Along the western side of the I-10 Freeway, directly south of downtown, lies a cluster of shows that stretch over several motels. Dealers sell their mineral and gemstone goods out of their motel rooms and in tents large and small throughout the motel properties.
The motels include the Quality Inn, the Howard Johnson, and the Travelodge. Many of the dealers are foreign, with a large proportion of them being Brazilian. The density of dealers and sheer number of sellers at this location is truly staggering.
