Inaugural home and garden show set for this weekend

Proceeds to benefit Sheltering Wings

DANVILLE — Becky Homko's reason for starting a home and garden show in Hendricks County was simple - there wasn't such an event here.

"We came up with a home show because we looked around and didn't see one here," said Homko, who with her husband runs Today's Business Services.

The first Hendricks County Home and Garden Show is set for 3 to 9 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex, 1900 E. Main St.

Despite this being the inaugural edition, Homko sold out of vendor space. More than 85 businesses - some local and others from around the state and even the country - will be on hand, offering a variety of services. A complete list is available online at HendricksHomeShow.com.

"I even have a waiting list going," Homko said of the vendors. "I thought that I would sell out on vendor space because of the draw a home show has, along with it just being centrally located in Hendricks County as opposed to having to drive to the State Fairgrounds or up to Carmel."

In addition to the businesses, the event includes Lemonade Day, an entrepreneurial program that teaches children how to start and run a lemonade stand. State Bank of Lizton representatives will be on hand to register participants and distribute backpacks for free. The Hendricks County Community Foundation also is collaborating to provide a list of local funds for Lemonade Day participants to use in the philanthropic section of the program.

Tickets to the home and garden show are $10 at the door or $5 in advance at State Bank of Lizton and Indiana Members Credit Union locations. There are also $5 coupons available through the Money Mailer and on the home and garden show website using the promo code "flyer." The Hendricks County Flyer is one of the show's sponsors.
