Seattle Marble Show


Recommended Posts

I can't wait for the Seattle show and go to the Glass museum and watch students work. They have about 7 ovens. They tell you all about what there doing and about the different tempatures the glass is while working on it. Can't wait to see all my marble heads......Steve

The Tacoma Glass Museum is just down the road a few miles from the show hotel. If you have not been there, it is a treat. Besides the museum itself and the glass work area, there is a bridge going over the highway to the Museum that has Chihuly glass items in the ceiling- amazing. Here's one pic of the bridge ceiling and two (very poor but you get the idea) of the glass making area.

PLus, it'll be a great marble show, too! Where is this Crab Pot, Galen? Sounds good!

tupelo:

(lol) that look I know.

I cant display many marbles because I give so many to the kids that stop by.

Turn your back and a 1" mint MFC goes missing or gets into a game (lol)

so I keep most/all put up so there is no confusion.

But priceless is the look

and hell the MFC really did want in the game. (lol)

heck no! go for it. it's tons of fun! we left about 10 marbles in odd places that day. we also have ones that are large printed with the IAMC logo we leave as well. :-) who knows, could be found by a future marble collector! but I have to say, the look on kids faces when they find them and you can watch is priceless. we gave out a lot of jabos last vegas show too, handed them to little kids(with parents ok of course) and it was a blast. it's like you handed them gold. lots of smiles that day!

Funny we were at the Crab Pot in Rancho Mirage last weekend for the first time and ordered some feast that they just spred out on the table and everybody pulled from the center (not like monkey brains) anyway call me old fashion but I like my food on a plate. Let go to a great spot for scalops and lobster...sorry for all the misspelings.....I'm so anxious...

Love these stories. I am new to collecting but this sort of thing is what hooked me. All the "freebies" included by sellers, giving away marbles, and best yet, hiding them in the park for others to find. I have the same compulsion-to give away perfectly nice marbles to people, just trying to make their day. I like to send little evenvelopes to my nephews-makes their day and mine. It's great to share marbles! Which is crazy cause I don't have many and want them all too!
