There was a long line to get in first thing. The set up seemed disorganized on entrance. I am pretty sure I spent more time in line than I did at the fair. Not many booths set up, not much to see, do.

I had higher expectations for this event. Mainly it was a lot of local companies selling things like blankets, baby and maternity clothes, and beauty products. Their prices are typically high so I didn't feel like there were any great steals even...continued

Great seminars and booths, wish there were more vendors and representatives for each booth but overall had a great time.
