Although there is a kind of old west look to Quartzsite, almost if
not all of the selling locations are parts of organized shows which
will charge you a fee for your space. You would be well served to
make arrangements in advance as some, or all, of the spaces will be
sold out well in advance of the show dates. In addition, it is my
understanding that the state of Arizona does like to get their cut
so you will need to obtain a temporary business and sellers permit
and collect sales tax on what you sell. The show organizer will
help with this problem.
Check in the Lapidary Journal, Rock and Gems, and Colored Stones
magazines for show dates and contact They all have
listings of shows.
