Sooner than you know, spring will be here and home updates will be on the top of the to do list. To help with ideas and vendor choices, the three chambers of commerce in Lake County; Eastern Lake County Chamber of Commerce, Mentor Area Chamber of Commerce and Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce, will hold the fifth annual Home & Lifestyle Expo on Saturday, March 2nd at Great Lakes Mall in Mentor.
The Expo will kick off at 10:00 a.m. and run until 6:00 p.m. This popular event provides attendees ideas, inspiration, innovative products and practical advice in remodeling, home improvement, gardening and lifestyle. Representatives from local companies, contractors, remodelers and designers will all be in one location to answer questions, provide suggestions and explore ideas for all aspects of home improvement needs both inside and out.
Come early as the first 300 attendees will receive a free gift bag. Two lucky attendees will take home a $50 gift card found in their bag! Entertainment is a big part of the Expo with a culinary demonstration, dance performance and two fashion shows on the entertainment stage located in front of Macy’s. WINT Integrity Radio 101.5FM/1330 AM will emcee the Expo.
New this year is an Upcycle Repurpose Contest. All items entered will be on display during the Expo hours. Suggested items for entry into the contest were furniture, accessories/home decor, clothing or jewelry. The contest was designed to inspire others to enhance their home and lifestyle with items they may already own or would have thrown away. Votes will be cast and the item with the majority votes will win “Best of the Expo” and a $100 cash prize.
