The 36th Annual Builders Home & Remodeling Show returns to St. Charles Convention Center September 23-25. The Show, produced by the Home Builders Association, gives area residents the opportunity to see 200 companies in 300 booths on both levels of the Convention Center. Show visitors can find what they need for their homes, inside and out, including kitchen and bath designs and fixtures, flooring, window treatments, decks, fencing, windows, siding, doors and so much more. And the Show has free admission and free parking. Visiting the Show will save attendees time and money, help them complete their home improvement projects and give them the opportunity to have a fun day out with their families.

Dr. Lori is back with her Antiques Appraisal Comedy Show, featuring free appraisals. Dr. Lori stars as the antiques appraiser on the Discovery channel's hit reality TV show Auction Kings and appears on the FOX Business Network's Strange Inheritance. She has been featured on NBC's The Tonight Show and Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart for her no holds barred approach and comedic talent. Dr. Lori is a certified art and antiques appraiser, art historian and former museum curator. She presents more than 150 antiques appraisal shows and appraises 20,000 objects every year. Dr. Lori will pull no punches as she evaluates attendees’ stuff and makes them laugh. "I'll break some hearts and make some millionaires," says Dr. Lori. As she entertains and appraises items, Dr. Lori will provide tips on how to sell unwanted stuff for top dollar and how to negotiate to find bargains. She will also share the secrets of auctions and reveal why people should NOT host a yard sale.

Show visitors have the opportunity to bring an antique to be appraised for free as part of Dr. Lori’s wildly funny, one-of-a-kind, entertaining event. One per person on a first-come, first-served basis, as time permits. Many people come just to watch the shows to see what antiques everyone brings and find out what they’re worth. Dr. Lori never knows what kind of old stuff her audiences will bring her next and she leaves them howling for more. Every show is different, totally unscripted and there is no standing in line. St. Louisans won’t want to miss the chance to see if that item in their attic is trash or treasure.
