View Full Version : Good Day

My town has a big event for Canada Day, with music and vendors. Last year, I looked at a beautiful Serafina ring which I passed on because I couldn't afford it. Today I go down, not only is the same vendor there, he has the SAME ring, he's dropped the price by $20, and I have money in my pocket (not going to make that mistake again :-) So I'm looking through his other pieces and I find a 5 inch piece of purple-blue Celestite which he gives me for $5, then he just gives me a decent sized slab of Selenite. I then walk over to another booth to pick up a Citrine point necklace with I had seen earlier. Take a quick look, can't find it, but she's sure she didn't sell it. So I go over the table 3 times looking for it, with no luck. I'm just about to walk away when I look up and right at a Quartz point so included with Chlorite that it literally looks like someone drilled it out and filled it by hand. I ask her about it and she says, "Hmm, I've never seen one like that before, how about $3?"

So all in all, I had a really good day, even before the live music. I'd post pictures, but I cannot seem to get a decent shot of the Quartz for the life of me...

Congratulations on all your great finds! Don't you just love days like that, when everything just seems to fall into place? :D

You know I love it... Last year I got a stunning piece of Pyrite from the same vendor. I'm in Brantford, Ontario... Then to make the day even better, we had Simon Wilcox and The Trews wrapping up the day... My ears are still ringing, but lots of fun.

My husband's head office is in Brantford.... Wow... I didn't know there was so much cool stuff down there. (I am in Muskoka...)

I finally got a few decent pics, so I'll post them. In addition, I decided to hike down by the river today and ran into some of the natives, so I thought I'd post a couple of pics for your enjoyment as well... BTW, if you can't tell, I just bought a new camera a month ago, so I'm still playing...
