The 21st Annual Leaf Lookers Gemboree will be held Oct. 15-17 at the Macon County Community Building just south of Franklin off U.S. 441. Gem and mineral dealers from across the country will be on hand displaying and selling fine jewelry, gems, minerals and more.

The Leaf Lookers Gemboree will feature a wide variety of items including fine finished jewelry, rough and cut gems, lapidary equipment, 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.

“All dealers who attend our Gemborees return year after year because the Franklin shows are among the best in the country,” said Linda Harbuck, executive director of the Franklin Chamber of Commerce.

Admission price is $2 for those 12 and older, free for those under 12. 10 a.m. to 6 pm. Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. 828.524.3161 or toll free at 800.336.7829.
