Ready for a serious shot of retail therapy?
The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show starts today– January 28, 2012. The Gem Show is clearly one of the best reasons to live in Tucson. The Gem Show is actually several shows taking place over the course of the next few weeks. Some of the shows are wholesale and others are retail, and different shows start and stop on different days. There are so many shows spread around Tucson that the organizers will even shuttle you around. Check the official Gem Show guide (here)for links to individual shows.
Two of my favorite places to go are the African Art Village and the hotels along Interstate 10. (The Holidome show is also very good, but you need a business licence to get in.) Below are a couple of videos that I shot at the 2011 Gem Show.
