This past weekend, 12/3 and 12/4, I participated in Suffolk County’s Gem & Mineral Show. I love doing this show. There are gems, minerals, fossils, meteorites, jewelry and lots of great people. Rock hounds are fascinating people, after all, they like rocks! I was able to share a space with a lovely lady, Carolyn, who sold chains, beads, cabs and jewelry and we chatted away and watched each others tables when necessary.
One of the nicest things about this particular show was that it was held in my own town and I was able to take 30 minutes to drive home, feed my puppy, let him out, eat something and get back to the fair. Many of my visitors and customers were people whom I have know for some time and came to support me. Wow, is that great or what! Some were past customers who came back for more – awesome.
I sold lots of jewelry, took special orders, and connected with old and new friends. Can’t wait for the next one.
