   That's exactly right. A lot of the vendors have sold their stuff and
left by 1:30. That why you found piles of trash that they'd left. I
usually register as a vendor and pay the extra fee just so I can get in
ahead of the public. I can tell you for a fact that the BEST deals happen
long before the public gets in the door. If I couldn't get there before
1:30 I would bother going even if it was across the street!
