RAVERSE CITY -- The 6th Annual ‘Up North’ Lake & Cottage show wrapped up in Traverse City on Sunday.
Hundreds filled the Grand Traverse County Civic Center to visit different exhibits, most of which were geared towards getting a fresh idea for the home.
“People come to the Lake and Cottage show because they might be looking to build a new home, or new cottage,” said Show Producer Andrew MacDonald. “They might be looking to put an addition onto their home or cottage, they might be looking for new furniture perhaps home services, or just to see what’s new on the market.”
It’s not just cottages either, according to the Home Improvement Research Institute the sale of total home improvement products went up 4 percent last year and they expect that number to grow.
