Returning Home From Tucson

Ok.  So now it’s Mid March close to the Ides, and Magical Delights has returned from 4 lovely weeks in Tucson. The first thing we did was buy Jean a hat to protect her from the sun on our hike.

We then got to work and set up the shop.

we will be moving in 2015 to The Pueblo Gem Show, mainly because I think it will be a better venue for Magical Delights – with fewer big stone dealers, more gems and jewelry “more our style”.

Here are some great Amethyst Cathedrals that we saw.

While we were there we had a nice place to stay – complete with our own back yard.  I like it so much that I just had to sit there and take in all in – complete with a photo including my feet.

Over all we had a good show and the weather held up. We saw the Ogijeski’s and added to the stone blog – http://stonepie.blogspot.com/ which we hope will be ongoing.

Our next upcoming shows are the Victory of Light in Cincinnati OH and the Edge Life Expo in Fargo ND.

Although, I do not have the exact items that Scoop is offering this weekend in Fairhope, there are many that are not exact, but using the Magical Delights Creative Style, are on display there.  I meant to take photos of the very items, but alas, he had packed up and was off just as I was arriving at the store.  No time for anything but to wish safe travels and good weather!!
