Hi, I live in Tucson and have been doing the show for years, it seems
to grow, there are more promoters and more locations every year. This
year the show seemed to loose its feel. I was very surprised by some
of the pricing, what I had bought the year before had quadrupled its
price, and example, pearls, I usually try and buy a couple of kilos of
them to see through the 6 months that I have to wait around for it to
come back, there is nothing like picking them out in person! well I
was shocked, the same pearl, not better nor worst off was 2400 a kilo
when last year I bought them for 600 a kilo. Same supplier too. I had
bought some pretty 9mm-11mm potatos for 24 a strand and this year they
were 89.00. strange.
Anyway back to my idea on the show. I heard off and on at the show
that they were thinking of doing it at the Pima County Fair
Grounds…I know this is wishful thinking on everyones part, because
that would cut out some promoters and kill their shows but it would be
much nicer for the seller and for ourselves because we could find our
seller at the only show in town.
It is really unfortunate for the sellers, because they get nickled
and dimed by having to be in multiple places and some of them move
around to 5 shows! That is very expensive! plus it makes it hard on
the customer. It would be nice, but I don’t see it happening the
promoters would be screaming and kicking
Anyway Hi everyone!
