The third annual Treat Your Self Women’s Expo will bring a number of women-focused vendors to the Marysville Opera House on Feb. 22.
“We’ve had a lot of interest in our vendor events,” said Joanna Martin, manager of the Ken Baxter Community Center and one of the organizers of the women’s expo.
“This one is unique, though, because it’s designed to be a girlfriend’s day out,” she said.
The Treat Your Self Women’s Expo is held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Marysville Opera House at 1225 Third St., Marysville.
The event is free for attendees.
“This event is a mix of vendors, and we target those that pamper, indulge or heal women,” said Martin.
Local businesses and services come out to the event to talk about their products and items.
Martin said 50 vendors are expected for the women's expo.
“We have lots of lotions, scrubs and soaps available,” said Martin.
The vendors include a wide variety of products and services such as different gyms in the area, spa services, jewelry and accessories, home decor, bath and body products, candles, glassware and food.
Some of those businesses are direct sale vendors while others are handmade or hobby sellers.
Free prizes will also be given as part of the event.
“The first 100 people through the door will get a swag bag,” said Martin. “There will also be raffles given away throughout the event."
Those raffles are scheduled for 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m.
“All of the items in the swag bag and the raffles are free,” said Martin. Those prizes include samples and coupons for some of the items available at the expo.
“Vendors and other local businesses are supplying the items in the bag,” said Martin.
This is the third year fro the event which Martin said has brought a lot of women to the Marysville Opera House.
“We had a lot of people come through the door last year,” she said.
The vendors also said they saw a lot of business for the day, said Martin.
People enjoy the event because it allows them a day to get out and spend time with other community members.
“The attendees said they had a lot of fun coming with their friends and spending the day looking at all the vendors,” said Martin.
