You don’t have to be seeking home improvement advice or gardening tips to benefit from visiting the fifth annual Home Garden Show.

Hosted by the Aiken Standard, the event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in Gym Two of H. Odell Weeks Activities Center, 1700 Whiskey Road.

Almost 30 Home Grown vendors and more than 40 Home Show exhibitors will be present.

“We have anywhere from gardening, landscaping needs to kitchen makeovers and remodeling,” said Diane Daniell, the event coordinator and the newspaper’s advertising retail sales manager. “There will be items to purchase from our Home Grown vendors from homemade food, hand crafted jewelry to wood carvings and much, much more.”

The Home Grown vendors also will feature products such as dreamcatchers, birdhouses, handmade soaps, artwork, Christian novels and musical instruments.

The Home Show exhibitors can discuss items and services such as cutlery, paints, roofing, cosmetics, dentistry and even pet adoptions.

The vendors and exhibitors are coming from various parts of South Carolina, including Aiken County.

J.D. Norris, the owner-operator of DreamMaker Bath Kitchen, will return to do a series of presentations.

Norris also is a certified S.C. master builder, certified Aging-in-Place specialist, certified Green Professional and writes a regular, do-it-yourself column for the Aiken Standard.

His demonstration will cover the topics: How to Repair a Broken Tile, Painting Tips to Remember and Caulk Next Time Like a Pro.

Norris will be presenting at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Friday and at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday.

The expert said his demonstrations are based off the concept of his column and take a lot of time to get ready.

“It’s fun,” he said. “I enjoy teaching and demonstrating things of (this) nature. … Performing these tasks, for me, is enjoyable. I enjoy this type of work.”

He is the show’s DIY sponsor. The presenting sponsors are Southern Siding Window Company and Enloe.

Each of the three sponsors will have a booth.

There also will be door prizes and Aiken County Habitat for Humanity’s silent auction.

Admission is $1 for those 12 and older and free for those younger than 12.

Only cash will be accepted, and proceeds benefit the Aiken County Habitat for Humanity.
