Last Saturday the Northfield Home and Garden show was held a the new Middle School. It was a perfect day for a home show .sunny, warm weather, but the ground was still frozen so people were not working in their yards. They were thinking about home and garden projects and showed up at the show.
Phil Olson, Chris Smisek and Tristan Cox staffed the Northfield Construction Company booth this year. We had photographs of completed projects, project portfolios and exhibits of work in progress. This year we also had door prizes four $49.95 oil change gift certificates at Oil Can Henrys, currently being constructed across from Target. We also had some rulers, pencils, pens, and yard sticks as gifts this year.
Tristan was able to chat with a lot of people he knows, including the parents of some of his high school friends.
There were lots of area businesses at the show. Some, like Northfield Construction Company, have been attending the show for many years. For others this was their first year. A couple of long time participants are Kes Water Equipment and Knecht Nursery and Landscaping.
Mark Lange, owner of Careful Painting, had a good booth and was dressed in his usual painter whites.
Folks from Just Foods, the new cooperative grocery store in Northfield were there. It was good to see this new business there getting the word out to people about the great foods they carry.
Diane and Lori from Youngs Paint were there to answer all your painting questions. Youngs in Dundas is a full service painting supply store. You would be hard pressed to find a more complete paint and accessory store.
It is a long day to be at the Home and Garden show all day. Chris Smisek had his wife and children stop by to see him at the show.
The 2005 Home and Garden Show went very well in its new location….and we had a very busy day.
