'Twas the night before spring and the Berkshire Home Show was ready

LANESBOROUGH -- It is almost spring, and according to vendors and organizers at the annual Berkshire Home Show, thoughts of home improvement projects have begun to dance in homeowners' heads.
"When the weather starts to break, a lot of people start to get motivated to get involved in new home [improvement] projects," said Darci Hess, director of Marketing and Communications for the Berkshire County Chamber of Commerce.
"It's why we have this event at this time every year. We're very grateful the weather was good, because more people will stop by."
The event opened on Saturday at the Berkshire Mall in Lanesborough.
"Yeah, I'd say so," said Ken Perose of Pittsfield, agreeing with Hess' comment. He and his wife Marie were at the show, taking in various flooring and plumbing companies.
"We're relatively new homeowners, and with the longer days and hopefully warmer weather, we've started thinking about a couple projects at the house," he said.
The Home Show features a total of 47 vendors of virtually every home-improvement business one could imagine, according to Danielle Thomas, coordinator of Events and Programs for the Chamber.
"The Chamber is about building the business community, and an event like this helps vendors and the community," she said.
The Home Show is at the Berkshire Mall because it has enough space to accommodate the vendors' booths, and because it is a central point in the county, she said.
"It's helpful," said David Bova, one of the designers at the Gallivan Corp. of Williamstown, an exterior design and landscaping business. "It's about exposure, it's about the recognition factor. You have to get your name out there."
"You'll see a different sort of crowd here today," said Jim Witherall, manager of Berkshire Bathworks in Cheshire. "Most of the people you'll see today come for the Home Show. There are obviously people here at the mall to shop, also, but it's a Home Show crowd mostly."
The crowd is here because the Home Show represents "one-stop shopping" for many. But according to Real Gadoury, owner of Aerus of Pittsfield, many, if not all of the vendors offer some kind of deal or discount.
Aerus, by the way, is a company that sells air and water filters and vacuum cleaners.
"It's a great advertisement for us," he said. "But it's good for the people coming here, too. There are always special deals at the Home Show, and people can take advantage of those. You can save a lot of money coming here."
