Are you considering getting rid of some old furniture? Well, if you’re Dolly Parton then the best course of action with something like that is to put up for auction. That’s exactly what Dolly is doing with all the pieces in her bedroom suite from her Dollywood apartment. It’s all going up with eBay to benefit the Doctor Robert F. Thompson foundation.
“I first offered up my bed and lots of folks kept asking ‘Got anything else?’,” Parton said in a news release. “Since it’s for such a good cause, the Dr. Thomas Foundation, that’s so near and dear to my heart, I started digging through and thought, “Why not just the whole bedroom suite?”
For this auction you can bid on Dolly’s King-sized white painted cast iron bed, each piece features six brass vertical insets, her mattress & box spring, two autographed pillowcases in a king-sized set of white, lace-trimmed sheets, custom-made light pink bedspread, matching wooden side table, two cast iron bedside tables, two lamps and a bonus surprise framed wall hanging. This was actually the bedroom Dolly slept in since Dollywood opened in 1986. It was part of her personal apartment that was upstairs at the Apple Jack’s restaurant. Now that apartment space has been converted into an office for Dolly so it only makes sense for her to auction off the bedroom furniture.
Of course, if we were faced the situation we might not garner the same level of attention for getting rid of our used furniture. If eBay’s not going to take it then you might as well consider hiring a professional group of junk haulers like Junk King Chattanooga to show up at the appointed hour and take away all your furniture. You might not like to think of your furniture as junk but the moment you made the decision to get rid of it that’s exactly what it has become. Sure, there might be some items that you could pass among your family that still have some life in them. But for those pieces that are just plain worn out or busted up the best solution is a trip to the junk heap.
The other benefit of hiring a group of professional haulers is that they are going to be licensed and insured. This means you’re getting quality workers coming into your home to move around these large pieces. This is where experience counts because the last thing you want is to have your floors or walls messed up because the movers didn’t know what they were doing. It’s also benefit to get rid of this furniture the right way as opposed to setting it out on the curb and hope someone might come by and pick it up. Usually that just ends up being an eyesore for the rest the neighborhood and could also lead to a fine for illegal dumping. Once that old furniture is gone you’ve got the room for some new pieces and redecoration.
