2015 Treasures of The Earth (TOTE) Show Schedule
Tote shows are one of the most visible activities of the GMSVP. At these show the GMSVP holds public workshops and demonstrates lapidary and jewelry making techniques. Most of the operating costs of the GMSVP is supported by money from cutting and selling geodes at shows. This is also where many members discovered our club. The TOTE show is a great place to learn more and to expand your collection. Come out and join in the fun. We will be cutting geodes, the cabbing machines will be set up, and we will demonstrate lots of other things.
