How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
My sister & I went. It was less interactive than the 1 we attended in Berkeley. The prices for readings was a bit steep & I couldn't afford that & get aura pics & buy stones/crystals. I got the aura pics - maybe a better discount for multiples? We enjoyed it. We didn't get tarot readings as my sister spent $40 & $35 on a psychic & feather-past life reading, respectively. She did buy a beautiful quartz crystal tip birch wand with healing stones embedded in the wand body. It is beautiful but again, I couldn't afford 1. It was $55 with a couple bucks knocked off. I got a wonderful turquoise piece-very good price, a small Tibet quartz crystal & some healing stones-seemed like retail prices, no event discounts really on small stones. My sister also got some great stones. I really enjoyed the selection of stones, crystals & Tibet items. Singing bowls, bells & prayer wheels of great quality from Tibet/Nepal area. I couldn't afford the really great ones but there were many jewelry items that were nice & affordable. I also got a pair of moonstone earrings for a fair, albeit retail price, $20 & change with tax. I would like to see better food, maybe sandwiches instead of hotdogs & old pizza? We bought 2 bananas & my sister did get a hot dog as we were there several hours.Overall it was fun but the Berkeley event had less expensive readings & better discounts for multiples. There was also raffles & some free mini classes we really enjoyed at Berkeley. Maybe add them next time?
