SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — The Home and Garden Expo of San Luis Obispo returned to the Alex Madonna Expo Center Saturday.
Attendees met with general contractors, landscapers, painters, home organizers and more.
Organizers of the event say even though many people research home projects on the internet, it is helpful to chat with a real person about what exactly you're looking for.
Johnny Soyak of Smart Home Exteriors says a large chunk of his business comes from people he has met through the expo.
"I would say 25 to 30 percent of our business all up north. It's a major show. We're always at the same spot. We're very well known. I have some of my customers from before stop by to say hello," Soyak explained.
The expo continues Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Parking is free to all attendees.
