Tucson Report from Magical Delights

March 24, 2014

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.


Jean and Her New Hat

We then got to work and set up the shop.

Holly stopped by to say hello and people began showing up.

The set up was in the same area as last year,

Here is a Person Taking a Photo of the Tables Across From Us


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 is a shot of Vicjon at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show

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.

Once again I saw the vermillion fly catcher and tried to get a picture.

…and here is another shot of the Vermillion Fly Catcher.

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.

As always you can see more on our Website at www.MagicalDelights.com and you can see our show schedule page at MagicalDelights.om

Meet Dave Toule – Our New Local Rock Friend

August 22, 2012

A little while back, we met a man who had stones – Dave Toule


Dave Toule of Merrill Wisconsin

– and his working partner Bob.  They found what they believe to be Garnets (in a really strange formation)


Raw Garnet

and Jade of different kinds, all from the Northern Part of Wisconsin and some of the U.P. of Michigan.


Raw Jade

Dave has a store front in Merrill where he has a bunch of rocks and minerals from around the area including Palio-Stone Tools, Raw Copper, Silver and other interesting mineral oddities.


Raw Copper

Dave and Bob will be leaving for Denver in a couple of weeks to see what kind of response they get from the World-Wide Rock People.  They will be attending the Denver Gem and Mineral Show in Denver Colorado, September 11th – 15th.

Magical Delights will also be heading out to Denver for the Denver Gem and Mineral Show to pick up some materials for making more of our Handcrafted Jewelry Designs.

Often when we are going to the Denver Gem and Mineral Show in the Fall, or Tucson Gem and Mineral Show in the Early Spring, we ask our customers if there is anything in particular that you are interested in, please let us know and we will see if we can find some of it there.

Speaking of events – Magical Delights will be appearing this weekend  Saturday and Sunday, August 25 and 26, 2012 in Downtown Green Bay Wisconsin for Artstreet.  Magical Delights looks forward to seeing all of our customers past, present and future!! this weekend!!  Stop out to see Magical Delights Handcrafted Jewelry Designs to see our great Signature, One of a Kind Gemstone and Mineral Jewelry Creations.

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!!

From Huffman Shows to Christmas!! Merry Christmas One and All!!

December 20, 2011

It’s been a whirlwind Autumn for Magical Delights…now its settled down a bit so I can tell you about Villa Park, Omaha and next week about my Crystal Surgery Class at Four Winds in Cincinnati.

The Huffman Shows in Villa Park, November 3rd thru 6th was two weeks earlier than it has been for many years which…I think confused many of the customers that came from further away. 

Our friend Paul Happip was there…

We were all happy…

The Show was otherwise. normal.

One of our First Flame of Ishtar™ Customers was there, though!

Two  weeks later, November 17th thru 20th I went to Omaha to do the show there.

It has been become a very mixed show…

Magical Delights was not next to this…


Magical Delights Booth

Magical Delights was surrounded by crafty stuff, which made our stuff look cheap.


Omaha Show


More Omaha Vendors


More Omaha Vendors

I had an interesting conversation with a profession colleague, Tim James of Pendragon .  He was visiting Omaha and saw Omaha and saw I was at the show so he stopped by. 


Even More Omaha Vendors

More Yet, Omaha Vendors

More Yet, Omaha Vendors

He was really surprised by the extreme amount of buy/sell jewelry and also by the abundance of buy/sell wood and craft pieces, we knows the distributor who is a friend of his.  This is not how the show is portrayed.

Consequently, Omaha was not a good show for us so…I will not be back there but will look for a Art Fair there in the summer.
We are working fast and furious on items to take with us to Tucson in February, so that will keep us pretty busy until then.  We added lots a new stuff to the website and sold quite a bit at Christmas and have replaced those also so the selection is great!!  Stop on over to see what we have at www.magicaldelights.com.

Magical Delights at St James Court in Louisville Kentucky

November 17, 2011

During the first part of October, Magical Delights went to do a New Art Fair (for us that is) in Louisville, Kentucky called St James Court Art Show.  The show is a really large event that has been in existence for 50 years.


Customers at St James Court in Louisville Kentucky

I was told by the customers that the schools are even closed, city wide, during the show.  The St James Court Show Art Show is usually mentioned among the top Art and Crafts Shows in the US.


Historic Buildings in Louisville Kentucky

It is held in a picturesque neighborhood in Central Louisville.
