My friend and I attended and we had a great time. There were several people that had very unique gems that you wouldn't find at your local bead store. We also bought scarves and hair accessories...an unexpected find.

My interest was for the raw minerals and crystals typically shown at this type of show (or at least they used to be). There was only one dealer of any appreciable size... continued

Good show but seemed a little less organized than in the past. I recall from the past a section that just had $2, $3 and $4 strands of beads. Would have loved to see that again.
