I was also in Chicago this weekend for the festival with 2 bus loads of orchid enthusiasts from the Orchid Society of Minnesota. We had a great time. Here's my purchases as best as I can remember:

Windsong: this is my wife Julie's stop. She got a half dozen mini's and a beautiful Laelia hybid from Ecuagenera and Hoosier Orchids

Natt's:
Paph Fanaticum (in bud)
2 Paph charlesworthii's (1 in bud)
Laelia lucasiana
plus more mini's by Julie

Oak Hill
15 Paph Barbilights (most small and in bud)
6 Paph Tyke
Paph Paeony 'Regency' AM/AOS (division)
Julie went nuts on the mini's at J&L and Andy's and Oak Hill

Hausermans
3 Paph (Incredible x charlesworthii) in bud
2 Paph (Ruby Mist x henryanum) in bud

Orchid Inn
1 flask of Paph leucochilum
Paph henryanum in bloom

That was probably us. When we shop, WE SHOP! There seems to be a kind of synergy at play when you have 70 people who know each other, encourage each other and share information with each other. For example, when I'm shopping and need information on a certain genera, like Vandas, I need only find Esther, another OSM member, to get all I need to know. Conversely, I get many questions about slipper orchids from other members as they are shopping. Also, when there is a good deal on something, word spreads quickly.
