As the shows draw to a close, I have to say it's been a fun and interesting week here in Denver. Our reason for coming was to attend the 46th Annual Gem, Fossil and Mineral Show, as both buyer and seller. Although there were shows in various locations throughout the week here, we were sharing space outdoors at the Denver Coliseum with some wonderful Mexican mining friends from September 7th to the 15th.
Friday morning showed some partial clearing, but left us with a puddle the size of a small lake in front of our tables.
And that brings us to this morning, Sunday, the last day of the shows. Did it rain today? Yes. All day. But it gave us the opportunity to attend the indoor part of the coliseum show, along with our new friend Kim who we met earlier this week, and we had a great day. I continued to be wowed by the fossils. Here's the head and tusks of a wooly mammoth from the Ice Age,
Tomorrow morning we will go back to pick up our table, help our friends to pack up, and start the journey to our next destination, Wisconsin. Although the weather proved to be a real challenge to selling outdoors, we are so grateful for the opportunity to be here. We reached our goal to both buy new material and sell some of our treasures, and it was very satisfying, indeed.
I send you a ton of good wishes for a happy, healthy and productive week. Good night and sweet dreams!
