February is a terrific month in Arizona artists. We get the Tucson Gem Show, The Arizona State Button Show and Valentines Day is our statehood anniversary.
This year I traveled to Tucson with friends. Altho the two week show is held in over 40 venues, we focused on The Gem Mall, Holidome, Jogs and Kents Tools.
It’s terrific to see the same vendors in the same locations with new inventory & choices. It makes hunting less stressful. I always bring a large rolling suitcase as the stones are quite heavy. I don’t go where they sell diamonds and the guards have huge guns. I can’t wait until next year.
Happy bead hunting, Leah
