By Kara Hallissey | Oct 26, 2017

(Oct. 27, 2017) The Autumn Home and Condo Show with arts and crafts returns to Ocean City for two days this weekend at the convention center on 40th Street.

Homeowners have the opportunity to browse 130 vendors showcasing merchandise and demonstrating products such as kitchens, baths, appliances, furnishings, spas, hot tubs, fireplaces, patios, decks, home entertainment, sunrooms, security, maintenance, energy, gardening, cleaning services and air conditioning.

“This is the place to go and see the latest and greatest or traditional products,” said Ocean Promotions owner Mike Wicklein. “It is a good opportunity to compare and shop around, [with] all-under-one-roof convenience. There may be three different people who are experts on the same type of renovation. They can give quotes, estimates and advice.”

Thousands of ideas or products for kitchens, baths, furnishing, accessories, energy conservation, water treatment, security, financial services and outdoor living can be found at the show.

The same products can be compared between different vendors to find the best fit for the customer at a reasonable price.

There will be experts on hand to give tips, advice and ideas on decorating, remodeling, accessorizing, renovating, landscaping or building a home.

There will be 20 new vendors at the show this year including Bright Coast Builders and Renovators, Chesapeake Benefit Services, Cole Construction, Embrace Home Loans, Homefix Custom Remodeling, Homeworks Carpet One, Northeastern Design Studio, Pinnacle Concrete Coatings, Security Instrument Corp., Sleep Number and Tidewater Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Associates.

The show partners with the arts and crafts fair, which offers a variety of unique and creative gifts made by the artists.

Exhibitor experts such as contractors, landscapers, architects and interior designers will be at the event to help homeowners with their projects and ideas. There will be samples of flooring, windows, doors and solar products.

Thousands of people attend the annual event, and weather is a factor in the numbers. Around 5,000 people attended the show last year.

The autumn show is in its seventh year, which is an offshoot of the spring show, in its 33rd year. The Home Show is designed to enhance home comfort, functionality, appeal and overall value. Organizers want consumers to come with an open mind and leave with an inspiration. Many vendors will offer bargains or special deals.

The event allows people to shop and compare, while finding the right products and services at a great price. There will be artists and crafters from all over to provide an assortment of gifts and accessories.

The show will take place Saturday, Oct. 28, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 29, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There is a $6 admission fee for adults; seniors (55 and older) and students (14-22) get in for $5. Also, military, police, fire personnel with their ID and children 13 and under get in free. Free drawings and door prizes will also take place during the event.
