Women look over the room keys, going for $15 and $25 (which was more than the gorgeous art deco lamps)^
Roger Lenhart of Davidson, N.C., looks at a small chandelier. He was in town on business and heard about the sale on TV^
The sale of Patrick Henry Hotel fixtures, many of them lovely antiques, attracted a packed house at the new Goodwill facility in Roanoke today. Bargain hunters found furniture, fixtures, artwork and miscellaneous items and many delighted in their purchases--including your correspondent who holds a room key he bought for his wife (right, photographed by my bud Stephanie Koehler).
I told Christina I couldn't find the key she wanted, but it will mysteriously make its way into her Christmas stocking as a surprise. Heh, heh, heh ...
This sale was just a taste of what's to come. Many, many more items will be on sale in January. The hotel has more than 100 rooms and is being renovated by developer Ed Walker.
