Flea Market Find - Full Size Antique Bed

Feast your eyes upon another treasure I spotted while I was at the Flea Market today-

Stunning, isn't it?
Can you guess the price?

(Or more importantly, can you guess how BADLY I wanted to straighten up this booth!?)


Updated, January 26th: The bed is priced at $199.99!

If it is over $800, I say don't get it.

Wow...that bed looks very similiar to one I just got at the thrift store for $30 bucks! Mine needs the finials... and it was missing the bedrails. I got a set of bedrails that were laying around the thrift store, but they weren't for a queen bed (5 inches too short) so now I am on the hunt for cheap bedrails. I mean I can't spend over $30 on the bedrails when the bed was $30. (-;

I actually had considered sending you a pic of the bed so I could get your advice on what color to paint my bedroom, and what color to paint the bed...so funny you should post that video! Obviously without bedrails I am not ready to tackle the project, but you might hear from me about it in the future when I get my act together!

Great bed will look wonderful with the direction you’re going with your decor.

That's the bed I grew up with! Only mine's mahogany. Mine's an antique and was made in North Carolina in the 1800s.

Ooohhh! I love it! Did you already get it? Hopefully you got a screaming deal! I'll guess $75.

Get the bed, get the bed, get the bed! I can't guess prices. It has been brought to my attention by many that I suck at that game. :) There goes my career on The Price is Right. How much? Did you buy it? Did the booth get straightened? :)

That same bed is in our spare room!! My aunt left it to me years ago. I slept in it has a child when I went to her house for visits. My granddaughter will get the bed after I am done with it!
Neat!

Hi Donna!

I think the cleanliness of the booth offers a hint at the price point. :-)

I feel your pain about wanting to spruce up the area!! I have to bite my lip to keep from saying "You know this would be so much prettier over here, or why don't you sit this here!" I have however been known to move something around when noone is manning the area LOL
Beautiful bed!
