Gem & Mineral Show

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.

  2. Congrats on such a successful show, Zoraida! It is an amazing thing that happens from year to year when old customers and acquaintances start building up in size. It’s like “old home week”!

    Thanks Diane. It is great to have old customers come back and tell me they love the jewelry they had bought from me. It’s a real ego booster.
