Tulsa Gem Faire


Last weekend was the summer bead show here in Tulsa. I will be posting over the week on all my goodies. I went twice. On Friday I went 1/2 hour after it opened. It was so crowded you really couldn't do much shopping. Any tables w/ good deals were 3~4 deep & you couldn't get close enough to shop.The aisles were also full of groups of friends visiting(come on chix, go to the empty part of the show to visit, see that other 1/2 that isn't full of people trying to get around your group?) I had the kids w/ me,(I keep them on Fridays when they don't have camp)so we were only part of the crowd problem, not a solution! I went back on Sunday about 20 minutes after they opened. What a difference! I had a good idea of the layout from my previous visit & walked around the show one time to be sure of where I wanted to buy.I shopped for about an hour & was done as it was getting crowded again. First shot, all the purchases in their bags
