01/28/2017 - Tucson, AZ
Class: Shopping with Dale! 8:30am-7:30pm
Jan 27-Feb 4, 2017 I will be teaching a variety of Traditional Wire Jewelry Classes at The Tucson Bead Show Location: Suite 112 Radisson Suites, 6555 E Speedway Blvd. Classes are limited to 10 seats. Register early!
Knowing that there are in excess of 40 gem shows going on in Tucson every February, how many of them have you actually visited? Or do you find yourself going to the same shows and vendors every year because your time is limited and you don’t know where else to go?
Do you know how to shop wisely for gemstones? Or how to politely barter with a vendor? Which one has the best value for your money?
We will begin the day by meeting in my classroom, Suite 112 where we will run through the day’s itinerary and then load into a large windowed van and head out to go shopping together!
Our first vendor visit will have a Complimentary Brunch for us, during which you will discover how to use the Tucson Show Guide, learn how to take advantage of the Free Tucson Show Shuttles, and how to plan your shopping days to be the most productive ever!
Armed with exclusive “Vendor Discount Coupons” (only available through my “Shopping Classes”) our day of exploring the gem shows will end at a very special booth (with some of the most gorgeous cabochons you have ever seen) where we will enjoy Special Complimentary Refreshments while learning how the stones are chosen and then cut, and hear amazing legends and lore regarding rocks and minerals.
The class fee is $120 per person. This class is comfortably limited to 10 students; special arrangements have been made with an awesome selection of vendors who have agreed to chat with us about their special products and have authorized me to create special discount coupons for each student to use while they are shopping in Tucson.
No children under age 12 please. Wear comfortable walking shoes!
Cancellation policy: NO refunds will be given after January 13, 2017.
