Taking up a second story loft, Pebbles in My Pocket oozed variety. The store has a vast selection of scrapbooking supplies, mostly organized by theme, although there was a small section organized by color. Embellishments that I would have put together, such as 3D flowers and monograms, were scattered throughout the store, almost as add-on purchases. It looks like the store's buyers purchase entire lines, so mixing and matching is easily done. There were sections for new items (incredibly up to date), seasons (Valentine's Day was well represented), Vegas tourism and clearance (50 percent off.)
A peek at the calendar showed an extensive list of upcoming classes for all skill levels. Most of the projects were incredibly attractive and looked to be worth the cost. The crop area was large, well-organized and made me want to sit down and get to work.
Pebbles is an easy drive from the north end of the strip and, although on the second story, is easily accessible via stairs or elevator.
The only bummer was that the customer service seemed to be lacking. I was never greeted by any of the three employees, nor asked through my visit if I needed help, even though I was the only customer for a period of time.
