How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
My first impression was that the venue was really unpleasant looking and "dive-y." It was on the basement level of the Seattle Center's Exhibition Hall, under bright-bright lights that made the place feel like a sauna. Did find some beads that I liked, and the prices on them seemed fair. But it was just not a pleasant environment. And the booths -- at least those on the periphery, where most of the beads were -- were jammed together fairly tightly. At one point, I went to the restroom, and found it really dirty, as if it hadn't been cleaned all day. I stayed at the event for only about 45 min. Really could not wait to leave. Not sure if I'll ever go back.
