  1. Tucson Fossil Show News

    George F. Winters of the Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences (AAPS) just posted this on Facebook. The guide has been very useful to those attending the show. Tucson has yet to put any restrictions on the different fossil venues other than cancelling the Convention Center Gem and Mineral show . If I hear anything will post it. Travel restrictions may be the biggest impediment for dealers to participate and visitors to attend.
  2. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone was going to the NJ gem, mineral, and fossil show... I’m considering going, but I wouldn’t be super interested if there aren’t many fossil dealers, I was also wondering if anyone knows how many dealers are going to be there. TIA!
  3. Tampa Bay Fossil Fest Photos

    Next Saturday!!! Just a reminder:
  4. Just reminder see Tff Calendar for more about this show in Lakeland.

  7. UPDATED WITH PICTURES FROM THE SHOW For those of you in or near the Western Suburbs of Chicago this weekend, you should try and stop by the Kane County Fairgrounds located at 525 S. Randall Road in St. Charles, Illinois. The 43rd Chicagoland Gem, Mineral And Fossil Show will take place on Saturday (10a-6p) and Sunday (10a-5p). This is a really great and large show and I am sure you would find something that would interest you. For pics from last years show check out a post of mine from 5-26-18 titled CGMA (Chicago Gem–Mineral Association) 42nd Annual Show. If you can’t make it, I will most likely be posting pictures of the show later Saturday evening.

  9. Tucson 2019 Pictures

    So I got back from Tucson a few days ago and thought I'd post some pictures for all to see! Pictures got downloaded out of order when I had to shrink the size to make them compatible for the forum. Sorry I can't ID everything for you guys like @Troodon did last year. Enjoy! Let's start with my favorite topic... eggs! French Eggs: A perfect and complete raptor nest from China: A very rare and complete elephant bird egg from Madagascar: Duck Egg:

  11. Tucson show questions

    I am thinking of attending a Tucson fossil show this year. Could someone please share recommendations as to which days/which shows would be the best to attend? (I can be there for 2 days max) My primary interests are reptiles, dinosaurs and sharks.
  12. Spent a few hours today at the annual London Rock and Mineral show. Most of the vendors specialize in minerals and jewellery, but a few had some fossils. I am not sure about posting images from the specific vendor tables without their permission, but the fossils were mostly what one would expect at shows like these: polished Moroccan orthocerids, Madagascaran ammonites, the usual trilobites, and the GR fish plates. Just a glance down one of the aisles: Although I have a digital copy of Trilobites of New York, I'm still a bibliophile of the first water, and sometimes nothing quite beats having a physical book in hand. This is an unopened copy I bought for a very fair price: But perhaps the highlight of the visit was talking to two vendors who were also local collectors. We talked about our collecting spots and traded a few stories. One of the vendors actually knew Charlie Southworth personally. Of course, after spending some time in conversation it only felt appropriate to make a purchase. So my only fossil purchase was this cephalon of Eldredgeops iowensis southworthi (since we were, after all, talking about Charlie Southworth!). Although just a cephalon, the size is impressive. So, not a "major" shopping excursion, but pleasant. Definitely the best part was the conversation with the veteran collectors, swapping names (of fossils, sites, and collectors we know). Good to get out of the house on this snowy day, and even better to return home for some hearty, homemade lentil soup.
  13. PaleoTime-NL International Fossil Show

    On Saterday March 9th 2019, the yearly international fossil show of Paleontica-Fossiel.net, the Paleobiologische Kring and the Werkgroep Fossielen Wageningen will be held again: the PaleoTime-NL International Fossil Show.

All the costs of this fossil show are completely covered by donations. For information for exhibitors, see our Exhibitor Information page. After 4 beautiful years at the ROVC in the town of Ede, PaleoTime-NL 2019 will take place at a new, larger and better location, at the Bouw & Infra Park in the city of Harderwijk. website: www.paleotime.nl/en location: Bouw & Infra Park, Ceintuurbaan 2, 3847 LG, Harderwijk, The Netherlands opening hours: 10:30 to 16:30 h No entrance fee for visitors. A voluntary donation is much appreciated
  14. Well another Fossilmania show has come and gone. I have been attending these shows since it's inception in the early 80's. What was once a fossil only show/sale/trade venue has turned into "just whatever they display" type of show. Lots of "just plain rocks", gemstones jewelry and yes fossils, most of which I have handled many times. There were a few recognizable friends there behind those, select few fossil only tables, but it is so different this year than from years gone by. No longer friends getting together having a great time camping fireside chats swapping lies and stories true or otherwise. It seem that every year fewer and fewer people who were part of a comradery that stood for years attend. Admittedly disappointing now, back when the show was held in the Oakdale Park grounds we always had a great time. Since moving the show to the Somervell County exposition hall, it peaked around 2010, it has fallen short every year since. No longer a source of neck hugging, friends and fun (with few exceptions) the show has changed. It is doubtful that I will attend anymore unless they go back to "fossils only" sale/show. If you have attended in the past and have experienced this slide; post your thoughts. Surely there are some who share this view and long for the days of friendship and sharing a love of fossils with each other.

