I did not expect to see so many vendors of purses, scarves, unstrung beads, and other miscellaneous items. I was hoping to see interesting, high-end jewelry in both silver and gold with and without gemstones. There were too many competing things...continued

I enjoy that they have vendors that repair as well sell jewelry. Great to find things to add to other pieces to embellish and create. I enjoy the variety of things offered.

I took my daughter and granddaughter and we bought gems, jewelry findings, rings, bracelets, beads and hair ornaments!

I went alone. There was so much to see...almost too much. But, I had gone to one of these before. I spent 2 hours there and enjoyed browsing. I did buy a few pieces.

It's a good time for finding unique pieces and gems. Come with a plan or you will be overwhelmed. There is a lot to see.

Made a fair amount of purchases; resale and personal buys of bead and findings.

Happy Chicago has a show, though I felt there should be more bead and findings, especially gold filled, quality gems and more unusual selections

Or I should say: it was okay just because I was expecting better beading assortment.
I am not too much into pre-made jewelry as I like to make my own, but it was still fine.

I think the last day is the day to go, as many of the sellers...continued

The place is huge. Wear comfortable shoes and plan on a lot of walking. The garage ($13) has a free shuttle to the door.
The blue line el stop of Rosemont is a two-three block walk.

I went for the loose beads. Most of the vendors had the same things with some variance in shape or size. Still, I found some nice quality items at fair to high prices. There were two vendors with an outstanding selection of unusual items.

If you have your own business or if you are simply a lover of jewelry, this is not an event you want to miss. I have been to this many times and cannot wait to go back again each time. They have lots of booths with fine jewelry as well as costume...continued

It was a show that was worth attending. If you love jewelry and make your own jewelry then you really need to attend. Not only ready made jewelry but beads for making jewelry. However, the booths were way too close together. In some cases there...continued
