Home & Garden Show?

One of Hirshfield’s customers found this wonderful photo in his father’s belongings and passed it on to us. My guess is the Home & Garden Show, but what decade? Anyone want to venture a guess? I thought by the numbering on the back of the photo it was 1967, but I’m having my doubts.

Let this be your official notice… 2010 Home & Garden Show begins Wednesday, February 24 and runs through Sunday, February 28, 2010.

Highlights that caught my attention:

  • Timber Barn Bungalow – works as a lake retreat, hunting cabin or backyard studio (think small)
  • Celebrate Minnesota Gardens – refresh your winter soul with beautiful greens and flowers
  • Meat Raffle – never tried a meat raffle, but have always wanted to- proceeds to Emergency Food Shelf
  • Radio Disney – Kids get in free with library card on Friday
  • Sasha Andreev – Curb Appeal host
  • Christopher Straub – Minnesota’s Project Runway Designer
  • Pat Verlodt – WHO? Pat talks a mean game of color. She is an industry color expert; selecting paint lines, consulting with building product companies, and trend analysis. She is presenting “Trends in Color” on the Lifestyle Stage, at 2:00 on Saturday. Hirshfield’s is excited to sponsor Pat’s visit to the Home and Garden Show; her audiences always rave about her presentations.
  • That’s not all. Hirshfield’s is having a fun, fun contest, but I can’t tell you anything more about the contest. I asked my boss twice if I could put out “feelers” and I was turned away each time with a huge, “NO! Not yet, we’re not ready.” I know I am sorely testing his patience, but I can’t help myself…stay tuned. Now I’m worried, I think I broke my promise to him to keep quiet.

Look for Hirshfield’s at booth #2306.

Shop local…68¢ out of your dollar stays in the community when you support locally owned businesses versus 43¢ at non-local businesses. Minnesotans hang on to your pennies, let’s not lose any more jobs.

    OOh, can’t wait to hear about the contest. This photo is amazing! I wish I could page through that book of wallpaper samples right now.

    Love the photo! It looks very ’40s to me.

    Isn’t it remarkable how well dressed and fashionable everyone is?

    And how cute is that young lady in her dress? In the actual photo the young man and lady look almost like wax mannequins.
