Looking for great fall color? This October will find the mountains of southwestern North Carolina alive with more than autumn color as the 22nd Annual Leaf Lookers Gemboree opens at the Macon County Community Building just south of Franklin off U.S. Highway 441. Gem and mineral dealers from across the country will be on hand displaying and selling fine jewelry, gems, minerals, and more against the backdrop of spectacular fall color beginning Friday, Oct. 14 through Sunday, Oct. 16.
The Leaf Lookers Gemboree will feature a wide variety of items including fine finished jewelry, rough and cut gems, lapidary equipment, beads, minerals, fossils and collectibles. Dealers will also be available to custom make that special piece of jewelry you’ve always dreamed of or for the upcoming holiday season.
