Annual Mother's Day
Gem & Mineral Show

(Click here for this year's show)

What could be better than a rock for your mother on Mother's Day?

No? Maybe a beautiful mineral specimen? Maybe a fossil? Or how about a stunning piece of handmade jewelry?

Whatever mom's taste may be, she is sure to appreciate a gift from the earth and the best place to find one of those (a clean one anyway) is at the annual GMS Mother's Day Gem & Mineral Show!

Held every Mother's Day weekend, this show draws dealers from all over the country as well as people eager to peruse and purchase unique items.

The entire show is planned, prepared, and executed by GMS member volunteers. From cutting, sewing, making, and filling grab bags for kids to setting up display cases, feeding dealers and volunteers, managing dealer contracts, show advertising, demonstrations, auctions -- there are many things that GMS members do to make this one of the best shows in the Southeast.

So even if you don't volunteer, come to the show and support the hard-working members and dealers who do their best to entertain you.

We also need help to take down and load the trailer at the end of the show on July 11, and to unload it on July 12. And of course, there is that wonderful prize drawing for the members who help with the show!
