I was at the fair Sunday morning. As said before, the fair is small with 30 dealers but heavily reglemented. Swiss minerals only which makes it a real mineral fair. About 10-20% were from Lengenbach and the "rest" of the Binn valley. Everything else was pretty mixed. They again had the nice area for the kids, where they dumped material from Lengenbach with lots of pyrite. Most of the visitors were non-mineral collecting visitors ("tourists") and I heard one dealer complaining that nobody buys anything.

If you collect systematic and like pieces where arrows are glued on to show you where to search, then this fair is the right one for you. Prices: quadratite was sold for 200-300 CHF, a 3 mm synchysite for 80 CHF, smaller ones for 45 CHF, invisible ones (arrow) for 25 CHF. Else was mixed of course. For the ore collector: material from the molybdenium mine at Baltschieder was sold for less than 10 CHF. Thats really cheap considering you have to walk 5-6 hrs up the mountain and 4 hrs down to get a piece yourself (Günter: 3-4 hrs up, 2-3 down ;-)

Cheers,
Stefan

I had a look to the link, It looks quite small but I like local fair, I have the feeling one can have better occasions than in large fairs. But you definitely right, it would be much better combing a collecting trip!!

I think i will go to there, at least for the fair..

Its a large tent (sort of party tent), Swiss dealers only, of course the guys from Lengenbach and Binntal in general, pretty local. It is not very big, about 30 dealers? Might not be worth travelling there from Zürich, but nice anyway and you might combine it with a Binntal collecting trip.

Well, just follow the link, you get all infos, including pics from the last ones.

Cheers,
Stefan
