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 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.
April 28th Rum River Art Center Marble Show and Member Meeting
The Midwest Marble Club’s Rum River Art Center Marble Show and Meeting on April 28th was a success. Those who attended had a lot of fun. Personally I had my best ever 1 day sales, which was exciting. We had about 75 people walk through the show. Most where from the general public, however several were members, some of whom had not made a Club Meeting in years. Feedback from the member/vendors was very positive, leading us to look at doing it again next year.
