For sale: one bed of indeterminate value
August 21, 2013 8:33 PM Subscribe
When I moved into my apartment, the previous tenant left behind his kid's twin bed, which has been sitting in a corner covered with books for the last year. I want to finally get rid of it (on Craigslist or similar) but I have no idea what the asking price should be. Details inside.

After a bit of research, I was able to find that it's an Ikea "Brekke" bed, which is no longer for sale. It has a more solid frame than most of their offerings, three pull-out drawers underneath, and a mattress and box spring that I'd ideally sell along with it. I've checked Craigslist for similar sales of Ikea beds (and skimmed Ikea catalogs for current items that seem similar), but prices seem to fluctuate wildly; ditto for mattresses. I'm in between jobs and trying to save as much as I can, so I'd really like to maximize my return on this sale, but I have no real idea what it's worth. I'm open to any advice the hive mind may have.
