How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
IMPORTANT: The people taking entry fees at the door told me there is no such thing as will-call tickets for the show. You need to bring your confirmation printout with you. They were generous and waved me through, but you should bring your printout, as I'm sure they'll stop feeling so generous if a dozen people show up asking for will-call tickets and don't have printouts. Even though the show is aimed at jewelry makers, there is plenty of finished jewelry to be had there. There are hardly any tools there, mainly components and findings. Some vendors will require a wholesaler number or they will charge you retail prices. Also one of the vendors would not take my check, saying he's been burned too many times by dishonest people. He said that vendors are moving away from taking checks. So bring cash or credit card. If you're willing to walk a few minutes you can park in a nearby neighborhood and save yourself $8.

Help others enjoy a great night out

Info
You can save yourself $8 and park in a nearby neighborhood if you don't mind walking.
