Just in time for the holidays, the Cumberland County women’s expo will be held on Nov. 12 at the Carlisle Expo Center from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Plan to spend the day with friends, family, or coworkers and check out products and services offered by people who live in your own backyard.


So many of our purchases are done online anymore that we’ve lost the adventure of shopping – the fun of seeing, feeling, touching, and smelling products. They don’t call it retail therapy for nothing! The women’s expo gives you the opportunity to do all of this in a relaxed atmosphere. And if you’re like me, you’re asking yourself where the year went because the holidays are just around the corner. This will be the perfect opportunity to pick up some “not the usual” gifts.


You’ll also find timely information about home décor, travel destinations, trendy jewelry, home improvement ideas, health and wellness, nutrition, skin care, entertainment, and so much more.

You may know someone who has had a wedding gown designed by the local fashion artist Sheila Frank. Although Sheila creates beautiful bridal wear, she also designs day-to-night dresses; special-occasion wear for Holy Communion, prom, mother of the bride, bridesmaids, and galas; and even some costumes! Prepare to be amazed as her designs take center stage for this year’s fashion show.


Don’t forget to stop by Tranquility Spa’s booth for makeup touch-ups and hand massages. Sounds relaxing!

Rubi Nicholas, Nick@Nite’s “Funniest Mom in America” winner and stand-up comedian, will be joining us. She’s one funny lady! You’ll laugh until your sides hurt.


Does anyone not know that Carlisle Bakery has some of the best baked goods in the county? Your mouth will water as Eric Bell, owner of Carlisle Bakery, shares his cake-decorating techniques. Eric makes it look so easy and yet it takes years of practice and a lot of patience. And it’s not just the design that has to look great; the cake itself has to be tasty too!

Stauffers of Kissel Hill will show us how to create a great-looking container garden for the holidays. They make it look easy by telling us what to use and where to place the embellishments. Perhaps this year your unique container garden will enhance your entryway or tabletop.


Don’t gain 5 pounds this holiday! A GIANT nutritionist will be joining us and providing tips on how to survive the holidays without gaining weight.

Want to do a little wine sipping? Castlerigg Wine Shop from Carlisle and Olivero’s Vineyard from McAlisterville will be offering wine tastings to guests over 21. Stop by and have a sample. You may end up purchasing a bottle to take to a holiday party!

Don’t pass up the opportunity for free spa treatments and health screenings. This is a day to think about yourself and find ways to relax.

Log on at for free advance guest registration ($5 at the door) or for more information about participating as a sponsor or exhibitor.
