We’re holding our Spring Gem, Jewelry, Mineral, and Fossil Show on April 30 and May 1 from 10 AM to 5 PM at EVELYN GREER PARK, 8200 SW 124 Street in the Village of Pinecrest – just one block off US 1 with plenty of free parking. Admission is $4 – children under 12 admitted free (with paid adult admission).
There will be exhibits, displays, demonstrations, raffles, and vendors showcasing mineral & fossil specimens, gemstones, fine jewelry, and artisan-crafted collectibles. Children’s activities include jewelry-making sessions, surprise grab-bags, gem prospecting, and geode splitting.
Also, this upcoming show will feature the sale of many more specimens, supplies, and equipment items (similar to those that sold so well at our last Tri-County Picnic). Yes, we’re talking cabbing machines, trim saws, faceting machines, flat laps, tumblers, Foredom tools, and much more. Some of the smaller items will simply be available for outright purchase on Club Display Tables throughout the Show. The larger items will be available for inspection all day Saturday as well as Sunday morning. We’ll start accepting silent auction bids at 2 PM Sunday, and bidding will close by 2:30 PM. Winning bidders may pay by cash or check – all sold items must be removed by 5:00 PM.
