Even if the economy has you rethinking how much you’re going to invest in home improvement this year, it’s still fun to wander the AH&L Expo to see all the neat stuff you can get to spiff up your house. At past events, I’ve seen hand-hammered copper sinks, hand-carved entry doors and cool new home technology products.
This spring’s expo runs February 21 & 22 (Saturday and Sunday) at Expo New Mexico (formerly the State Fairgrounds). Besides wandering through the exhibits, you can attend a free, entertaining presentation by Joey Green, “America’s Mad Scientist of Home Improvement.” He can teach you how to fix a broken dishwasher with Kool-Aid, clean driveway oil spills with Coca-Cola and unclog a drain with Jell-O — among many other wacky things! Just RSVP online in advance.
Here are two deals to get you into the expo cheap:
- New Mexico Marketplace currently has a banner running at the top of their homepage with a “buy one get one free” coupon for admission. Print out the coupon and present it at the gate. (As with all deals, I have no idea how long this banner will be live.)
- Or, get $1 off admission by purchasing online.
Regular price admission for adults is $8 and for seniors age 65+/children age 8+ is $7.
WHEN: Saturday, February 21, 10:00am – 6:00pm; and Sunday, February 22, 10:00am – 5:00pm
WHERE: Expo New Mexico (formerly the State Fairgrounds)
