I have an old 4 post bed but not sure if there is any value to it or if it should just be donated to a thrift store.. it appears old..

Hi Jan,

Old beds are a hard sell these days since everyone is looking for queen and king size beds
that are very stylish.

Single and double beds are not in demand and I see them selling in the $50 to  $75. range.

Perhaps making a donation would be your best bet and if you itemize on your annual taxes
you can claim it for a higher amount.

Best Wishes,

I am able to answer most questions pertaining to the authenticity,collectability and values of high-end reproduction furniture. As an example, quality furniture produced by leading manufacturers such as Baker, Kittinger, Kindel, Saybolt-Cleland furniture companies. I must have at least one photo for advice.
