Liedtke benefit garage sale to offer historical lamp raffle
In addition to loads of items that will be available to purchase at the Liedtke garage sale this weekend, a chandelier with a link to the history of Forks will be raffled as well. The lamp, circa 1925, once hung in the Groffmans' residence above their store that was located next to the Odd Fellows Hall.
The Groffmans' original store was lost in the January 1925 fire that destroyed most of the downtown area. According to the Groffmans' grandson Bernard Judson, who now lives in Hawaii, there actually had been two lights that matched, one hung in the dining room and one in the "music" room. Judson thinks the light may have been purchased in Port Townsend or Seattle when all other fixtures were purchased when the store was rebuilt.
Also being offered as a raffle item will be a brand new Mariners jacket.
