Default Did you have fun at the Craft & Hobby show?

I had a great time! My legs are ready to fall off now.

There was so much to see there! I shipped back 9 boxes of stuff! Did anyone else ship stuff back home? I didn't use Fed-Ex, they charge a $10 handling fee at the Convention Center...this is on top of the shipping fee.

There was a Post Office mini-sub station inside the Jolly Roger hotel right on Katella--it was walking distance from the Convention Center. You can pick up Priority boxes there for FREE. You can package them up at your hotel and bring them back there to ship or go to USPS.com to print and pay for a shipping label (if you know the weight or if you use a FLAT RATE box, then any weight is fine) and schedule for a Postal Carrier to pick up your package from the Hotel too. No extra fee!

It was fun! I heard that attendance was down this year??? It didn't seem that crowded.

It was a lot of fun. I met a lot of really cool people and did see some truly great products.

The big bummer for me was the lack of exciting new product or vendors. After an hour or so, much of the scrap/stamp stuff started looking the same. There were awesome items there, don't get me wrong, but (overall) the majority didn't feel as fresh or as original as in previous years.
