Hundreds Line Up To Own Piece Of Trump Taj Mahal

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBS) —  The former Trump Taj Mahal may be no more, but for those of you who want a piece of the so-called Eighth Wonder of the World, it’s up for sale for the next several weeks

Staffers from Ohio-based National Content Liquidators are on hand to sell everything in more than 1,200 guest rooms.

People hoping for something from the casino, however, will be disappointed. Donald Hayes, who’s in charge of this sale, says forget about it.

“Gaming tables are not for sale. No roulette. No craps. No blackjack tables are for sale. Nothing in the casino,” Hayes told KYW Newsradio. “None of the kitchen equipment is for sale. No china, glassware or linens.”

But that hasn’t stopped hundreds of people from waiting in line for hours just to get in the door. If you want in, relax. They’ve got two months to clear it out before the Hard Rock starts conversion work.

You can pick up on everything from televisions to bedding to lamps.

One popular lamp was in the shape of a camel. It went for $25 a pop. Bob Maahs of South Philadelphia just couldn’t resist.

“I used to stay in the rooms and I remember those lamps and I wanted to bring one home,” he said.

He didn’t settle for one, though, as he bought six. Maahs’ wife didn’t come down here, and she’s not home right now. His game plan is to get them in the house, and slowly show them to her when she returns. He’s also hoping to avoid a lot of grief.

If you’re planning to come down here for the sale, a couple pieces of advice.

And stay off the boardwalk. You can’t get in that way. The only entrance is at the end of Virginia Avenue.
