I hate to be picky (yeah, right...), but I can't find any free admission offers for the NY Frame Show ... am I correct in concluding that there's no way to avoid a $10 fee for this? If you have info that garners free tickets, please let me know.
From past experience, I know that as soon as you break down and purchase the $10 ticket to save buying a $20 ticket at the door, the very next day you will receive seven free admission offers from vendors.
Live on the wild side and wait a little while longer!
Oddly enough, my LJ rep just called. They will be getting passes to distribute to framers in about a week. It seems the show is being run by a different organization this year, and not quite up to speed on shmoozing us framers .... they actually intended to charge at least $10 a head to us....
