I had the chance to visit the Buckeye Marble Collectors in room selling/trading (August 2016) in preparation for the actual show on Saturday. It was nice meeting all the dealers/collectors and I saw some really nice marbles that I was tempted to purchase but decided only on a few. Check out the nice picture of some really nice Christensen Agate glass that was dug. Glass and picture courtesy of Carlin & Lucy Carpenter. It was a pleasure talking with Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter and the wealth of knowledge and expertise that I had gained from them and others when I was walking around. Your inspiration and dedication to the hobby of marble collecting will allow myself and others to continue collecting and pass on the passion to others. I heard one dealer telling me you look like your on a mission. :) I am on a mission to find and collect marbles that will one day be donated to a museum for all to cherish!

It was a strong marble show in February in New Philadelphia, Ohio! I saw many collectors and dealers that were present. I was able to purchase several marble king catseye marble bags from the 1960's at a very good price from one dealer. The catseye marble bags did contain some hybrid cats and I was very pleased with my purchase. I was completely satisfied and what a wonderful show!
