The home and garden fair closes a successful weekend

TWP WILKES-BARRE. – The 20th anniversary edition of the Northeast Pennsylvania Home and Garden Show wrapped up the weekend with a final day of showcases from hundreds of vendors from across the state.

Sunday marked the third day of activity at the Mohegan Sun Arena, as interested shoppers scoured the hall and the arena floor to find something for their home, garden or just for themselves.

A few successful vendors in the middle of some of the more home-focused stops were a handful of food vendors, perhaps no more than Mike’s Seasonings.

Once the customers’ taste buds had been sated, there were still nearly a hundred unusual stops to be made along the way around the arena.

Business owners stood at each booth or table to help customers, provide information, or entice shoppers to try and win prizes, such as the giant wheel at the Xfinity booth that offered different prizes for those who turned it.

“It’s really good for my energy, it’s therapeutic in a way,” she said.

On the arena floor, Dave Yeager of Concrete Alternatives brought his company to his first-ever Home and Garden Show.

“We’ve had a lot of people stop by,” said Yeager, who’s owned his Drums-based business for 15 years. “It was really a valid decision to sign up, I’m glad we’re here.”
