We had a difficult time finding the right building because there was NO outside signage. We had to go into another building to get directions. There was only one building where we could see people. This is a large complex and our first time going there. Thank goodness there was a dance competition. If not we probably wouldn’t have gone.
I actually couldn't use the check in feature suggested from this app. I was disappointed that after attending this event for over 3 years now as a wholeseller, somehow there is no record of such attendees. It would be helpful for the event organizer to keep a directory of past attendees and their ranking as either a shopper or wholeseller. I didn't purchase anything b/c I didnt' have my EIN number with me.
Seems like fewer vendors each time they come to Chicago. I prefer higher quality beads and stones and of the vendors only one really had what I was looking for and his prices were very high. I’ve noticed as the quality of goods goes down so do sales.
The event was held in Niles IL. Instead of Rosemont Stephens Center had to drive 3 addional miles to attend. Once their i found Lapis and white coral bamboo. Spent 77 and created jewelry. All weekend.. I enjoyed my self bought 2 guest with me.
Loved the event. Personally I think it would’ve helped to have some signage letting us know which beads were where, or at least someone who could guide you to specific beads. But everyone was very friendly and helpful.
