Gem Faire established in 1989 has become a world renowned marketplace for the finest in gemstones beads jewelry minerals fossils meteorites lapidary equipment metaphysical items and much more at the lowest prices in todays market. Over the years Gem Faire has produced over 40 shows a year making it the largest Gem and Jewelry show circuit on the West Coast.
For those of us who make jewelry there seems to be less items available to choose from. Maybe a vendor who sells sterling beads etc. Ran in to an over zealous and rude cosmetic vendor who pulled me in and expected me to purchase her product at 300.00 per tube. Yes, I will always visit each San Rafael gem faire because I always find something.
Fun rock show but for this event paying $10 just to park is unreasonable as it's a smallish show. Attendance would increase dramatically if the cost was reduced. Feel sorry that the promoters have this obstacle to contend with. At fairgrounds in Eugene, OR parking is free and they get a crazy amount of business!
The vendors were very friendly and offered a variety of products. I’m so glad the jeweler was there that sized rings...she was very quick and did a great job. The woman at the entrance was not very friendly at all. The men helping were very friendly but I asked several times what to do with the other half of the claim ticket and he said nothing. This was not right bc he had the numbered stubs and I had a the part that should’ve been filled out... I went back and asked him but he still said to do nothing ... when they pick a numbered stub, how will they know, if it’s not filled out, whose it is. This was not done well and other Gem Faire have you put the filled-out portion in a box ... obviously, these people at the front were not informed properly.Organized event

Putting item name and prices in plain site is the best thing you can do to keep a customer. I move on if it's too difficult to find out the price of an item. Lots of newbies to this hobby and names of things are critical. Otherwise it was spectacular!
I was able to find a everything I needed to complete a project. I was also looking for a Christmas project. The vendor only had 5 of the items that I wanted and promised to be back in December and save the extra 20 pieces that I wanted for gifts.
