• "Sure hope you survive and thrive. Loved the show and will be there next year with friends for sure." D.S.

• "I hope the Armory will become as standard a venue for events as the Building Museum, Convention Center, and Departmental Auditorium have been. Artists were philosophical, reflecting that it takes some time to build a new event. I agree with that camp." B.E.

• "I really had no expectations, but was glad to see many of the vendors I've patronized or enjoyed visiting with in the past, plus some newcomers." G.L.
