Do-it-yourself remodeling can result in family rooms turning into walk-in closets and walk-in closets turning into regular closets. Unless you want closets, leave it to the pros with today’s Groupon to the Fall 2011 Maryland Home & Garden Show at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium. The show takes place at the following times:
- Friday, October 14 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Saturday, October 15 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
- Sunday, October 16 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Choose between the following options: * For $9, you get two one-day admission tickets (up to an $18 value). * For $16, you get four one-day admission tickets (up to a $36 value).
Throngs of home improvement specialists, landscapers, crafters, and other vendors flock to the Maryland Home & Garden Show at the Maryland State Fairgrounds to set up more than 300 exhibits. Domicile artists dispense advice and information on remodeling, gutter repair, and energy savings, and crafters adorn homes with holiday décor and people with handmade jewelry. Faux evergreen-bush covers disguise utility boxes much like a man-made lake disguises an open field, and Stone Scapes revamp lackluster patios. Visitors break from perusing travel booths and massage therapists to have heads stuffed with knowledge by expert seminar speakers, who lead discussions on topics such as faux finishing and holiday home makeovers and host an amateur holiday cook-off and a telepathic yodeling competition on the IKEA kitchen stage.
Though the Maryland Home & Garden Show features a discounted price online, this Groupon still presents the best deal available for most individuals. The show offers free admission for children under 6 and active military, police, and fire employees with ID; tickets for children 6–12 are $3.
