It was supposed to be a relatively routine rehab for James Roletter and company when they bought the house at 2661 Martha Street in April. That's until they found an enormous relic of Philadelphia's illustrious garment industry past in the form of a ghost sign for the old Schellenberg's clothing store long covered by plaster and drywall. Now complete, the 2 bed, 1.5 bath house is asking $169K. Not only will that get you beautiful refinished original pine floors, a large kitchen with granite counter tops and all new HVAC systems, the completely renovated house comes with one helluva story by showcasing that incredible sign in multiple rooms.
