The Resource Home Show trade show returns to The Woodland in Maplewood on Sunday, November 10th from 1 pm - 4 pm

The Resource Home Show trade show returns to connect regional homeowners and home design enthusiasts with an even more extensive and eclectic arsenal of home improvement professionals. Talented tradespeople and independent makers spanning a cross-section of fields, including interior design, architecture, restoration, home maintenance, sustainable landscaping and much more, will engage visitors through creative displays, educational presentations, and, new this year, pop-up shops for holiday shopping!  

From fancy to functional, from decorative to utilitarian, if it is for the home, it will likely be on display at the second annual Resource Home Show. Organized by local Realtors®, Carla Labianca and Lisa Danbrot, the Show is unlike any other in the region; it is an event that brings home resources together under one roof. Both women also manage Inhabit Your Home, a blog for the stylish and functional home.

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

“Online hubs like and community Facebook pages are wonderful to find photos, get recommendations, and share experiences, but we often thought what if we could give our community and clients a one-stop place to meet, to actually have a face-to-face conversation with some of these very talented professionals? And the Show was born!” says Carla Labianca.

"A home is both its material construct and the way we experience the space inside. The vision of the show is to represent both realms. So we try to cast a wide net with exhibitors - from experts in foundational, safety and energy systems, to specialists in niche skills, through creative aesthetic fields, and all points in between.” says Lisa Danbrot.
