Is This Deer Coffee Table For Sale In New York Real?
When you use Facebook Marketplace, you can find some really good deals. Can you find some bizarre items? In Utica, someone is selling this deer coffee table. Is it real?
According to the posting, yes, it's real:
I'm selling a Fawn Coffee Table for $650.00. Originally priced at $1600.00. The fawn was killed by a car and I brought it back to life. Serious inquiries only please"
So, the table has a real dead stuffed deer inside. Many would raise an eyebrow to that, but the seller has posted their argument why it's beautiful, and not creepy:
If you can't look at it because it's so beautiful, yet not moving around, think if it as a stuffed animal and keep the negative comments to yourself. If you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all."
The seller reminds Central New Yorkers to love the wildlife around us:
It is not cheap to have a small, life-size animal, mounted by any taxidermist, and I used one of the best taxidermist here in NY, and around our country"
If you're interested, the posting is on Facebook for $650.

There Is A Hot Market For Taxidermy Furniture
According to 417 Home, Taxidermy is trendy, and not just popular with hunters. It’s being incorporated more into mainstream designs, lake homes, large estates or man caves.
The trend is to go big or go home. “We have sold a huge Texas longhorn, rhinoceros, cow skulls, whale bones—all of these things are made out of resin,” Taylor says. “It is interesting because, if you use it in moderation, then they have a sense of importance.”"
Most people hang taxidermy in a grand entrance, or over a fireplace in a family room or living room setting. Would you make it into furniture for your home?
