Dealer Information

Our 2021 Show is ON! If you are a dealer and wish to exhibit at our 2021 show or future shows please contact:
  • Wilbur Pfromm at "wpdog-mms@yahoo.com"

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 do not provide any assurance of selection and admission to a subsequent show.
