  1. Timing is everything. The emporium is popular so try coming during the shoulder times – a couple of hours after opening or the last couple of hours. Budget 2 – 3 hours to see everything.
  2. Lines, lines, and lines.  In order to keep the crowds down inside, the organizers will limit  the number of guests allowed in at a time, so expect a line. However, the line moves pretty fast since they usually let in groups of people at once.
  3. Eats: Find small batch vendors inside and look for food trucks outside.
  4. Be decisive: If you see something you like consider buying it pronto – the wares are not mass-produced so vendors have limited stock.
  5. BYOB: Bring your reusable bag to hold your goodies.
  6. Consider bringing some snacks and water.
  7. Bring cash. Not all vendors accept plastic. Therefore be prepared with greenbacks (and consider [politely] inquiring about a cash discount from vendors accepting plastic or checks.)
  8. Vendor map. Click here for a handy vendor map.
  9. Pier 35 pet policy:  only service dogs are allowed.
