    It would be a 3hr drive for me, so would like to know if worth it.... [​IMG]

    I went to both the spring and summer ones. I was not at all impressed in the spring. Someone posted on here for the summer one and replied to my comment, so I gave it another chance. There was much more during the summer, more variety, more vendors, nicer selections. I think this is their first year and they are getting off the ground. I will go again in September to see if it continues to improve that is unless I get stuck working (just changed jobs so won't be able to switch for it.) My drive is 1.5 hrs to get there.

    I went this year in early spring and the weather was horrid, so the turn out for both buyers and sellers was down I think. I've been told it's a pretty big deal, but we were busy for the summer edition. I may give it another try in the fall, but if your looking for quality, just wait for the Ohio Nationals in November and have a look around the sale pens there....good stuff!
