*A quick note about beds. Bed frames, headboards, and footboards are not as easy to come by in the stores we are suggesting, mainly because these items are very clunky and take up a lot of space. We suggest, if you are looking for a bed, to visit a North Carolina-based furniture store. A great place to shop for beds is the Hickory Furniture Mart. In fact, on the website, they provide a list of manufacturers. You can easily find a North Carolina or American-made product.
