Goat Feathers! Well that is where I have my booth! I always wanted one and thanks to some new friends and mentors, I do! THANK YOU GUYS! I so appreciate all of the feedback and direction! I could not have started this without you!
So a little about this place! Doc, the owner, told me that the name Goat Feathers came from his childhood! It was a place he went to all the time, to eat! Basically, the name came from another term, "horse feathers" when someone was pullin your leg or tellin a long tall story, well "Goat Feathers" was planted in "his" mind and turned into this wonderful place, 1300 Wyoming Street in quaint little Boulder City Nevada, 89005, just behind the historic Boulder City Hotel. We are located about 20 minutes from Las Vegas, and our city motto is, "A World Away in a Day."
Goat Feathers used to be the Boulder Dam Laundry when they were building the dam. est 1948. It is a whopping 8000 square feet of fun fun fun! You can stay in there all day, and still not see everything! He and his manager, Cheryl has done an awesome job of picking antiques and history and placing it just so to wrap you up and it takes you back to when you grew up!
Kitchen cleaning things, BonAmi, old time wash boards, old laundry tubs, you name it it's there! I lose myself in there! There is old time candy, and soda pops in bottles! Rock Candy on the stick, the wax bottle candy, remember those! WOW! Everywhere you walk you listen to 40' 50' 60' music and black and white tv programs playing everywhere. If you peeked in you might see me dancin to TEQUILA! LOL, I'm sorry to keep saying this, but it is a BLAST and just an AWESOME place to visit again and again as it is a living place, keeps changing on a daily basis!
Last Tuesday, 19 April 2011, we had a potluck and I got to meet some of the vendors. What a great bunch! We had wonderful food, of course I had seconds! OH MY! Now I need recipes! Maybe a Goat Feathers Potluck Recipe Book is in the offing?
The manager Cheryl, and the owner Doc and all the vendors are just wonderful! I really feel at home there! I've made some nice friends, so thank you Doc, Cheryl, Niki, Judy, Sarah Jane, Vicky,Cherie and Garylene, just to name a few! You guys are the BEST!
