TIPS WHEN ATTENDING A MARBLE SHOW

 

A marble show is the best place to learn about marbles and to buy marbles. Marble Collectors are amongst the friendliest collectors around.

 

Some things you'll want to bring with you:

  • A good flashlight. This is probably more important than anything else. The light in most of the hotel rooms and in the Ballroom is not the best for properly viewing marbles. There are plenty of small LED flashlights available these days and you should bring one. Some also have an ultraviolet LED in them, which makes looking for fluorescence much easier.
  • A magnifying glass or jeweler's loupe is useful for getting a closer look at the surface of a marble.
  • A caliper or circle template will help you properly measure the diameter of the marbles you are interested in.
  • You should bring a small carrying bag or fanny pack. Sellers will wrap your marbles for you, but it helps to have something other than your pockets to carry them in.
  • And, of course, bring your enthusiasm.
