“Gem Show” Cowboy Style
The true “Gems” of the Old West are its diverse heritage; the people, the terrain, the natural resources. Stagecoaches, mighty Indian Chiefs, Gun Fights, the Cavalry and even the stars of Hollywood have covered this Saguaro filled desert. The colorful influence of Cowboys, Indians and the Vaquero will be celebrated at the 4th Tucson Old West Round-Up.
The Old West Round-Up, loaded with old west collectibles, antiques, jewelry, beadwork, vintage fire arms, hats, spurs, saddles, bits and rugs will draw hundreds of professional buyers and western enthusiasts. This ongoing and widely traveled trade show has proven to be a favorite of the Southwest.
Join us at the Pima Country Fairgrounds, Thurber Hall for the 4th Tucson Old West Round-Up & Auction, a sale of Western & Indian collectibles, January 30- February 1,2009. Purveyors of Old West Americana will travel from as far east as Arkansas and from the northern Dakota & Montana territories.
The quality of items will match anything offered, anywhere. We’ve built a reputation for that. It’s an opportunity for the serious collector or novice, even folks looking for western style furnishings for their homes, to purchase that long searched-for treasure.
The Round-Up clearly shows that the Old West, Cowboys, Indians, and Vaqueros, is alive far beyond the legend and lore. Henry’s rifles, 1873 Winchester repeaters and just about any other “tool of the trade” will be for sale. Don’t forget the saddles, boots, chaps and vintage western clothing, we can even find you a 10-gallon hat, shaped and fitted for any cowboy, cowgirl or collector. There will be spurs and bits here that can’t be found anywhere else.
Is it the old pawn jewelry you’re looking for? Look no farther! Silver and turquoise Indian jewelry is a popular favorite of many buyers. A full representation of beadwork, basketry and rugs will catch the eye of the Native American enthusiasts.
The Hollywood Westerns will be represented well with items from Hoppy, Gene and Roy. Don’t think that we’ve left out the paper ephemera and book collectors because we haven’t — this is the place to find that first edition or hard-to-find book, you’ve been looking for.
