Want to sell vintage bedroom set

Posted by msgreatdeals (My Page) on

I have a king size bedroom set we bought new when we got married in 1971. It's by Bassett I believe. It's walnut and rosewood. I have the king headboard, 2 night stands, triple dresser, dresser mirror, and highboy chest. I don't know what to ask for it and would Craigslist be a good place?
The set is in very good condition with usual signs of wear. We moved it 6-7 times since we bought it. I'm not using the headboard and now I won't be using the dresser mirror and rather than store it in the garage, I'm thinking it's time to part with it.Here is a picture of the dresser. It's darker in person.

Try ebay you will do better that a site that doesn't allow advertising.

Looks like a very desirable MCM piece -

I would try to consign it - since it is a sought after well made set. I have had luck with local consignment shop selling some less desirable pieces. They typically split 60% to you 40% to shop. If you have a few in your area you could send pics and ask about their interest.

Ebay is an option if you do it local only

Consignment sounds good. I didn't think of that.
Ebay is out of the question as it would have to be a pick up only. I sell on eBay and have been for 11 years! I also sell on 3-4 other sites but they are not good for really large items.
I think I'm just going to have to keep it until the economy improves! Thanks!
