What an amazing day! I got to meet and interact with so many wonderful and amazing people! There was a steady stream of people coming through the Times Union Home Expo this afternoon. The crowd was in good spirits despite the brisk 20 degree temperature. There was a great amount of anticipation as the last few  vendors were busy putting together the final touches on their booths for the annual Home Expo.


Some familiar faces…Like a good neighbor State Farm was there!! Erik, Colleen Jolene and Jennifer are my neighbors again this year, at booth #329.Providing a friendly environment where members of our local community can find guidance in their financial decision. State farm will all be there to help protect you from what can go wrong, so that everything else can go right!

Curtis lumber is with us this year in two locations! On the Upper Concourse, come talk kitchens with Curtis in booth 321-322 and on the lower level to answer all your building product questions at booth 126-127, remember great endings begin here!

Stop by the Rising Star Chef Pavilion at the Adirondack Appliance Culinary Stage on the lower level booths 151-156. Catch some of the Capital Region’s most promising up-and-coming chefs doing demos and food samplings throughout the weekend. Tom Thibeault and Chef Mabb from The Ruck and the Next Level were on hand today cooking up some delicious latkes! (Recipe’s are supplied for all the samplings…YUM!)

Ahhh…. One of my favorite stones! Calacatta Vagli, by Polar Stone. I just used this beautiful quartz in a kitchen I desinged in Saratoga. PMI understands the needs of Designers and goes the extra step to ensure that our clients experience is second to none. The PMI warehouse is amazing to walk through, outstanding, beautiful slabs on display for you or your client to gaze at. Their knowledgeable staff is always attentive and helpful to lead you to the best stone for your lifestyle. PMI is located at 142-143 stop in and see this amazing quartz.
