I'm going to be cliche here and say meeting a bunch of pony collectors! But seriously everyone was so super nice. The shopping was amazing! I wish I could have escaped my booth more to buy more stuff.  I'm seeing stuff in vendor area pics and videos and I'm like "darn! I completely missed that".  Although to be fair I completely overspent by like almost triple my budget.  I blame Tobi though and all her amazing stuff!

I didnt get to attend any of the events or talks.  I would have loved to see Sarah Keefers water color demonstration.  If anyone has a video of it I'd love to see!

Still had an awesome time! Anyone else experiencing pony fever?  I find for a few weeks after the fair I go on a bit of a pony buying spree and frequent the board a tons more.

Going to the Fair is like going to summer camp: you get to see all your friends that you don't see (in person) any other time of the year. And you get to geek out about ponies with other collectors for two days straight!

The contest entries and costumes were all just mind-blowing my amazing this year too!

see, you can budget all you want, but it seems like every year there's at least one person vending whose AWESOME STUFF you didn't plan on. LOL

We had a money "malfundction"  (new word!!) so was not able to to go as crazy as we wanted to.  Happily, Newborn Leaper did not get snatched up and is on his way to meee!!!!! 
And let's face it, getting to dig through big totes of ponies...  What's not to love?
