It’s a great way to spend the afternoon, whether you’re looking to remodel, repair, or re-decorate your home, or you’re just interested in finding a unique product that’s made locally!

Florida's Largest Home Show

I’ll be writing a few blog posts to highlight some of the companies I was especially interested in, including photos, company details, and contact information.

And, just for fun, here is a photo of me with an alligator from the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary Foundation:

I was sad that they wouldn’t let me keep the little guy…

And you’ll have to excuse my humidity-wracked hair that was pulled back into a messy ponytail.  It may be mid-October, but it’s still a little warm in Tampa.  🙂

You can get more info on the home show and find out about future dates at Florida’s Largest Home Show.
