“We will have top-notch exhibitors with experts in their fields ready to help and engage with potential customers face-to-face,” said Diane Daniell, event coordinator and Aiken Standard’s sales and special projects manager. “This event brings exhibitors their target audience, homeowners ready to build, renovate, decorate and landscape.”

There are more than 50 vendors showcasing products and services for the event, which Daniell said is the largest number of vendors in event history.

Several vendors are new this year, so attendees can get a Fall Home & Garden Show guide in the Aiken Standard on Wednesday, Sept. 20.

This year’s DIY sponsor is DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen owner JD Norris.
