MEDINA – Julie Fenton, center, is again hosting her Between the Vines Home Show. She has organized the event for 17 years, including the past 10 years on Porter Road.

She is pictured with helpers, her son Lawson Fenton and Ally Uberty, in the new cash-out center added this year. There are more than 40 vendors at this year’s show and each one also arranges to work a day at the show.

Julie Fenton’s garage on Porter Road is transformed each year for the Between the Vines Home Show. The event continues today from noon to 4 p.m. Fenton also added Monday to the schedule from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Due to the snowstorm keeping some of her regular out-of-area customers away (some from as far away as Pennsylvania), Fenton said she is staying open the additional day.

Holiday decor items are for sale at Between the Vines.

Abigail Wilkinson, front, is pictured with her mom Jennifer Wilkinson (who is also a vendor) in back from Attica. They are joined by Laura Witkowski and baby Ryan of Batavia and Kimberly Fasano of Elba.

Lots of holiday decor is available at the show.

When these ladies came through the door of the cash-out area, they said, “It’s like coming off a ride at Disney” because there were many more items for sale to look through. “It just goes on and on,” they laughed. Pictured are Stacey Pollack, left, and Kim Miller from Newfane.

You can even purchase reindeer antlers (handmade , of course!).

After December 25, we hope!

Between the Vines is also supporting “Boxes for Troops.” Donations of personal items or cash towards shipping the boxes are being accepted at the home show. All donations are entered into a drawing for a light up wooden reindeer. Names and addresses of soldiers are requested. Please message Julie on her Facebook page (click here).
