Kids: the #1 reason to stay for the TGMS Show!

I was going through my Tucson Gem Show photos and found some that I haven't posted! This is from the great day I spent with the FAB Jeweler, Maureen Brusa Zappellini (BZap), of Cosmo's Moon, and her charming son Cosmo.

The scene - the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show - this is the show produced by the Tucson Gem & Mineral Society and the show that started it all!!! It started as a public show and has remained a public show...however the vendors will accept wholesale orders from eligible buyers.

This is what makes the "public" shows a "must do" for find the nicest vendors...they truly inspire the next generation of gem and mineral collectors...

This woman spent quite a while talking to Cosmo and answering his questions about beads and gems! ...can I get a collective - AWWWWWW!

...and then there is the hallway of schools and organizations - this was a display from the US Forestry Dept. - kids could do rubbings of fossils!

You might be interested in the theme for the TGMS Show for 2011 - Minerals of California! See you there:
