How was your experience?
There was a lot to see at this show, but mostly for those interested in gemstones. There were two buildings worth of vendors but I don't think there was any logic to the placement. Parking was free but with no lines on the ground, many people double and tripled parked, trapping folks in; some got towed. Also, I attended on Friday. Maybe it wasn't the best day. Several van/bus loads of senior citizens were dropped off. It got crowded very quickly. As always, bring your own snacks and water because vending is expensive and there is a lot of ground to cover.
