This Weekend Is Your Chance to Buy John F. Kennedy's Bed

After the Kennedy family's former Palm Beach home, known as the Winter White House during JFK's presidency, sold last year for $31 million, it was announced that almost 300 lots of original furniture would go up for auction in early 2016. Now it is early 2016, and the Kennedy furniture is hitting the auction block this weekend. If you've been marking the days on the calendar, waiting to spring at your chance to purchase a bed on which John F. Kennedy slept both as a child and an adult, make haste to Palm Beach. The collection also includes the dining table and chairs where Kennedy and his cabinet figured out how to handle the Cuban Missile Crisis, which could come in handy if you've got any big decisions coming up.
