Ready for the National Hardware Show

gladiator garage Ready for the National Hardware Show
Next week we’ll be attending the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas and we’re looking forward to sharing our favorite finds in tools, materials and of course hardware.
There are a few highlights from the show that we’re looking forward to checking out.
Tailgate Display and Party
The National Hardware Show has devoted an entire area to this new product category which has emerged as a major trend. Located in its own environment, outside of the entrance to Central Hall in the parking lot, products will be displayed during Show hours. This launch will be celebrated with a Tailgating Party open to all and featuring beer, snacks and live entertainment.
Organize.com’s Twitter Party
Not sure if this is a Tweetup or maybe just a screen showing the #NHS2010 conversation. Should be interesting ~ more curious as to how the audience reacts.
Party Hosts: @ORGANIZEdotcom, @MrsOrganized, @organizesteve0
Hashtag: #organizeNHS
25th Annual Golden Hammer Awards
Home Channel News presents the 26th Annual Golden Hammer Awards, recognizing elite suppliers who exemplify the gold standard by demonstrating their commitment to the support of retailer sales, marketing and partnership efforts.


The speaker lineup doesn’t look to compelling but I’m sure they’re much more fun and informative in person.
There will be more than 900 tools, 300 housewares, 900 lawn and garden, 250 paint and 250 plumbing and electrical vendors on display.
Football sidenote:
The Hardware Show has matched the appearance of Heisman trophy winner George Rogers at the Builders Show with their own Heisman winning runningback, Tony Dorsett, who will be at the EZ Grill booth.

    Who was the idiot that posted this? It is illegal to remove or even tamper with lead based paint without a lead abatement license. It can be more harmful to your health and those around you than the cost of having a professional contractor remove it for you. Even more important, do not remove the lead based paint from the surface if it is still adhering soundly to the surface. Use an encapsulating primer and a good quality finish paint and the problem is gone.
    People should talk to a professional paint store with “Real” knowledge and experience on how to handle any type of painting project. Avoid the Big Box stores and be careful of the pimple poppin student at Sherwin Williams!!!
