The 67th annual Seattle Home Show runs for nine days Saturday through Feb. 27 at Qwest Field Event Center. Organizers bill the gathering as the oldest and largest home show in the country.
Nearly 600 exhibitors will present the latest products and services in home remodeling, construction, landscaping and decor. New this year is an appearance by talk show host and syndicated columnist Dr. Lori and her Antique Appraisals Comedy Tour. Lori, a certified antiques appraiser, will provide free appraisals of collectibles and flea-market finds that visitors bring for her assessment.
Elsewhere at the show, visitors can pick up tips at more than 50 home-improvement workshops.
