There was a parking garage across the street, but it was too expensive. Could you arrange it so that people who were going to the Gem Show could get a discount on parking? I ended up parking 4 blocks away. Also, I wish there were more vendors (used to be more in past shows). I bought something from Glitters Import and I love them!
I attended this venue years ago, and it was very different from the show I attended recently. Way too many inexpensive products from China like hair accessories, scarves, etc... There were even t-shirt and sheet sellers! I was there for semi-precious and sterling silver beads. I bought from only 4 good sellers. The rest of the bead sellers had cheap, gaudy jewelry. Definitely not enough bead sellers. It is a gem and bead show, isn’t it? I was very disappointed. I’d like to try other locations, maybe they would have different sellers.
Very Organized settled event in the a Casual Environment, entitled to meet manny future business contacts among, Individual Business Owners, Local Stores and Retailers from other Parts of the Country. Thanks.
I noticed that people could pay to get in, I am wondering how I assure I get wholesale pricing? I was never asked for my tax id if I am paying full price as the average person paying to come in I think you should have wristbands for owners and wholesale buyers
.My first time there. Not exactly what I expected. .The customers said the show had gone downhill because of all the imitation beads. .I was surprised at the light foot traffic..The customers said the fall show is better all the way around. I intend to participate in that and not this event next year..A vendor said he did really well at this event last year but terrible this year, and that he does well at the bead show and the fall show..That's all I know boss. :-)
This was not a good show. There were not a lot of vendors and not a good variety. I missed seeing a lot of the familiar faces. Guess internet is taking a huge bite out of your business. I've been a fan for decades. It's just not as good as it used to be. Sorry. I know how hard it is to make money.
Me, my daughter, and granddaughter went. We bought tixs in line. We didn’t see where it said no kids under 9. No one ask her her age. Two people stamped her. We paid 20$ for tixs and 20$ to park. We were there 30 mins. Kylie was sitting on a chair next to us on her tablet . And a lady ask her how old and she said 7. Then she said to me. When you don’t coach them they tell the truth. She always tells the truth. The lady just called us all liars. I was so insulted. So rude so we were kick out. It didn’t stop there. When we leaving the lady that kick us out, the woman in charge of the event and the man that let us in we’re all talking bad about us like we did something wrong. So unprofessional.so rude. I will not be going back ever again. I go to these events often. If this woman is in charge I will not be attending any more. Such a horrible experience.
Unfortunately I could only come Sun at the end fr very short time didn’t have time to evaluate properly. I’ve been coming fr many yrsalways enjoyed Need several hours ideally. Quality seemed lower too many beads.! Still would like to go again.
