The home is like a Dungeness crab shell⎯it protects its delicate dweller from exterior harm but frequently molts after a four-day mating ceremony. Make your domestic paradise attractive to crabby callers with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one-day pass for up to four people to the Nova Scotia Ideal Home Show and a $5 voucher to Lumbermart (up to a $37 total value). The Ideal Home Show will take place at Exhibition Park April 1–3. The Lumbermart voucher is valid at locations in Halifax and Dartmouth.
The Nova Scotia Ideal Home Show enlightens homeowners with the latest home and renovation products and more. A jaunt through the Ideal Garden & Patio exhibit imparts an opportunity to meet with landscape contractors, designers, and garden professionals to discuss planting, patio development, and the construction of triumphal arches to commemorate Mario Kart victories. On the main floor, discover the odds and ends of architectural stonework, home appraisals, and eco-friendly insulation. A hospitality-and-tourism consultant for New Brunswick, bearing multitudes of cheese samples, will be on-hand each day to acquaint attendees with the best wine, beer, and cheese pairings, and will also address how to properly store cheeses. Door prizes and contests will instigate mass grinning over the three-day showcase, and botanical panels help green thumbs determine which common garden vegetables most effectively lure extraterrestrials.
Today's Groupon also includes a $5 voucher to Lumbermart, where power tools, lumber, and home-installation products trump pavilion-cut crystals six days a week.
