Home Show

I haven't been to the home show in years!
It's big, but the product range is much narrower than in the shows I remember from years ago.

There are about 20 to 30 stands selling "investments". There are the usual stands selling all the products that are only ever sold at these shows: the mops, painting gadgets, vege peelers, drills and secateurs that for some reason aren't available in shops. And if you want to re-model your kitchen, there are half a dozen or more people to sell you new cupboards. But there is very little lighting, almost nothing for the garden (a bit of sculpture, and stupid floating crocodile heads), no furniture, and only one stand with floor coverings. Some of the things I was hoping to see weren't there, but I did get to check out the haiku fan, solar hot water, and the particular type of windows we need for our new house.
