This weekend is the 5th Annual NCHBA Home Show in Wenatchee. NCHBA is the North Central Homebuilders Association; so the show is all about construction, remodeling ideas, doors, flooring, decks , windows etc. And of course I am there to help people finance their construction or remodel project. There are no pots and pans or ginsu knives. I have participated in all 5 and I like the fact that it is construction focused and that there is an admission charge. As a vendor, the price of admission keeps it from being overrun with people who are just bored on a weekend, so the people coming through are really serious. This allows us to engage in meaningful conversations with people at our booth as we are not distracted handing out flyers to people who don't want them.
The other nice thing about this show is that 99% of the vendors are from the local area and do business in the local area; these are not people who fly into town to sell a product and then leave. At the website you can get all the times, a list of vendors, and print a $1 off coupon. You'll also find a list of the practical Do-It -Yourself demos that will be presented. If you bring your kids along, they can build a wooden project in the KidZone manned by our local Lowes store.
So come on by, walk around slowly and talk; we are Eastern Washington folks, and were not in a hurry. Tell us about your project and well get you hooked up with the right people to help you out.
