The show was alright, but it's been small for a couple of years since the old backers left and Subaru took over. I think they're just getting on with starting over and building up. It would be nice if they'd had more shows, and lemmie tell you, I was disappointed when they didn't have a projector so I could do my seminars with my powerpoint. Granted, I should have made the request, but I just still can't believe that NONE of the other lecturers used a professional presentation to do their lecture with. I had to settle with sending out everyone a copy of my seminars via email.
I had a great time getting the cheap stuff at closeouts. Due to the craziness of the weekend, I wasn't able to get to the swap meet- I was too busy dragging stuff back and forth from my crib to Navy Pier. I'm still beat from all the work I ended up doing for that show.
I'm crossing my fingers and hoping they continue to work on expanding it out. I like the location, though. It was a great day on Saturday and Sunday. 74 degrees! Freakin' awesome!
