President Barack Obama’s inaugural team is opening an online and brick-and-mortar store to sell souvenirs…
The Presidential Inaugural Committee launched the online store Thursday. A retail store a few blocks from the White House was scheduled to open Jan. 11. The goods, ranging from $2.50 rulers to $30 champagne flutes to a $7,500 medallion set, also will be sold at some Washington hotels around the Jan. 21 inauguration.
… Proceeds go toward fundraising efforts for the parade, balls and other inaugural celebrations.
