Default Stampfest - Clearwater, FL?

Has anyone ever been to this? Have any reviews? I'm going to be 45 minutes away on a trip to FL and was wondering if it's worth going.

Thanks!

Default Stampfest

I missed last year's show, but have been to about 4 or 5 other February Stampfest shows. They also do a summer show in the Orlando area. Their summer show is generally bigger - more vendors, but I enjoy the February show as well. In the past there have been probably about 40-50 vendors. Last year they moved the February show to a new location, so I'm not exactly sure how this new location compares. I definitely think it's worth a 45 minute drive.

I go to the Orlando show every year and love it. Great variety of vendors and product.

I've been to both - the Orlando one is bigger, but they're both worth the trip. Many of the vendors do make and takes and give mini-presentations. You get to see a lot of new stuff and several of my favorite stamp vendors are always there.

Since I can't find the answer on their site....can you just show up and buy a ticket to go in? Or do you have to pre-buy your entrance ticket? I'm not talking about taking a class....just to go into the Stampfest.
Thanks

Yes you can just show up and pay admission at the door!

Anyone else have plans to attend? If I thought I could get a flight out I would be there myself! This darn snow . . .

Hey, Sherry ~ Hope you can make it. My sister and I are meeting up on Friday to attend a class and do the Make-and-Take. I'll be looking for you!

Hey Lois, how are you? I don't think I'm going to make it now (still a little afraid to fly . . . I go back to the doctor on Friday for my 6 week checkup) BUT I will for sure be there for the Orlando StampFest!

I'll be there! It's a good show, not sure if it's worth a flight to go though. I'm excited!

I usually attend every year. It's a lot of fun. Great ideas, some great shopping, and I always come home inspired.

Not sure how much a flight from LaLa Land costs.

It is a lot of fun. Be sure to bring a camera to take pictures of all the samples. I'm not taking any of the classes, but a lot of the vendors do demonstrations and I always learn a few new techniques. And I always get at least one great new tool. Not to mention LOTS of stamps!

This will be my 3rd year in a row. It is $7 at the door & there are usually 30 or more vendors. I live in Orlando & that show is bigger, but Clearwater is within driving distance, so I try not to miss it. There are not that many shows anymore, so to me, they're all good!!
