CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — An antique warehouse in Iowa is offering a $2,500 price tag for a cabinet it hopes will hold its own against its older cousins.
The Vintage Home Barn is offering the $3,000 Upright Bass cabinet in three configurations: “Classic” with six-string bass; “Bass Bass” with four-string treble; and “Standard Bass” which features two-string guitar and bass.
The cabinet comes with a “sturdy, built-in stand,” along with a leather-handled cabinet tray.
It will be priced at $3.2 million, a lot higher than the current bid, and will ship to a California home.
The original bid of $2.5 million is still outstanding, according to Vintage Home’s website.
The two-hand operation is the company’s answer to a market that has been saturated with “high-end” cabinets and cabinet designs, said Joe M. Brown, a retired real estate agent and co-founder of Vintage Home.
The company’s goal is to create a collection of cabinets that will last for decades and that are priced at around $5 million, he said.
“We’re looking at something that you can put in a cabinet cabinet, like a wood cabinet, and it will last 10, 15, 20 years, and you’ll be able to get it for a lower price,” Brown said.
“I think it’s going to be the most iconic cabinet in the history of furniture,” Brown added.
