Purchasing from goldstar was much cheaper than regular entrance and completely hassle free! Event was PACKED and there were tons of excellent bargains to be had. Great event for the value.

Purchasing tickets through Goldstar was really easy. I had no problems at the Convention when we got there. The show was a huge success for me. I purchased quite a few things for my jewelry crafts and am having fun using the various items.

Show was reasonably good, but not as big as previous time (in June).

Sure was crowded! I found some fun beads, but I didn't find the booth with the plastic hair clips who was there last time.

The Gem and Jewelry Show had so much different stuff; something for everyone. It can be a bit overwhelming, but after 90 minutes I found two booths that had "my type" of jewelry that made it all worth it!

The show was nice. However, some of the vendors were the most rude people I have ever met in my life. It may be a good idea to have someone in charge of this event to make sure the vendors understand its the customers who make their businesses...continued

The show was amazing - a huge number of venders; a tremendous variety; all prices and levels of quality. Next year, I will do MOST of my Christmas shopping at this event! If you love gems or just want to get great gifts for yourself and/or...continued

There is a lot to see at this show. If you like to make your own jewelry, make sure you bring a shopping list and color matches.
There usually is a tool vender, but they weren't at this show.
My sister and I went to find a necklace and earrings to...continued

There was something for everyone, from very high end to very cheap baubles. Parking was an issue, especially for handicapped attendees.

There were sooo many people. Some good stuff. Some very overpriced stuff. Not sure if the discount you get at the show is worth it.

Thhis event is NOT what it used to be! Far too many "junk shops" selling wares that come no where to being gems or jewelry. On a positive note, one no longer has to fight baby strollers and those who are transported in them.

This show did not live up to my expectations. I expected more original and creative pieces. Instead, it was very boiler plate and boring. Nothing that inspired me to buy.

Unfortunately, there was no 'will call' window, so the "tickets" purchased through GoldStar could not be 'picked up'!!! If one does not have a 'smart phone' (No -- I don't) & didn't print out a confirmation or receipt (NO, I didn't because there...continued
