CARTHAGE, MO.--- Several hundred Precious Moments collectors have come to Carthage for an annual convention. Each year, collectors from as far away as Singapore go to the 3 day event.

They buy, sell and trade Precious Moments statues. They also get a glimpse of the 200 new statues coming out in 2014. Many of the collectors say this is the equivalent of their Disney World.

"It's our one year vacation every year. We look forward to it," said Bev Witmer, From Iowa.

The collectors will also buy and sell figures in their hotel rooms after the convention ends each day.
