The HBA of Greenville is gearing up for the inaugural Fall Southern Home & Garden Show, October 30 – November 1 at the Carolina First Center. The Fall Show, much like the Spring Show, is a chance for attendees to see the latest in products and services for the home under one roof. Over 100 exhibitors have signed up for booth space. Lowe’s is proud sponsor of the 2009 Fall Southern Home & Garden Show.

One of the biggest features of the Fall Show is Trick-or Treat Night, where the Home Show becomes a safe and all-weather location for children to trick-or-treat, and parents have the added bonus of touring the Show exhibits! Parents accompanying a child in costume receive free admission after 5 p.m. There will also be a special Costume Contest at 6 p.m. for children 12 and under.

The Fall Show will also feature free antique appraisals by Danny Perkins of the Danny Co. Dust off your antiques and raid your attic for items – you never know when your trash might be someone else’s treasure! Please, only hand-carry items that would fit through a standard door, and no weapons will be permitted.
