Kamloops, B.C. 9th Annual House and Home Show a Great Success

March 30, 2015   

About twelve hundred consumers filled the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre last Saturday at the 9th Annual House and Home Show.  This event, hosted by CHBA CI and sponsored by Home Hardware, focused on home building and renovating, energy efficiency and “green initiatives”. Sixty exhibitors enjoyed showcasing their products from 9:30am-4:00pm.

The “Ugly Stove Contest” was a very successful component of the show. People sent in a photo of their working stove to enter the contest. We received 38  entries. We then picked the top 10 Ugliest Stove pictures and had them at the home show. People who attended the home show voted for the Ugliest Stove. The picture with the most votes was the winner.

The winner of the Brand New Frigidaire Stove sponsored by City Furniture Kamloops and Frigidaire, was Maria Schaaf from Kamloops.  I was not able to go to the show because I got engaged on Saturday, March 21st. This is a great surprise, my stove works, but it sure ain’t the safest or most efficient” says Maria.

Nathaniel Martin won an iPad mini sponsored by K&C’s Construction and Renovation Ltd. and Laurie Ternier won a Sonos wireless speaker sponsored by SA Electric.
