June starts with us on the road for our third gem and mineral show of the year. Since the show is in Maryland, we will be traveling for 10 days. We also have some family time planned, which will have us out of pocket for another six days this month. Customer service, drilling, and shipping will be impacted.

Our LIVE shows will be somewhat limited this month. We have scheduled some and may surprise you with additional ad hoc events.

Many of you expressed interest in text notification for our LIVE shows. Rest assured, we will only use text messaging to alert you about our LIVE shows and we will only text those who sign up for the notifications! Starting this later month, we will be launching this feature. We will send you a text message 30 minutes before each of our LIVE shows. We invite you to opt into these notifications by signing up here. Please note: you may receive three text messages a week (if we have three LIVE shows that week).


One other piece of news, we've recently had some work done on our website (link below), so it might look a little different. We hope you like it!

As a reminder, we do not insure packages of less than $300. If you want to add insurance, please use the tipping option on your invoice. You can read more about why we are offering optional insurance here. Other "reminder" topics are below in the Remember section.

What else is in store for June?

As mentioned, we have one gem and mineral show - the Gem Miners show in West Friendship Maryland (6/8-9).
