Venue Details

The weather was Windy. I wore A cute dress with tights and boots. You can really wear almost anything you want, but definitely wear comfy shoes because you'll be walking and standing all day..

Shopped around, got a couple of good deals and loads of jewelry making ideas. It was easy enough to get to and the parking was good.

Thought I would spend 1/2 hour and ended spending two. There were some talented artisan among the bulk dealers who made it interesting for the non-professional.

Most sellers were knowledgeable, like the Polish lady selling amber. Others not so much, like the 20 year old males selling rhodochrosite... they didn't know where it's mined!! Otherwise, this show was a great chance to buy beads by the string,...continued
