BANGOR - Maine Jewelry & Art is attracting a lot of new customers these days who are looking to get their hands on a piece of one of their favorite childhood destinations. Last month, the owners of the Harlow Street jewelry store began making earrings, bracelets and bookmarks from the 102-year-old copper roof that's being replaced on the Bangor Public Library. Those pieces were then auctioned off to help the library with its renovations and requests for the unique items have been stacking up ever since.

"I knew there'd be a big response, but I didn't know it would be this big. They're selling like hotcakes," said Roxanne Munksgaard, jewelry designer and co-owner of Maine Jewelry & Art. "We got requests from as far away as Paris, France."
