As for jewelry, can I just be obnoxious here and say that I am rather disappointed at the jewels at some of the traveling shows. And yes, I do get that prices are going up (big time) but is that any reason to sell buyers cheap crappola? Just sayin'.
When I go to a show I want to still see high quality beads, gems and findings and not be overwhelmed by stones that are clearly the dust from the bottom of of the stone mine and glued together to then look like a newly discovered stone? (see chalk turquoise, low-grade azurite).

I suppose I will be looking at that for a while now, lol.
