Thanks for the inquiry! This type of mid-20th century maple bedroom set is too recent to be considered an antique, so the market is for people who are looking to use this as furniture. The 1950s date seems appropriate based on the style and a set like yours with two nightstands/headboard/dresser and mirror and a full/queen bed would usually sell through a peer-to-peer marketplace like Craigslist or a classified ad for $400 to $600 (these sets are so durable and the styling is still traditional).
