This is not a really first class bead show, but if you look carefully, there are a few vendors with unusual and good merchandise at very fair prices. It takes time to find those vendors, but in the end, the show was worthwhile for me.

Much less vendors than other events there but higher quality. They seemed more local...

Fairly small show with not a lot of diversity in product. Not a great selection of beads, either in crystal or semi precious. Good show for strict amateurs who are not so particular

Fun event! Good number of vendors with pretty good prices on beads and beading supplies. Parking though was too high at $10.

I love the bead show. It's similar to the gem and jewelry show they have in the same location, but the bead show has much cheaper merchandise, more findings and if you dig a little, some fantastic bargains. I think it's best to do a quick walk...continued

many strands of crystals and beads at good prices. Not as much variety as I had expected. Some booths were laid out so you could not get to merchandise. Not enough variety of chains used in jewelry making. Some had a minimum requirement to buy....continued

They have raised the parking fee to $10 now, which seems pretty steep when you consider there is street parking in the nearby neighborhood. This particular bead show (I have been to two of these before as well as several of the Gem and Jewelry...continued

What a waste of time!
The same parking charge as for the Gem & Jewelry Show,but this one is about 1/5 in size. Few vendors, and not the best ones at that. Higher prices;no wholesale area; lots of parking, but there was a good reason for that -...continued
