THIS IS MY SHOW SCHEDULE!!!
Hands on, is infinitely better than sight unseen! I encourage everyone to go to as many shows as you can, while you can! If you are having difficulty attending a show, You can always make an appointment to see me at my World Headquarters in Arkansas from March to September, or, see me in Quartzsite, Arizona from October until late February.
PLEASE Check the following list to see when and where I am. So YOU can plan your trip to see me.
CRYSTALS ARE OUR LIGHT IN THIS DARKNESS!!!
Sorry: Some information and disclaimers first: PLEASE! Take note: cell service is very spotty in the rural area in which I live. So, I simply just do not get the calls or messages all the time. For a faster response please email me: email@example.com
NO! I DO NOT HAVE A CRYSTAL MINE!
And I do not want one. Too much hassle…
People are always asking me, “Do you get these yourself?”, The answer is, “Yes, of course, and, no.” The detailed answer is, “Yes, of course, I do. They are NOT shipped to me, sight unseen, in barrels packed with sawdust from the cut-down rain forests from some other country. I pick each one here in Arkansas. And after 12 years of digging by hand, I have found, before I nearly wore myself out, that it is much easier to buy them than to dig them, and then clean them. Especially, with such a, formerly, heavy show schedule. Mining is a job in and of itself. Cleaning and processing, besides selling, is a big job and keeps me always pretty busy. “But, I dig when I can.” When you see me with material that “I” dug, there is a good chance that YOU will be the first person to touch it besides me, especially, at the beginning of a new show. And it usually sells very quickly. When I buy, and also when I dig, I handle the crystals as little as possible- never touching the tips; and, always, with love, reverence, respect and great care so that you get them as perfect as Our Mother Earth let them come to us.
***In that same vein, and it is unfortunate that I have to even say this, but, as a disclaimer, it is my expectation that when someone is looking at MY crystals in MY booth and handling them, that whomever it is will treat them with the utmost care and respect as I do, and as I would do with theirs. Ignorance is NO excuse for bad manners. Remember they are mine until you buy them, and I will protect my property… Hopefully, one is taught as a small child, this basic show of respect. A big part of my job is to protect the crystals. Anyone found mishandling the crystals will not be scolded. That only leads to problems, arguments and posturing. The offender will simply be asked to leave. Enough said.***
Thanks for looking. And, ‘THANK YOU’, and GOD BLESS YOU! to all of you have attended a show.
