The event this year was nice but I didn't give it 5 stars because the amount of vendors seemed lower this year. I'm sure this reflects the tough economy and that may be the case over the next few years. Other than the number of vendors, the show...continued

The prices were excellent. It was not nearly as crowded as I was afraid it would be. Some of the booths didn't have enough help and there were lines to pay for items. I would have liked to have seen some items associated with beads such as tools,...continued

The show was great! I met a lot of very frendly and knowledgeable vendors and whether I purchased something from them or not, they were quite willing to talk about jewelry, gems and beads. Many of the prices were a bit higher this year than in...continued

This event was great. I wish that I knew ahead of time that parking was $13. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and be ready to walk. You will definitely find some bargains. Arrive early so you can give yourself plenty of time to browse.

This is a very nice show with Gems and Jewelry from various countries being on display. We found beads for just a dollar. Be prepared to spend the whole day with your wife chasing around the shops :-) Also take along a lot of cash. You don't want...continued

This is one of my favorite shows to attend. You need sunglasses when you enter the show with so many exhibitors showing their gem stones. Great prices and you find unusual items.

This show was a disappointment from those in previous years, because of the number of and variety of vendors and was geared to those interested in expensive jewelry. I would not spend $13 for parking in addition to general admission costs again. ...continued

This was my first time at this show. The selections were huge, so much to choose from. The prices varied from booth to booth so I had to hunt for the best buys. Yes I will return next year. Negatives: The cost of parking $13.00 really? (that...continued