  15. Has anyone ever been to the Florida Fossil Hunters show in Orlando? I'm going to be in Orlando that weekend finishing up a work conference and thought I may check it out. Any dinosaur material vendors? Does anyone have any pictures from the show from years past?
  16. Fossil Fest

    @RJB, @Ptychodus04, Check out the grand prize at Fossil Fest this year! https://www.austinpaleo.org/fest.html
  17. I'm wondering if any FF members are going to the ESCONI fossil show this weekend? It's at the DuPage fairgrounds and more information can be found on their webpage if you're looking at going. We are going to try to get there right at open(10am) Saturday as we have some other stuff going on in the afternoon, and it's a bit of a drive for us. For those of you with kids, we went last year, and the kids had a great time. They had a little area set up with common fossils for the kids to start a collection. They could also buy some other common fossils and minerals for cheap. I'm not sure if it will be the same setup this year, but everyone had a good time last year. Also it's free unlike a lot of the other shows people have been posting about here.
  18. Detail of the show logistics can be found in the following topic Dealers are slowly getting into town and its a madhouse looking at the dealers setting up. The show officially starts Thursday but some are already open in the Ramada and Tucson Hotel that I visited today. Here are some pictures. Tucson Hotel City Center -
  19. Tucson Fossil Show 2018

    I'm starting to plan a trip to the Tucson Fossil Show in February. (This will be my first time there.) I've only got a couple of days and I know there are dozens of separate shows, so I want to plan my time to visit the best of them. It seems like the 22nd Street Show should be a good one to attend, what other ones should I think about attending? What Fossil Forum members will be exhibiting there? I'd like to try to at least stop by and say hello, maybe buy something, too.
  20. Has anyone ever been to the Greater Detroit Mineral, Gem, and Fossil Show (coming up in mid-October)? If so, can you comment on the number of vendors and diversity and quality of fossils available for sale?
  21. Hi everyone! So it has been a busy week for me, as I have things to post but haven't found the time. I just got back from Gemworld 2017 and I would like you opinion on my one and only purchase. I went to the show with the mindset that if I bought anything at all it had to be something special. I normally do not buy fossils. So after walking around and looking at many interesting specimens, what caught my eye was a Cretodus crassidens tooth from South Dakota in matrix. I have wanted one of these for awhile. The tooth is pretty nice. It is all intact. But there are two cracks which run though the tip of the root above one of the cusps. As an added bonus there is a smaller Cretodus as well as a few Squalicorax falcatus teeth on the top and bottom of the piece. There also appears to be possible bone and fish teeth. I paid $97. I know that Cretodus teeth are sought after and can demand a fairly high price. Because don't normally buy, I would just like to know if you guys think it was a good purchase. I don't know if I would have paid that much for the Cretodus by itself , but with all the other teeth in the matrix It was hard to pass up. Here are some pics. I can try to take some close-ups later if anyone wants. Thanks Dave
  22. Has anyone ever been to the Sainte Marie Aux Mines gem and mineral show? How is the fossil material, specifically dinosaur? Worth a trip from the US?
  23. Fossil Show: Ede 2017

    Hello all fossil-friends! (I'm not sure whether this is in the right thread, if it's not I'd love the admins to put it where it's meant to be .) Anyways, I wanted to tell everyone that their is a big fossil market at Ede (Netherlands) this weekend, and that I would love you to come! It is organized by the Paleobiologische Kring van Nerderland/Vlaanderen (Paleobiological Group of Netherlands/Flanders), the Werkgroep Fossielen Wageningen (Workgroup Fossils Wageningen), and the famous Fossiel.NET (basically a Dutch version of TFF); many other organizations/museums will be there too. There will be plenty of stuff to do: amateur-paleontologist encounters, fossil IDing by experts, fossil trading, fossil buying/selling, lectures by paleontologists, prep demonstrations, and many other fun fossil-related activities/workshops! Here's the info you need to know: Date: Saturday 11th March 2017 Time: 10:30 till 16:00 Address: Het ROVC, Galvanistraat 13, 6716 AE, Ede, NETHERLANDS Entry fee: FREE! Stuff to bring with you: fossils you are willing to trade, to prep, to get IDd, etc; and some money. No food needed (drinks and food available). Here is a link with all the information you need: https://english.fossiel.net/beursede/ BUT: this is only for fossils, so NO minerals, artifacts, etc.! I will of course be there, and I hope that you will also be. I hope to see you there! Max PS: I'm not an organizer or anything of the event, I'm just telling everyone about it so that there will be more people to meet.
  24. Japan Fossil Show

    I was wondering if anyone has ever been to a fossil show in Japan. I found some pictures on the Internet of some fossil shows in Japan and the quality of the dinosaur fossils shown are incredible. I'm not sure when or where these pictures were taken.
  25. This show has NOT been canceled. This show is still planned. Be there! https://www.facebook.com/events/1849349945343947/
