After my Dad died, my sister and I had much of the furniture auctioned as we were not settled enough ourselves at the time to keep so much stuff. I see similar pieces at a used furniture store near my office once in awhile for various prices depending on condition. Unfortunately, nice dressers such as you describe only fetch maybe a hundred to a hundred and fifty apiece if in excellent condition. I don't know about the double bed. I have a three bedroom house and have a queen in my room, a double in one guest room and a twin in the smallest room.
That's kinda what I was thinking. I think--if I were looking at this to buy--I'd give $150 for the whole lot if I had a full mattress, so that's for the bed frame, high boy and chest of drawers. To me, that would be a good deal and I'd be happy with it.
I think I'll hit some junk stores today here and take a gander just for fun.
Seems to me you could buy these chests cheap, paint on them some and quadruple the price if you did some really creative things with them...hmmmmm...good idea for the future. But I'm always getting these creative urges..haha!
