NC Thrift Store Sells off Haunted Furniture That Owner Said Caused ‘Continuous Nightmares’
A North Carolina thrift store recently sold a haunted bedroom suite that the previous owners detailed he and his wife had constant nightmares for the time it was in their room.
The ReStore, run by Habitat for Humanity of Rowan County, has earned $1,000 off the bedroom suite that was hand-carved in the 1950s.
“They are regular customers and they said they were intrigued by it, but they don’t believe in that (haunted furniture).”
The thrift store took to Facebook on March 13 to post a warning sign about the furniture, saying:
“Please note: Previous owner reports that the highboy is haunted. He reports continuous nightmares for he and his wife while it was in their room.”
The sign added that the owner also said their dog would not stop barking at the bedroom set.
SOCIAL MEDIA RESPONSES
Reactions to the unique sales offering on Facebook varied from diversion to individuals who took it sincerely.
One user wrote: "I showed my 3 dogs they keep growling at this pic."
"Is there a better gift to buy an ex?" added another.
"Nothing haunted about it. I had a girl kill herself in my living room. She claimed to be a witch and often chanted around a fire and sacrificed animals. I sleep like a baby in my house. Jesus is my savior, let the demons deal with HIM," another user commented.
Despite the warning, Elizabeth Brady, the store's director of operations, said that two men came in shortly and purchased the two household items and paid the full asking price of $1,000.
“They are regular customers and they said they were intrigued by it, but they don’t believe in that (haunted furniture),” she said, adding that she didn't know their names.
Brady also said that the notice wasn't a publicity stunt. Rather, it involved total honesty, regardless of whether it hurt the chance of a fast deal.
“We are a Christian housing ministry, so we didn’t want to not disclose that,” she explained.
The ReStore is located at 1707 S. Main Street in Salisbury, North Carolina.
