New Vendors, Returning Favorites Set Up at the 2022 Home & Garden Show


Although the weather forecast this weekend is anything but spring-like, visitors to the Home and Garden Show 2022 were preparing for spring and summer home improvement projects.

The show kicked off at noon Friday with dozens of representatives from construction, home improvement and landscaping companies, as well as vendors selling pet food, beauty products, groceries and more.

With the show going virtual in 2021 due to the pandemic, vendors, businesses, organizations and visitors were thrilled to be back at Island Grove Regional Park and Event Center for the in-person production.

“I’ve been coming to this show for about five or six years, and it’s a big market. We did well at virtual events. We didn’t do badly, but I much prefer the show in person,” Pamma Sharma said with Maverick Beauty. “It’s a good show overall.”

McDonald Toyota returned to the 2022 event with some of the dealership’s cars and trucks on display, and McCreery & Sun provided bags for show visitors.

From gutters and decorative concrete to windows and spas, sellers have posted everything you’ll need for a number of DIY projects as well as professional installations.

If your kitchen or bathroom counters are looking a little dated, but you don’t have the paste to replace them, you might want to think about refinishing them.

Shalin Patel, owner of Miracle Method Surface Refinishing in Fort Collins, introduced visitors to his booth by explaining how resurfacing countertops, sinks, showers and tubs can save homeowners hundreds of dollars over replacing them. .

“We’ve spent the last week working on our samples so people can see what the counters look like when they’re refurbished,” Patel said. “Resurfacing is much cheaper and you don’t run the risk of damaging cabinetry, which can happen when countertops are removed and replaced.”

Porcelain, fiberglass, acrylic, laminate, Formica, tile, cultured marble, ceramic tile, and Corian are just a few of the surfaces the company can refinish. With proper care, refurbished countertops, sinks, showers and tubs have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years or more.

Most of Patel’s refinishing projects take between one and two days, depending on the size of the project, and his company offers dozens of color choices. For more information on Miracle Method Surface Refinishing, please visit www.MiracleMethod.com.

New to the show this year is Silverline Structures of Platteville. The company designs and installs garages, workshops, barns, sheds, commercial structures, barndominiums, carports and more throughout Colorado and 22 other states in the United States.

“We’re already in County Weld, just down the road from here, and this show helps people see us and we can let them know what we’re up to,” Kris McCarty said. “Everyone does all kinds of garden projects and needs garages and places to store things. Along with boats, jet skis, and toys, people need buildings to put those things in.

Another new supplier to the show is Pet Wants. The online pet supply store sells all-natural pet supplies, treats, food, chews, and other treats like dog beer. Good Boy Dog Beer is a non-alcoholic beer for pooches that contains 12 ounces of different fresh ingredients like chicken, turmeric, oranges, carrots, and filtered water.

“You just pour it into a little bowl or over their food,” said Stuart Brown of Boulder. “You can give it to them for their birthday or just as a treat.”

Pet parents can choose from four different beers: Crotch Sniffin’ Ale, Good Girl Dog Beer, IPA Lot In The Yard, and Mailman Malt Licker.

Pet Wants guarantees the freshness of its products while foods and treats from many big box stores can stay on the shelves for up to two years, said Sharon Hodge of Broomfield.

“We guarantee that our food is less than four months old at all times and delivered by the pound direct to the customer,” she said. “Like Chewy, customers can sign up for recurring product delivery so they never run out.”

The Home and Garden Fair is not just for homeowners. There are plenty of vendors and stalls for people who are renting a house, apartment, condo, or other residence.

Warm Hugs, Crumbl Cookies, House of Faux, Scentual Products, Mile High Chimes and the Sleep Store were all on hand with home decorations, food samples and other cool products for homes of all shapes and sizes.

M and M and Things brought their specialty dip mixes to the show for the first time, and judging by the long line outside their booth, their dips were a hit. The Colorado-based company uses herbs and avoids gluten, MSG and salt.

“The Greeley area is a new market for us. We did the Home and Garden Show at the Ranch, and a lot of people responded to our Facebook page asking us to come to Greeley,” Dennis Deshaney said. “They had a spot available so we decided to come and try it out for the weekend. The response so far has been fantastic.

The company sells a wide variety of dips, including savory, sweet and, for those who want a little spice, hot and spicy.

“Our number one flavor is our artichoke and spinach,” Deshaney said. “It sells two for one.”
