House and Garden Show now set for Thursday, June 20th

By The Block Island Times | Jun 14, 2013


The second annual House and Garden (H&G) show will be held on Thursday, June 20th, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m at The Sullivan House (rescheduled from June 13th due to the weather). With over 20 confirmed vendors, the show gives an opportunity to learn about new products and services.

Don’t forget to bring your iPad either, for there will be live demonstrations of a high-speed internet service available on-island, called Exede. If H&G attendees bring a laptop, cell phone, or tablet, they can use the satellite’s wireless signal.

A number of door prizes will be awarded including: a Netgear Wireless Router, a potted Bear Oak tree, a 1000 gallon septic system pumpout, round trip High Speed Ferry Tickets and much more.

The event is sponsored by United Builders Supply, The Block Island Times and The Sullivan House, and will feature live music, food, soft drinks and complimentary beer provided by Newport Storm. Live music will be performed by Virginia Dare. Admission is $10 at the door and proceeds will be divided between Block Island Residents Association (BIRA), and the Block Island Gardeners.

On a less technology-oriented note, there will be several outdoor-focused businesses attending the show, such as DVL Landscape and Bartlett Tree experts and Highland Farm. The latter will even have plants for sale.

Also at the show, there will be many different people to talk to for homeowners.

Kitchens Direct plans to bring samples of various products, including door and paint samples. Others will have samples of siding hardware and decking materials.

Whatever you are — builder, homeowner, interior decorator, gardener — there’s something for everyone at this year’s House and Garden Show, so come check out the digs.
