hate to say this and I sure that I am going to offend someone but I do not mean to JMHO...but you didn't miss much. everything was over-priced and all (and I mean extreme amounts) of the Jabo made it hard to find anything else. the best marbles for sale were the very rare akros that a man had from Clarksburg. some were only know to be less than 10 known due to only being found in the digs. I couldn't afford those either but it was history. The church ladies had great food for sale very reasonable. other than that I have been to my last show.

The show was fine the weather on the other hand stunk... darn rain!

I see your fom WV you should go next year.

Every show I have ever been to has over priced stuff and I was shocked there wasnt more Jabos.

IMHO it was a good show

I thought the show was again a lot of fun. I met some new friends and I got some good deals, 12 handmades - mint -, onionskin with mica and with a yellow solid core inside, and I goofed around a missed out on a nice superman. All were priced right. I did some talking and I got every seller to drop the price, you got to haggle! It took me an hour to get that onionskin down to where I thought it was a good price. I got a really nice mint Peltier Dragon, largest I have seen, starting price $600, I am not sure who would pay that :confused-smileys-327: , not me. I got it for 1/6th the asking price. Again, it was a very large size!

I also think about the ebay prices, yea they may be a few bucks cheaper, add in the shipping and your at the same price or higher. ( JUST MY OPINION)

I place finding marbles second to meeting all the friends and making new friends. I met a very interesting and fun guy this year from California, it was a ball hanging with him. WOW, it is nice to meet folks to talk to about marbles, share mibs, laugh with, and have a "good time with". It's the people too! :cool-smileys-262:

I also like the fact that you can hold the marbles in your hand and make the condition call yourself, not relying on someone from tim-buck-two telling you mint 12.9 :fighting-163:

I don't want to beat a dead horse :deadhorse: but I vote that the people make the shows, not just find mibs.

My wife :wub: went this year and although she does not collect mibs,everything else :lol: She had a great time just wodering around talking to the folks we have seen there in the past six years.

So, next year jump on board :lol-016: and find us, we have a ball!
