Enron office furniture in Colorado showroom

Scandal sells. Office Liquidators of Lakewood took delivery of three giant truckloads of used executive furniture from the former Enron headquarters in Houston last week and more than a quarter of it was gone by Monday.

"Our Saturday was the busiest we've had in six months," said Bob Tynecki, Chief Financial Officer of Office Liquidator. "We had a story in the Denver Post and live TV coverage along with the postcards we mailed to customers ... and the response was just overwhelming."

The $178 executive chairs were the biggest sellers, but there are still some of those remaining along with desks, wall units, book cases and credenza sets, some with asset tax tags still attached. Office Liquidator president Dennis Meyer, a 20 year veteran of the business, did two walking tours of the Houston headquarters and "cherry picked the ones in best condition," Tynecki said. Just don't expect to find anything from Ken Lay's executive suite. "As I understand it," Tynecki said, "that's going to be auctioned off later this year on eBay."
