How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This was a nice large event, but not too large. Park at the college for free, short walk to market. I thought that things were a bit overpriced and vendors in general not as friendly as the Topanga Vintage Market, where I have been twice. Not crazy crowded where you couldn't get to booths to see things. The food vendors (1 tent) were nice and the food was ok, except the potato logs. They looked so good when I saw people walking around with them, but they were just limp and filled with grease. For me personally, too many Indian turquoise jewelry booths, African art, fabric booths and bead (for jewelry making) booths. I'm glad we went once but we probably wouldn't go back.
