Hello! And thanks for stopping by the Jubilee Furniture blog where every Friday I give you a preview of some of the wonderful items we’ve received for donation that week! My thoughts when I started the blog (read my very first, incredibly lame post here) were by showing you some of the “new” inventory it would help you decide if it was worth it to make a trip out to the store (which is only open two days each week: Fridays from 1 to 8 and Saturdays from 9 to 4).
Having been born and raised in Illinois – and being 52 years old – I should be used to the weird weather, but I’m not. Let me remind you of what our world looked like on Wednesday morning, February 2nd:
Here’s basically the same shot taken this morning, Friday, February 18th – a mere two weeks and two days later:
Don’t get me wrong – I’m not complaining! I’m fine saying buh-bye to the snow and below zero temperatures, but…what the heck?!
Okay, now that I got that out of my system, we can move onto showing you all the wonderful things that await at Jubilee Furniture this weekend!
super amazing sofa (couldn’t find a brand on it but it looks like it could be either a Room and Board piece or Crate & Barrel) for $275
cotton – like bed sheets – is the fabric used on this sweet love seat – so it’s smooth and cool to the touch and comfortable and priced $55
this sleeper sofa is a great neutral color and in good condition and is priced $175
this elegant Ethan Allen sleeper sofa (we got in a lot of sleepers this week) is in excellent condition and priced $275
this Room and Board sofa needs to be completely reupholstered and is priced only $10 (seriously – tons of rips and the seams ripped out – but great “bones” and a nice size)
I have this same Room and Board chair in my bedroom (read that post and see those photos here) but I don’t have the matching ottoman – I’ve priced the chair and ottoman $75 for both (some minor wear spots on both pieces, thus the lower price tag)
GORGEOUS drop leaf table for $165
this is a GREEN (it looks blue on my computer) water-mark, camel back sofa for $95
very nice (sorry the top photo is so dark) sleeper (again with the sleeper!) sofa for $245
this is a way cool (maybe my favorite piece this week, maybe) table with four chairs by Calligaris – there was some debate about what type of wood (teak?), note the round cut outs on the back of the chair (all the chair seat cushions need to be replaced). The price for all five pieces is $225
this is a wonderful – art deco – bedroom set by Bassett that includes: five drawer chest of drawers for $105; two drawer night stand for $45; nine drawer dresser with mirror for $85; and not shown a matching full or queen head board for $40
this is a gorgeous mission style wood queen size head board, foot board and side rails for $225 (mattress sold separately)
simple, wood, nice set of bunk beds for $100 (again, price does not include the mattresses or bunky boards)
super nice twin size head board, foot board, side rails and support boards (which allow you to use a mattress without a box spring – if you choose) for $145
this is a fantastic three piece leather sectional by Kreiss. Super nice leather – all cushions are completely covered with leather – so you can flip ‘em around and such – the armless piece could be added into the arrangement but it would make the already long part of the sofa even longer – know what I mean? There’s some minor fading and stains that I’ve been told can be fixed. The price for all three pieces is $575
now you see this counter-high, rolling table…
now you hardly see it! Priced $85
ServiceMaster by Armstrong was out yesterday and cleaned a number of pieces of furniture for us. ServiceMaster donates four hours of cleaning every month to Jubilee Furniture – for which we’re very grateful! Thank you!
The cushions need to dry for 24 hours before we can put them back into place, but this floral sectional and rust colored love seat are too wonderful not to give you a glimpse:
this is a four piece Smithe-Craft sectional priced $395 – in excellent condition and now professionally cleaned too!
this is a very cool Rowe rust color micro-suede love seat priced $95
We had an extra volunteer helping all this week which allowed Dan to change a few things up and I wanted to show you the “new and improved” Jubilee Furniture!
The area that we’ve always affectionately referred to as “bedroom land” is now home to most of our dining room pieces:
By moving the mattresses (and dressers and stuff) it will allow us to use the wall space to display artwork – which we have a ton of but had no where to hang it. Also, the lighting is better in this part of the store which will mean you can actually SEE the artwork (who’d thunk?)!
So where’s bedroom land now? In dining room land – of course!
Here’s looking towards our dock area:
The rest of the store is pretty much the same,
though Dan did build something so we can hang our chandeliers – which looks wonderful…
and we added another table to hold all of our lamps – which is a pretty impressive assortment (if I do say so myself!)!
And that, dear reader, wraps up another Friday post for you!
Say a prayer that my links (are you remotely impressed with my linking capability which is all thanks to Amanda – read more about wonderful Amanda here) all work!
There’s a shiny new dime to whoever spies the first robin of the season! (My grandmother used to give whichever of her grandkids saw the first robin or the first dandelion a dime – and the competition was fierce! Of course, that was when you could actually buy something with 10 cents! Those were the days, my friend!)
We also walked ten miles, barefoot in the snow to school everyday – and it was uphill both ways!
