Hi Wayne, this is not the appropriate venue to sell finished items. Everyone who does art shows makes their own artwork and on this forum, makes their own jewelry.

I am looking for some ideas on how best to transport and display jewelry.  I presently store my work in zip lock bags so I have to unzip each bag and place the pieces out on various jewlery display forms.  this is extremely time consuming and makes for a very long set up and bread down.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to storew, transport and display jewelry?  I really want to simplify this process!

It was, and I was able to turn some of my purchases over at the event I was going to and I make about half of what I spent back. 

I had my husky with me.  He did not like Arizona.  No grass, and no Trees!  He held it longer than he should have.  Rocks, sand and cactus didn't appeal to him a lot.

Thanks Jeanne, That's exactly my plan.  Is there a certain area  I should be looking in?

Cynthia - If you are going with a group or significant other, you might want to look into a renting a house or condo. I was lucky to stay with my sister this year, but would like my husband to join me for an extended stay next year. I'd love to have him around for exploring the area. And with extra time my shopping can be done at a less frantic pace.

Sounds like an adventure Caireen!  I won't be camping that's for sure.  I hope the shopping was worth the arrgivation...???

Thanks Cassandra,

I'm starting to investigate lodging now.  I know what you mean by sensory overload,  I still experience it each time I go to a gem show....Love it!! for now.

I went by Tucson one year on my way to an event near Phoenix.  My plan had been to find a camp ground and to pitch my tent (I was camping at the event, I was headed to).  It decided to storm that night, so I slept in my car in the back of the parking lot at the Holidome. 

I then finished my shopping and stopped in Casa Grande.  It was hard to even find a room there, that I could afford.

Make a room reservation as soon as the hotels let you as many rooms are rented to vendors as sales rooms. The first year I went I planned on staying 4 days but the morning of the third day I was driving to a show and just pulled the car over and said to myself...I can't do this anymore! My senses were on such overload I had to quit! LOL. Go to so you can plan ahead and find out what credentials you need.
