The center offers minimal choices but just cross the street and there's a great mexican place.

Comfy shoes would be a good idea as there is much area to cover.

Parking was horrible as parking was expensive but we parked for free in handicapped parking nearby.

Bead show was great. Spent lots of money and got the most unusual beads and chains. Very, very cool.

This show was mainly for people who make and sell jewelry. There were hardly any single beads or stones to buy. You had to buy an entire string. The prices for many of the fittings seemed high to me, but I could be wrong.

I didn't know they taught classes there. I learned a lot. I bought a lot. I was overwhelmed by the inventory.
