Dealer Information

If you are a dealer and wish to exhibit at our 2019 show or future shows please contact:

Dealer Selection:

 

The Michigan Mineralogical Society strives to present to the public, through its annual Greater Detroit Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Show, dealers in gems, minerals, and fossils. The annual selection of dealers and their assignment of floor space is solely at the discretion of the Show Committee and the Dealer Chairperson.

 

The following considerations are used as a guide: pricing, quality of merchandise, the variation of stock, dealer locale, and general knowledge and expertise in their field. The dealer’s history with the Show and reputation in the show circuit is also considered. Further, the Dealer Chairperson seeks to achieve a balanced diversity of merchandise. Thus, selection and admission as a dealer/vendor to an annual Show does not provide any assurance of selection and admission to a subsequent Show.

School Tours:

Most customers during school hours on Friday will be students on field trips led by their teachers and chaperones. Students and chaperones ranging from 750-1500 in number should be anticipated. All Dealers are expected to be open during this important time.

 

It is expected that the Dealer will stock and display items suitable for young hobbyists/collectors both in their nature and price, and that suitable educational information will be provided whenever possible.

 

The educational benefit of the show is greatly enhanced by displays. Teachers with classes attending the show can maximize the educational benefit for their students if they know the specifics of the displays before attending. Dealers with educational displays are asked to provide a specific description of their display and related example questions for K-12 students.
