Gem & Mineral Shows

The Gem Shop is going to be all over the country at shows this weekend!  One of the shows we are headed to this weekend is the Chippewa Valley Gem & Mineral Society Show in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.  The show is at the Eau Claire County Expo Center.  Slabs, equipment, and interesting home decor items are among the great products we will have on hand.  This show is a retail show, so bring the family for a day of discovering new and interesting rocks and minerals. Come and meet the rock doctor who will help identify your rocks.  The best part is that this show is FREE!  The show runs from Saturday, April 26th 9am - 5pm to Sunday, April 27th 10am - 4pm.  
     The Gem Shop will also be exhibiting at the G&LW Show - West Springfield.  The show is at the Eastern States Expo in Springfield, Massachusetts, and we will be exhibiting in Booth 8.  A new selection of cabochons, specimens, and our kid's kits are a few things we will have in our booth.  We will also have a variety of new rough rock such as Prehnite, Ruby in Kyanite, and Inca Agate.  This show is a wholesale only show and a tax i.d. number is required.  The show runs from Friday, April 25th 10am - 6pm and Saturday, April 26th from 10am - 3pm.   For more information on these shows or the rest of our show schedule, check out our show page:  http://thegemshop.com/pages/shows
      Our store in Cedarburg will also be open normal business hours.  Come enjoy a day digging through our backyard full of rough rock!  After finding some treasures at our store relax at one of Downtown Cedarburg's excellent restaurants or coffee shops.  So if you are in the area of one of our shows or our hometown, we hope to see you this weekend!
