In just a few weeks the city of Tucson will be brimming with rock and mineral collectors from all around the world to enjoy the world’s largest, and most fantastic, gem and mineral show you can ever imagine! It is really an exciting time for everyone here in Tucson and I personally have been quietly waiting all year for it to finally get here. I can’t hardly wait to get out and see all the amazing rocks, gems, jewelry, beads, and so much more – and to get to visit with all my wonderful rock collector friends from the U.S. and around the world. I’m sure looking forward to adding a plethora of fabulous new rocks to my already overstuffed shop, house, and yard!
Also, as an added bonus, my two dear Australian friends Darren and Keith will be staying with me for the duration of the shows. We’re going to have tons of fun out shopping, visiting, and going on fossicking (rock collecting) trips around the southwest. I will do my best to try to document most of the festivities here in the blog and to take lots of fun photos to share with everyone, especially the folks who aren’t able to attend the show.
I hope that everyone has a great time at the show, and if you have traveled some distance, that you are safe in your journey here and on your return home.
