Well, not me - how I wish! One of these years I'll make it down there though. Marg is busy, busy, busy planning her yearly shopping expedition to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Shows. Pearls, stones, and all sorts of other fabulous beads and treasures will be boxed up, and shipped back here. We'll get daily emails outlining her adventures of the day, and admonishments to keep our paws out of the boxes until she gets back :-)
As I'm sure many of you know. The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is not just 'one show'. The show itself lasts a couple of weeks, and takes up just about every tent/hotel/motel in the city. It's massive. Bead shows, gem shows, wholesale only, open to the public - you name it. People worldwide flock into Tucson starting the end of January. Hopefully, Marg will get a chance to blog from the show!
