And the 31st annual Antique Jewelry & Art Conference, aka “Jewelry Camp,” July 17th-19th, 2009, is the best place to do just that – and more.

It’s time to get tough, focused, and smart in these tight economic times. At the Antique Jewelry & Art Conference you will be meeting and learning from the experts in buying, selling, appraising, and collecting. And the list of experts is impressive.
