    I heard a lot about the Tucson Show, and shall look into attending this event with 2018 in mind.

    DH and I will be passing through Tucson in late January - February (dates flexible), so we'll probably stop by the Tucson show and see the pretties. I'm not in the pearl business though, and I can't find anything about where better pearls will be sold to regular customers. Any ideas for me?

    Elisabeth's talk sounds so interesting and relevant - I wish we could entice her to join us at a ruckus!

    If anyone knows the names of some good venders to look for there, for customers not sellers, please share. I might stop in to the show on my way to visit a friend there but there's so much going on there it looks overwhelming.

    There are many shows and some are open to the public. Google "Tucson Gem Shows" and you should be able to find a list of shows that will explain whether they are open to the public. That said, it's hard to say how good the pearls will be. It should be fun just to experience the variety of a show.
