Default Me me me me me!

My friend and I will be there from Lansing.
I'm vacillating signing up to be a demo, and I'm soooo broke since I've gotten into SU, but we'll still be there.

I particularly like Paula Best designs, and I always like to see any new sparkly things. I'm a magpie at best.

No classes or anything for us, but we'll spend the day, I'm sure.

Can't make it this year. But I didn't see Darcie's on the list, so I wasn't too bummed.

Basically, it's just one big shopping experience if you don't take classes.

I went last year and didn't buy a thing...wasted 10 dollars to walk around. So I think I'm going to give it a miss. A lot of the vendors have pulled out of Auntie Amy's show because of Auntie Amy herself (she's kind of...um...opinionated. ) I met her myself a couple of years ago (I worked as a greeter at the show for an hour), but that wasn't a long period of time to get to know her.

Be prepared to wait in lines, so wear comfortable shoes. When I go, I set myself a limit of what I will spend...sometimes I only take cash to make sure that's all I spend. It's also a great idea to have a large tote bag so you can put all your purchases in one bag.

Yeah, I heard she was going to be there. Much as I adore Carol, I couldn't have gotten up there today even if I wanted to...one car on the fritz and the church bulletin to run meant I had to wait my turn for the car.

Okay, here's a stupid question...
Is there a dress code? I mean, which would be better: wearing shorts and a nice top ~or~ a sundress?
Thanks!

My SIL went today and she said it was nice and cool inside, rather busy today but she had a great time. $5.00 for parking plus admission. She said 58 vendors were there.

I went, love going, had a great time yet again. Spent way more than I should have. Neighbor had never gone to one before, her mouth was hanging open. I always get my ticket in advance, cheaper and you can go for both days if you so desire.
I am considering going tomorrow too just to see demos I didn't get to and a couple booths we missed.
The only one I thought was lame was a Stampin to See You one in K'zoo a couple years ago. Very small and I think half of the booths were owned by the organizer!

My daughter drove up from Ohio and we met up with two friends and had a ball! I think everything I bought has a Asian theme. It's so hard to find that locally. I thought there was a great variety things to look at. I wish I had more time to look at all the demos though.
