Received the official news today along with a refund check for our table fees from the Carlton Conty Gem & Mineral Club. This would have been our third time there which is also the 3rd anniversary of our first ever show. I suspect the entire year is over in terms of show, although I know a few will persist.
The good folks who put on this show annually must really be disappointed, it has become a statewide attraction and a lot of fun. As a small dealer, I will always appreciate the opportunity events like this offer me a chance to grow my little business and knowledge. A great learning as well as business event to which I look forward to next July 17 & 18, 2021
Until then, Joanies Rocks will pursue other ways of making our wares available and acquiring new inventory.
One such venue is Plantique Garden Center 5152 Hiwataha Ave, the hardest to find such store in Minneapolis. There Joanies Rocks has some nice selections that otherwise would have been on the show circuit.
Plantiques hours can be quirky, but they are usually open Thursday, Friday & Saturday’s from 10-3. A major public works project has completely blocked the street in front of the store but street parking is available on either side. Safe friendly neighborhood.
We will eventually take orders off the website, and anyone so inclined is invited to contact us by email.
