Something New: Spring Home and Gift Show

by marlys goodThere will be a little bit of everything and something for everyone at Greybull’s first-ever Spring Home and Gift Show Saturday, March 10 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Herb Asp Community Center.According to Heather Howe of the Greybull Recreation District, “We are trying to draw area and small businesses, as well as individuals, to let people see what this area has to offer. It is similar to the Christmas bazaar but with a wider variety of items. We have vendors coming who have never participated in bazaars before and we have a lot of very talented people in this area who need a venue such as this.”There will be homemade lotions, soaps, hats, scarves, home-baked goods, rough-cut wood furniture, pottery, jewelry, a bridal/wedding section that even offers rentals, cabinetry, a full line of mattresses, and all-occasion gifts – Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduation, baby, wedding and birthday, and much more.Because of the larger items being offered, the number of booths has been downsized to 50.Howe said the idea of a Home Improvement Show was discussed last year, but “It fell into the category of, would it be big enough to draw in enough people? We put it on the back burner and decided to think about it for another year and then decided to expand on it.”Breakfast and lunch will be offered and tables will be set aside so diners can eat in comfort, or have a place to sit while their “better halves” are browsing the aisles.All proceeds from the show will go into the general fund. Said Recreation Director Chris Waite, “We are saving money for improvements to the building – specifically the walls.”Howe said she was excited about the Home and Gift Show. “I really hope it goes over well.”
