SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
The Siouxland Home Show is underway at the Sioux Convention Center. Vendors bring their new products to pitch to customers, some that could come in handy this spring.
There are over 160 vendors at this year's Sioux City Home Show. Twenty-seven of those are new, which means a lot of new products to check out.
One is the XHose. It's an 18 foot nylon and latex hose. Very easy to lug around and then when you hook it up to water, it fills up to a 50 foot hose, just the same size as a regular hose. And the best part is, it doesn't kink. How much does it cost?
"The 50 foot you have there is $45. So it's $15 cheaper than the TV price and you can take it home today," said Jason Richardson. "If this is too short, just keep linking the 50 feet together. And it's versatile to have 100 foot separating 50's than it is to have one long hose."
It's just one of the many products you can find at the Siouxland Home Show at the Sioux City Convention Center. The Home Show runs all weekend. It's open until nine Friday night. Then 11 a.m. until nine on Saturday, and then noon to five on Sunday.
Don't forget to stop at the KTIV booth and register to win a tablet. The winner will be announced on Monday.
