoPo so a visit to the Discount mall is a walk down memory lane when my best friend and I shopped aisles like these because we did not have the money for the real mall.
The Fantastik Indoor Swapmeet is the largest in Las Vegas. Hundreds of booths with all different kinds of merchandise. A great stop to rest from the heat every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
At the Craig Discount Mall on the corner of Craig and Decatur you can have a ghetto-fab shopping experience like no other. Tributes to Tu-Pac and Big E painted on velvet at affordable prices to decorate your crib. Perhaps you were wondering to yourself where does a person find a painting of raps artists large enough to fit over my couch. This mall has the hook up!
Not just art stay for the furniture too. Like mirrors on everything? Did you need a slip cover blanket with a giant green leaf for the couch? They have it!

Bling never goes out of style. All the pundits are endorsing gold as an investment why not wear yours where no one is going to take it from you.
Do you miss clothing straight from Tijuana? All of your favorite party dresses from Mexican party marts are here to make your don’t get too close to the birthday candle or you will light up in flames dreams come true.
