Around here that general style seems to be a dime a dozen just now, so my guess is that you'll have trouble getting your price. The central wood detail in yours is unusual but many of them have some cool woodwork detail or another. An alarming number of them are pink so you might have an advantage in that regard :-)

To me these always look a little too rickety for me to have any real confidence in their ability to hold all the weight they can seat!

Someone just started a thread explaining how to post photos.
