If you are an old time collector looking to meet with other like-minded marble collectors, or you are just beginning to find the fun in collecting marbles, we urge you to come to one of our Midwest Marble Club meetings or shows and enjoy the amazing world of collectible marbles. See what it’s like to feel like a kid again hunting through a group of recently found marbles, looking for that “diamond in the rough” marble, or gazing at some truly remarkable and beautiful works of art. Our members meet quarterly to buy, sell and trade amongst themselves and the public.
Members also help new members and the public identify the “unknown” marbles in their collections or recent finds, as well as provide advice on finding, organizing and displaying their marble collections.
Midwest Marble Club Summer Picnic – July 27, 2019
The next Club event is the Midwest Marble Club Summer Picnic, scheduled for July 27, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. All Club members are urged to attend. The Picnic will again be held at the North River Hills Park, located in Burnsville, MN. Same place as last year.
Midewest Marble Club Marble Show at the Burnsville Center
The Midwest Marble Club Marble Show at the Burnsville Center on April 27th was a success. We had close to 200 people attend. James Henke’s marble making demonstrations were well attended as well. It was a great opportunity to have the general public learn about marble collecting and about the Midwest Marble Club. A number of people signed up for Club memberships. The most exciting part of the show was the high number of people who brought their marble collections in for evaluation. At least 10 different collections were evaluated. More than half of them were sold to vendors at the show. A polling of vendors who attended indicated that we should do this again next year. It was felt that getting the public more involved will help the Midwest Marble Club continue to grow.
