This is my third "goldstar" bead show at the Expo Center. This location provides ample parking and a good facility for the event. I always spend more time and money than I had planned.

This is the FIRST bead show I have ever attended. I absolutely enjoyed myself......except I spent a bit more than I planned to spend. Oh well, it was so worth it! I would definitely like to go again next year!
