I'm getting in for free since my sister is taking classes, and they give free guest passes along with her registration. There aren't any freebies here, purely sales but the prices are really good if you are heavily into lapidary.
Like I mentioned before, if you are really into jewelry making the savings on supplies is worth the entry. Owners of bead stores go there to purchase inventory for their stores, since you can actually handle the product before you buy. I'm a "feel" shopper, so buying this type of stuff online ends up in dissapointment.
