    Like everyone says-bring $$$ and good comfortable walking shoes. If your show is anything like the show here in Houston, be prepared to stand in lines. Take water also.

    I second all of the above. Also, I like to make a first run through the vendor and quilt areas just to look at first so I don't feel quite as overwhelmed. Once I make a second go around I always discover more about the quilts and vendors. I love to check out the unique products from the vendors-things I can't find easily close to home.

    I agree, take $, but take cash if you are on a budget. Leave the plastic at home where it won’t get you in trouble.

    Agree with the other suggestions you have, will add that if you have a cross body handbag that holds the bare necessities like money, credit cards, lip balm, tissue, phone and keys will make your adventure easier. Your hands will be free, you will not have excess weight on your shoulder, and your purse will be close to your body so you can keep a check on it. One you can access without taking it off your body is even better. I put a very small wallet with just my drivers license if I am driving, the credit card I plan to use and my cash, in my cross body bag. No need for anything bulky or heavy or those other things that find their way into a handbag.
    Have a great time!
