PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — In response to the overwhelming popularity of the keepsake Civic Arena ornaments during the holiday season, Wendell August Forge says they are expanding their commemorative collection made from the steel from the roof of the iconic structure.

Officials with the company say they purchased additional steel from the arena roof and have added a number of items to the collection.

In a press release, Will Knecht, the president of Wendell August, said: “We had fans lined up outside our store hours before opening and sold out of the ornaments in just days. Customers have been asking for additional merchandise to be created from the roof, and in response to that demand, we were able to secure additional steel from the Civic Arena roof, which enabled us to expand on the collection.”

The new merchandise includes items like coaster sets, bookmarks, mugs, wine toppers and paperweights.
