Tucson Bound

Whohoo- It's that time again. Tucson, Arizona is home to the biggest most fabulous bead, gem, rock, and jewelry shows. Some people may think of it as one show, but in fact it's made up of many, many shows. There are wholesale only shows, retail shows, shows with both retail and wholesale, and some where you need specific jeweler credentials to get in (the ones with the tables full of fine precious gems)

Marg is off as of now. Her flight was leaving this morning, and she'll be there for close to a week I think (I forgot to ask when she'd be back). Hopefully, she'll get lots of pictures, and get updates from some of our many friends who are either going down shopping - or have exhibits.

Fun, fun, fun!

I found a couple of video's on Youtube from last year which shows a little of the scope, and extravagance of the shows. I was surprised to not find very many. It could have been my search though....

I have arrived in Tucson. It's a balmy 17C out and the locals are all bundled up in their parkas and gloves.

The first big wholesale show opens tomorrow and I'll be there bright and early to grab the best of the new stuff. Tonight I'm sitting and studying the inch-thick Tucson Show Guide to see who's here.
