PHOTOS: The Heirloom Registry spends a Saturday outside an Antiques Roadshow event

The Seattle Times estimated that 6,000 people attended the Antiques Roadshow event on Saturday in Seattle. During the day, representatives of the Heirloom Registry spoke with several hundred of them about their family heirlooms and family keepsakes— and the stories behind them — as the lucky ticketholders to the event made their way to and from the Washington State Convention Center.

Heirloom Registry friends and family members drove about two hours south from company headquarters in Ferndale, Wash., to help pass out free registry stickers and let attendees know a little about how The Heirloom Registry works.

Below are a few photos of their visit. To read the entire story, see The Heirloom Registry’s latest press release.
