Review from Kari Leal

My first visit to the bead show was awesome! I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of collections. Absolutely fantastic prices. Very friendly vendors. If you're into beading, you've got to attend this show!

Review from bonvivantbling

Parking was $10.00. Luckily I had already read that in the Friday reviews. It was my first gem show so I really didn't know what to expect. I thought it was rather small. It was not very crowded and the floor plan was good. I saw the same...continued

Review from waxyleaves

Really great show. This one was half the size of other ones I've attended in the same location (San Mateo Fairgrounds), but the selection was excellent and there were far fewer people. A good mix of very cheap and very high quality stuff. Not too...continued

Review from allicat303

Tables full of beads and bead strands. Very few findings or anything else bead related. Only one table had a class.

Review from Ann

The bead show is fine. I am a new bead person, so I was a bit overwhelmed. Didn't realize that need to pay $10 parking fee, with my daughter came in from different place, end up paying $20 extra for the parking. But the whole event was fun, and...continued

Review from Avalonia24

The Bead Show was smaller than the International Gem Show. But it was all about the beads-of course!-so it was much easier to find the beads I had in mind. The overall experience was more pleasant because the aisles were more spacious and the...continued

Review from Ursula

The event was large enough to offer good variety, but small enough to wander thru and remember which stall one wanted to return too. There were some really good deals, but also some fool you ceramic beads that looked like semiprecious. For a...continued

The selection was much smaller than the international gem show - even with respect to the beading specific items. If both shows come to town next year, I'll only attend the international gem show.

Review from Arttherapy

There was not a lot of variety. Almost all of the tables had the same or similar bead/jewelry selection.

There were very few vendors. On Sunday, there were very good discounts.

This is my third "goldstar" bead show at the Expo Center. This location provides ample parking and a good facility for the event. I always spend more time and money than I had planned.

This is the FIRST bead show I have ever attended. I absolutely enjoyed myself......except I spent a bit more than I planned to spend. Oh well, it was so worth it! I would definitely like to go again next year!

Review from Vivian

This was my first Bead Show and I was amazed at the amount of exhibits they had. I went with the idea of buying beads to make earrings, however, I saw so many beautiful beads that I couldn't make up my mind.

Review from Kathy0718

This was my first visit to a bead show and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I spent about 3-4 hours and a bunch of money! I have a nice supply and variety of beads to keep me busy for awhile! The show wasn't too big to be overwhelming and I thought the...continued

Review from Goldstar Member

Too overwhelming. I couldn't tell real gem stones from glass beads and from cubic zirconia from crystals. I wish the vendors would label their merchandise clearly. I guess if you look at them closely, then may be you can tell. But there are...continued
