Women’s Expo Benefits Local Non-Profits

Organizers said there are plenty of gun and tool shows for guys, but there's really not a show in the area for women, so they figured they'd put on one.

A one-stop shopping event was held Saturday at the Eastwood Expo center.

Boutiques, vendors and non-profits set up shop for the first-of-its-kind event in Niles.

Organizers said there are plenty of gun and tool shows for guys, but there’s really not a show in the area for women.

“Cleveland cancelled their shows, Columbus isn’t doing their show, New York doesn’t have a show up there so, we’re trying to be the center hub. And we do have some vendors who have traveled that far from New York, Columbus, Akron, Canton, Cleveland, we’re happy to have them here,” said organizer Justine Thomas.

Gift baskets were also raffled off, with the proceeds going to non-profits like Hospice and the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center.
