Usually when I go into Goodwill I really don’t find anything. My girls call me a Goodwill snob! It’s not that I have something against the store, I just don’t ever get a good chance to look around. So I usually don’t find anything. I do have to be honest, I have a hard time buying used sometimes when I can buy brand new at the same price or really close to it. Ok, maybe I’m a little bit of a shopping snob. (insert giggle here!)
Anyway back to the story! When I walked in the door I saw this incredible headboard. It was love at first sight! I have a passion for wrought iron and this just screamed, “Buy me!”
So, I bought it! For $35! I couldn’t believe it and I think it’s vintage. Vintage! Did they know what they were selling? I had to stand over it, guard it, while I awaited hubby’s approval. I wasn’t the only one who apparently wanted it and I was prepared to defend it if necessary. Thankfully, he said , “Yes!” Luckily for them, I didn’t have to bring out my shopping defense skills!
This will be going in Becca’s room. It will look beautiful against her dark blue walls; it was just the perfect find to help complete her bedroom. I can’t resist when I find something really unique and this is unique. I love how it curves. It’s so romantic.
I guess the moral to my story is, take the time to look around a thrift store. You might be surprised at what you find! Goodwill snob no more!

Hi, I would check with Cathouse Antique Iron Beds. They were great with information about the bed that we bought. Here’s the link to their website http://www.cathousebeds.com/ They also have a Facebook page and they got back with us pretty quickly. I hope that helps. Have a very Merry Christmas!
