    New marble collector here... Houston, TX

    I am 34 years old and have recently started collecting marbles and also playing marbles with my kids (better than video games). I was wondering if someone could direct me to a store, collector, dealer, etc. in the Houston, TX area so that I could see what a real marble collection looks like, purchase some marbles, and meet a real life marble collector in person. I enjoy looking at marble sites on the internet, and I have ordered a couple books (from this site... should be here soon). Thanks for any insight you can give me.

    Armydoc31,

    I am no help for Texas.
    There are some great collectors down there, but they will have to speak up.

    However, if you ever make a trip to Kansas, there are a couple of spots for you.
    A few miles south of Fort Leavenworth is a store dedicated to marbles.

    The name of this establishment is Moon Marble Company.
    It is located in Bonner Springs, KS.
    Bruce Breslow has millions of machine made marbles for sale, along with hand-made contemporary marbles.
    www.moonmarble.com
    Bruce is truly an ambassador of marbles.

    Along with Bruce as a marble ambassador is Cathy Runyon-Svacina.
    She and her husband have their collection at a local museum.
    Check out her website:

    There is so much to discover!
    Enjoy your journey!

    Sincerely,
    John McCormick
    "Shamrock Marbles"

    P.S. This week is a big show in Amana, Iowa for marbles!

    P.P.S. There is a show in Tulsa coming up very soon also!
