Doswell, VA – Treasures of the Earth Gem, Mineral, and Jewelry is pleased to announce their annual show season will kick off March 20-22 in Doswell, VA at the Meadow Event Park.
Vendors from across the country will participate in this show, which is open to the public.

“We’re excited to be starting our 2015 show season,” Westbrook said. “Many of our vendors have recently returned from a buying trip in Tucson, Arizona where they found lots of gorgeous and exciting gems, rocks, jewelry, gift items and more. These great finds will be unveiled at the Doswell show. Be the first to see this wonderful selection of fantastic merchandise.”
“Meadow Event Park, conveniently located 1.5 miles from I-95 at Exit 98, is a beautiful facility,” said Ellen White, Westbrook’s partner. “It is actually built on the grounds of the ancestral homeplace of Christopher Chenery, which he transformed into a renowned Thoroughbred farm. The famous Triple Crown winning race horse, Secretariat, was born and raised on this farm.”
“We encourage people to come check out the jewelry and gems and also to get a taste of history,” Westbrook said. “In addition, Randolph-Macon College in nearby Ashland is an interesting and impressive place to visit.”
Since no road trip is complete without a nice meal, Westbrook suggests guests also plan to visit the Hanover Tavern & Pub, Ashland Coffee & Tea, and the Iron Horse Restaurant for a taste of the area’s local fare.
Also, during the same weekend, the Richmond Antiques Spectacular Show will be held at Meadow Event Park.
