My first trip to a bead show

On Friday, September 28th I went to my very first bead show in Toronto. I went to the Bead Oasis show at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. I had a pretty good time, although Toronto traffic I don't like at all! It took over 1/2 an hour to get from the Convention center to the highway on our way home.
Money is very tight with hubby not working so I didn't get much. Although I could have bought so much more, especially fresh water pearls. They are a weakness of mine...I just love all the shapes and colours there are. I did buy a strand of bronzy/coppery round disk pearls, not to sure what they will become yet. I also bought some of my other weakness...Swarovski's! Here are a couple of pictures of my new goodies.
All in all it was a good experience...overwhelming, but good!
