Tucson Rock and Gem Show in AZ

I am in AZ right now for a few days and went to the very well acclaimed Tucson Rock and Gem show. It runs for 2 weeks right in the heart of Arizona and it was even more amazing than I could imagine! We only could make it for 1 day this trip, and it just wasn't enough time to go through even a quarter of it. There were people from all over the world, with the most amazing talents and collections. We bought Herkimer Diamonds from NY, beads from China and India, coins from Rome and Scotland, rocks from AZ, intricately beaded necklaces form India. It was so much and so little time.

We've decided to try and make this a yearly trip and to take at least a minimum of 2-3 days to go through it. There are Thousands of booths, dozens of hotels and pavilions with booths as well. We met people from all over the world and from close to home. There was a food booth that drove up from Spokane WA to just sell food, hopefully it was worth the drive!

All in all it was a wonderful experience, one I hope to repeat next year. Now that I have a small idea of what to expect, hopefully I can plan better as how to attack the masses.
