I see that you too were brave enough to attend the woodworkiing show. What a ZOO!!
The building was way over capacity, they need to move it into a larger hall. The customers were angry because they couldn’t find a place to park, let alone there was no where to move once inside and the vendors were nasty because they were overrun with customers.
I’ve been to many shows but never this one, it was by far the worst and will be my last unless they move it….

Thanks for your feedback. There are simply no other venues in the St. Louis area. If you know of any – let us know.

I too went to the St. Louis show. This was my first time so I didnt know what to expect.. When you say zoo thats an understatement!! I really had a hard time getting up to some booths close enough to see things! That hall is just too small for the amount of people it draws.. I went friday thinking it would be less crowded then the other days.. Man I was wrong! I do hope they can find another place!
