How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The event seemed well-attended. There was an awful lot of schlock and it reminded me a lot of a flea market. I didn't think that people selling purses, clothing, Russian jewelry boxes, and other such non-jewelry-related items belonged at this event. If they are to be included in future, you need to change the name to reflect the presence of these vendors and move them to their own section. Also, it was pointless to separate out the retail from the resale vendors. They all charged the same whether you showed them a resale number or not, and there were much fewer vendors doing business in the resale area. I am not sure I would attend again given the entry and parking fees.
