WENATCHEE — Everyone was a winner Monday when they showed up at the Wenatchee Convention Center for an offer of free furniture that once filled two Las Vegas casino hotels.
“There was a line of 40 people here when we opened the doors at 10 a.m. It really got busy by 11,” said Gerald Anglin, who was helping people pick out and load dressers, end tables, couches and chairs that had earlier filled the convention center’s spacious Orchard Exhibit Hall. Most of the bigger and best quality items like love seats, hutches, dressers, end tables and newer televisions were gone by noon. “The furniture was of a lot higher quality than I expected.”
