The Gem and Jewelry Show was a nice way to spend an afternoon. I never stopped saying “oooh… aaahh… pr-et-ty.” The diversity of vendors allows one to spend as much or as little as they like. It's like an eye candy fair.

There were lots of vendors (both jewelry and beads and supplies). It was a little overwhelming with several of the vendors selling the same type of items. It was a little difficult to sift through all of the vendors to find what I was looking...continued

This was my first time. I was looking specifically for cabachons for my upcoming jewelry metalcrafting class. Nonetheless, I did find some nice jewelry for good prices. There is something for everyone.

Wear comfortable shoes-be polite-don't go if you don't like crowds-so many choices it was overwhelming at times--no place to sit and rest-not a place for children or babies

A large show with lots of jewelry and bead vendors. There didn't seem to be as many bead vendors as in the past. There were a lot of fine jewelry vendors.

Bought a few nice things. Have been attending the show for many years. My favorite vendor wasn't there this time selling Saworski crystal so that was disappointing. Valet parking was convenient but expensive ($20). The food and soft drinks...continued

Did not like it. It was too crowded. Not very good things. I thought this one might be better because you had to pay to get in. I was not impressed.
