Tucson is THE place to go if you love beads, gems and minerals. It's bead heaven for sure because literally thousands of participants from around the world congregate in some 40 sites around the city. Every available space is taken up - tents, meeting centers, hotels. Some dealers even sell directly from their hotel rooms!
Artbeads is having a fabulous "Road to Tucson" Sweepstakes- a round-trip airfare for two to Tucson, Arizona and 3 nights accommodation to attend the 2012 Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase (January 28- February 12). The winner will also attend classes with well-known beading instructors and have access to the biggest shows.
This sweepstakes is open to US and Canadian residents (excluding Quebec) age 18 and up. Entry deadline is March 16, 2011 at 11:59pm PT.
It's a wonderful prize because with all the traveling, classes and show attendance expenses already paid for, the budget for beads will definitely be much larger!
