    I am ridiculously excited about Crafty Bastards - I can't wait! Quick question - above it states the fair opens at 10am, that VIP ticket holders get in 90 min before it opens - yet when I go to purchase the VIP ticket it says VIP admission is at 930am... is my excitement blurring my vision or is there a typo somewhere? Looks like it's really only 30 min advance entry for VIPs not 90 min?

    VIP entry starts at 9:30am
    Regular admission begins at 11am

    so VIPs get 90 minutes before everyone else.

    So glad you are excited! Wait til you see the vendor gallery. :)

    Thanks for the reply Tina!! FYI if you're one of the organizers - all of the press releases, the post above, the banner ad at the top of this page and the emails going out from City Paper say start of 10am. I'm still excited but wonder if my $25 on a VIP pass was well spent or would I be annoyed to drive all the way in to be there at 10am only to find out it doesn't open for another hour...

    Thanks Sue! Yep, we know and are in the process of fixing all!
