Small show. I had fun but not great. Happily I had Goldstar so worth the trip

This is a great event for people who make jewelry and/or are looking to purchase items at a reduced cost. It is a bit overwhelming the first time one goes but worth the effort. It took me about 2 hours to get through all the vendors. I went on a...continued

It was quite nice.
I would not have called it International at all unless diversity of emigration
justifies this definition.
But all in all, it was a decent show.

Seemed to be 1/3 to 1/2 fine jewelry, 1/3 cheaper stuff like beads for people making own jewelry or crafts & rest some other items. Was confused as to why they had separate section for "wholesale" that you had to register separately for. We did...continued

I definitely found some treasures at this event, but it was primarily bead and jewelry. I was hoping for more gems/stones. Still worth attending though!

I took a friend as part of her birthday present. We never expected to see as much as there was to see. The convention hall was covered from wall to wall with gems, gem stones, beads. We did not know that there would be a jewelry repair section. We...continued

Many of the vendors that I liked that sold items at the show in the past are no longer there. I won't be attending any more shows in the future.

There were many more "real" jewels there than I thought. I thought I would be more like a craft show. There were items there for up to $81,000! There was also cheap rhinestone jewelry, not too much in between in the $20-100 range. There were a...continued

This was my first time at the show and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. It was OK, but I was hoping for more variety, but after about 10 booths, everything started to look the same. There were a ton of beads, so if you're into beading, you'd...continued
