I decided to do a Blog post about “Q”, as it’s commonly referred to. This is for the Folks that have never been here.
“Quartzsite is a little town of 3,700 residents in the southern part of Arizona. Every year since the early 60’s when it started as a small selling area for rocks and gem tailgating, it has grown in leaps and bounds to become one of the biggest swap meet areas in the country. Almost 2,000 vendors come each year and bring all kinds of merchandise from all over the world. Last Winter, over one and a half million people visited this area.”
Don’t matter though as there are no amount of words that could explain it. There are no amount of pictures that can capture what it is like there. This place is something you simply have to experience for yourself.
This was my second time already going back there this year and I spent about 10 days there this time. I walked around many of the isles of vendors and venture to say that I still haven’t covered even 1/100th of it ! It’s a lot of walking to cover everything.
A few pics of some of the things I saw.
Jim and Sandie shopping for these very cool LED, motion sensor lights I got.
Driving through town on a quad is a common thing to see and is an accepted mode of transportation here.
And the ‘Big Tent Show’ hasn’t even started !!
My wallet is substantially lighter as a result of my two previous visits and I’m going back there again next week. Can’t wait !!
Will do a seperate Blog post on all the cool little dooo-daddds I got.
