Tucson Gem Show

The 2014 Tucson Gem Show ends on Feb 16 and we finally found time to check it out.  Actually, Gerry checked it out and I guarded the car while she spent all the money.

There are over 41 sites in Tucson with gems, fossils, African art and endless other articles on exhibit and for sale.  It is one of the largest, if not the largest, gem show in the world.  There is something there for everyone from $1.00 articles to thousands of dollars.  Gerry managed to find a few bargains and also got the vendor to lower his price since it was the next to last day of the show.

She managed to take some pictures as she was hurrying around looking for bargains.  My name is on the photos, but she took all of them.

Since we had a late start and Gerry was limited on time spent checking out everything, I think we have plans on going back to the Gem show on Sunday to look for more bargains.

It was in the low 90s today and we actually had to turn on the a/c in the motor home for a while.  That is a little early for us, but we will take that over snow and ice.

That was our day, how was yours?
