Numerous vendors with products for women will be at the Marysville Opera House for the second annual Treat Your Self Women's Expo on Feb. 23.

The event will be held at the opera house at 1225 3rd St., Marysville,º from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

"It's a little bit of a twist on the traditional vendor show," said Joanna Martin, manager of Marysville's Ken Baxter Community Center and one of the main organizers for the expo.

"Last year was the first year for this event and it was a really big success, so we knew we wanted to bring it back this year," said Martin.

Last year the show was fairly large with around 50 vendors.

This year will have a similar amount of vendors, said Martin, with a limit of four of the same type of vendor so that there's a mix of items available.

Those items include direct sale and handcrafted items, including bath and body items, lotions, soaps, jewelry, clothes and accessories.

"We'll have some local vendors that can provide information on women's health as well," said Martin.

Other services such as small gyms, masseuse/massages and mini-facials will have information for visitors as well.

A couple of food trucks will be at the expo, including one that specializes in coffee.

The first 100 people through the doors will receive a swag bag and door prizes will be given away starting at 11 a.m. and lasting until 2:30 p.m.

Last year, visitors liked that the expo had a number of different types of vendors.

"The idea was to create something enjoyable that friends could go to at the city.

"We wanted to do something that could be a getaway with you and your friends, just hanging out and having fun," said Martin.

The expo also helped small businesses get out into the community.

"This is just a good opportunity for us to showcase local businesses," said Martin.

The event's date was moved from last year.

"We moved it from October to February, to space out our events a little bit bitter," said Martin. "We had a couple of vendor events that were back to back, so we wanted to give them more space."
