How was your experience?
The International Gem and Jewelry Show at SM County Expo is a regularly scheduled event with about half vendors selling fine jewelry and half vendors of beads and pearls, etc. for the jewelry maker. There are several vendors of findings and several selling chains, flex wire, etc out in the public sales area. There are also scattered vendors of Asian antique bits and pieces, Russian dolls and amber, purses and scarves, etc. Most of the vendors attend regularly. Friday afternoon and Sunday are less crowded than Saturday but even when crowded, the event participants are good natured and it just takes a bit more time moving around and standing in line to pay. Tips: Paying for goods with cash saves time and gives you more negotiating options. Note: Parking in the Event Lot costs $8.
