They usually cut down prices on the last day… although down side is, there will be items out of stock by then. If what you’re looking for isn’t one of those limited-stocks-only-items, might want to go check offers on the show’s last day :)

Did anyone come across any great deals worth checking out? I’ve been wanting to go down but the thought of jostling with the massive crowd stopped me.
