Me, too, Brae. You have a knack for spotting the unique.

It’s almost that time again.  Who’s going? I will be there on Saturday.  I’ll be the 6’3” guy who looks out of place and a bit lost.

I almost took a class this year but a $400 vet bill put the kibosh on that.  There’s always next year.

YEAH! I will be there it's my very first time. I'm taking a couple of classes .Not sure I'll make all three shows like I originally planed. I had to change and leave back home early Saturday for a wedding Saturday evening I forgot about. I really lucked out as my hubby had some business in Chicago and I'm tagging along.

I'm so excited to go

Thanks I will pack some snacks and water for sure. I'm taking full advantage of being there . I even took a night class making tulips and a class using a jewelers saw. I actually made my list of tables I want to see for sure ( someone had suggested this ) I'm sure I get overwhelmed and just stare.

I live in Chicago and I think that three shows in one weekend is overwhelming!  I remember going to the Tom Bishop shows as a child and look forward to going to that one first.

The trick for me was that no matter how amazing everything is, I moved as fast as my eyes let me from one table to the next. I just stopped a bit more when I found something that I remembered I was looking for (no time to be looking at your wish list if you made one, try to memorize your things to save some time while walking). Finding a specific table might cut precious time; i made my walking route and was determined to walk in front of every table, so when I found the tables that I was after, Bingo!, made my purchase if what I wanted was still available, and kept moving! You will fill less overwhelmed this way, at least it worked for me, and i didn't feel that I missed too much. I did the same for all 3 shows, and I pretty much saw everything in one day. :D
