Is it worth the time to go Sunday?

I went this morning, show was ok.  Bad part was it was only in two of the buildings, we were packed in like sardines, so I got what I needed and left.

Seemed like fewer tables in addition to the very tight aisles. Depending on where you live, Medina is in 2 weeks.

I'm up in Lyndhurst, so Medina is not terribly convenient.  I'd make the drive if it was worth it, though.

Is Medina better than Berea?  I would think that they should be about the same.

Don't waste your time Scott.  People were packed like cattle prices were high and Medina will be better if nothing else because the the ability to move and view the tables.  All in all I accomplished half of what I set out to do.

I hope that they (the promoter and county) don't kill that Berea show with stupid stuff.

Thanks, guys.

They won't, its just I think that the buildings they normally use were being used for winter storage, hence, less space for the show.

Berea was pretty poor this past weekend.  I got there pretty early on Saturday (around 9:05) and within I'd say 10-15 minutes, one of the buildings was already overcrowded.  They really have to start cutting out the jerky and trinket vendors and limiting the number of tables if they have limited venue space.  It's a freakin' gunshow....

Medina is always better.

Well, I guess I didn't miss anything.

I stayed home today and did laundry.

Medina is, for now on, the only Ohio show I'll be attending. The last Niles, OH show (Dec 21-22) was a bunch of fuks selling superglue, turkey jerky, bumper stickers, rubberband guns,...

..OK, I'll go to the St. Clairsville show, since it is 2 miles from my home...

Hey, I got a great deal on Orlites at the St.C show.  Wide Isles, no lines, no complaints here. The only thing about it was that the dealers didn't realize that folks in Belmont co. are looking for deals.  I think a bit more on the AK and C&R side would be better sellers than the high end expensive I'm affraid to take it in the woods stuff.

The Berea show absolutely sucked.
Some of the people brushing up against me... well, I'd rather not think about it.

As I understand it, those were the only two heated bldgs.
Still, that show is always way too crowded for me.
I've gotten a few good deals there in the past, but after the last show I won't be hurrying back.

Ha, I saw the superglue table at Niles. :)
