Inside the expansive, air conditioned facility there are dozens of dealers, both wholesale and retail. The variety of items for sale include rough rock, finished fine jewelry, faceting rough, minerals, fossils, beads, loose gemstones, cabochons, pearls, carvings, crystals, spheres and much more. There are certainly items of interest for even the most eclectic of collectors. Several artisans are able to do work for you on the premises. This includes wire wrapping, stone setting, bead stringing and general jewelry repair.
Our dealer pool is extensive. We have dealers from almost every state in the U.S. as well as abroad. Many are source dealers, i.e. they are the miners, producers or manufacturers. These folks work long, difficult hours to share their passion. We are certain that this attention to detail shows. Every year we have a list of mini seminars, demonstrations and classes hosted by our dealers. Several are free, others have a nominal fee to help cover expenses. For a list of current classes and seminars, click here.
There is also a "tailgating" area and tent city outside the facility during the summer show in August. Here is where you can certainly find some amazing deals. There are literally tons of bargains to be found.
Camping and RVs are permitted overnight for a nominal charge. There are limited electric hook ups only. There is no water or dumping station. It is wise to contact the Expo Center early to reserve a spot as they fill up quickly. Clean restrooms and showers are available.
