Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Sure, Las Vegas is full of world-class shopping. Visitors make it a point to do some shopping between gambling, dining out and hitting the clubs. And while it can seem like Las Vegas has everything you could possibly imagine when it comes to stocking your closet, we'd like to shed a little light on some other cities. After all, what are you supposed to do on a weekend out of town — not shop?

Racked LA generously provided a list of ten stores that will give us a run for our money, in more than one sense. Pop into TenOverSix for playful and fashion-forward clothes, shoes and accessories. Hit up recently reopened Céline for "it" accessories. Plan your vacation around the Rose Bowl Flea Market for more than 2,500 vintage and antiques vendors. Or head to mini-department store Opening Ceremony for the who's who of high-end, left-of-center fashion.

We're certain you'll head home with something you couldn't find in Las Vegas. All ten stores are in handy map form after the jump.
