The new company will have a presence outside the Antiques Roadshow appraisal event at the Washington State Convention Center, giving away Heirloom Registry labels to interested attendees.
“When you know more of the information or story behind a family heirloom or a precious belonging, that background or provenance gives it life,” said Dan Hiestand, Heirloom Registry marketing director. “The Antiques Roadshow helps people to learn a little bit more about the things they care about, and we help them to securely preserve and share what they learn.”
Representatives of The Heirloom Registry – including company founder Mike Hiestand – will be on hand outside the event, speaking to attendees about the unique stories behind their objects, and giving away free Heirloom Registry labels.
