The InnSuites show is one of my favorite in Tucson. Its a large show in the sprawling Hotel Tucson near downtown Tucson, where all the dealers sell out of their hotel rooms. You'll find most of the recognized names in mineral dealers at this show, with an amazing array of variety and friendliness. When the weather is nice, it's a pleasure to walk around as the grounds are mostly outdoors.
For all those unable to attend the show, I snapped plenty of pictures so you can get a sampling of the show. I also took a few pictures of interesting minerals I came across. All photographs taken by Hershel Friedman.
