The "Bloomfield Show" (officially the Gem, Mineral-Fssil Show & Swap of the Lawrence County Rock Club) is a large indoor and outdoor show held at the Monroe County (IN)Fairgrounds. This was its 39th year, not all at this location. It had been held in the past in Bedford, IN.
In addition to the outdoor area, part of which can be seen in the first picture, there are three large buildings. Two are end-to-end. This is a view looking down those two buildings. I set up a booth here in the third building for the first time. My booth can be seen in the left picture below. My friends Sheila and Dave Bergmann also sold here for the first time this year. Their booth is seen in the right picture below.
This is an enjoyable, low-key show, especially with a meeting of the Friends of
Mineralogy, Midwest Chapter during the show. Attendance was a bit lower than
previous years, but perhaps the weather was too good!
