NFMS Family Living Center has something for everyone
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — For National Farm Machinery Show (NFMS) attendees who haven’t quite budgeted for a tractor or a combine, the Family Living Center provides the chance to take home items a little easier on the wallet.

NFMS visitors don’t have to leave the Kentucky Exposition Center to do more typical shopping, and can instead stroll through more than 30 booths at the Family Living Center, located in the East Hall of the facility.

From accessories for the home to accessories for you, the Family Living Center has something for a variety of tastes. Among the exhibits, shoppers will find monogrammed sweatshirts at Designs By J.T., and western wear, buckles and wallets at The Cowboy Shop. Other products include plush farm animals from Granny’s Attic, as well as handcrafted gifts and tractor collectibles at Kate’s Korner Kupboard.

There are also some items in the Family Living Center that attendees might not expect to see. Add some fragrant aromas to your home by visiting Country Scenes Everlasting Candles, or appear as if you live at the beach with a stop by Safeway Tanning.

Medi Rub Enterprises, which sells medical massagers used in rehabilitation facilities, will make a good destination when your feet start aching from walking the show floor.

The Family Living Center is set aside from the main NFMS exhibit area so that visitors can casually shop for special gifts and souvenirs for friends, farm toys and collectibles for the kids, and unique accessories and gadgets for around the house. It’s open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Feb. 15-18, as part of the NFMS.
