Who's Going To Northeast Marble Show (Marlborough)


Recommended Posts

I'm planning to be there Friday. I'm in France this week and I'm glad there are very few marble to be had here as I've not gotten a chance to even "get off the farm". Scheduled return flight through Boston. It has always been one of my favorite shows. Kudos to Bert for all the work he has done for so many years. Bill

Hello Bill,

I told you that marbles are hard to find in France :( I have no idea why. Perhaps German people and France people were not the best friends in the period that the handmade marbles were produced in Germany.

But at least you saved some money for the marbles show ;-)

We had a great show yesterday. I'll post some images in a little while.

I haven't gotten a final count from Bert yet, but I'm estimating that there were about 200-225 that walked through the door, maybe a little more. A lot of faces I haven't seen there before.

Finally got to meet idigjars! Yea!
