"It does.  I think since I am just getting started I might just visit the show and see what's  up.  I am not quite sure I could recoup my booth fee.  Of course, maybe if I kept my booth open until 10pm, I might sell more to…"

"I did.  All reviews are from 2011-2012 and I wanted something more current. I only saw one good review on Yelp for the 2016 show.  I was just trying to get updated information. Thanks Connie!  "
