I often mention how grateful I am for my volunteers (here, here and here for example), and yesterday when my design team (I love calling ‘em that, though they think it’s a bit of a stretch) was hard at work, I FINALLY remembered to take a new photo since the group has evolved over the last couple of years.
I talked about how overwhelmed I often feel when I walk into the store each Thursday in this post, so I won’t go into great detail now – but suffice to say after the guys have completed almost three days of donation pickups – there’s a lot of furniture dumped into one area of the store (and if you remember my post last Friday – where I mentioned that donation calls were slightly lower – I’m very glad for that furniture dump, overall). Remember, Thursday is the first time I’m seeing what’s “new” since I spend the first part of the week at my desk at Outreach (oh my crap, this has to be the most boring blog post to date! Let’s see if I can wrap it up before you fall asleep!). SO, anywho, this amazing team shows up each Thursday and creates warm, inviting vignettes out of that mess o’furniture!
from left to right there’s: Anne, Linnea, Deb, Marsha and Connie! Three cheers for each of them - and ladies, you know I love you and am so appreciative of your hard work and great design sense each week. Thank you.
“So, what did the team have to arrange this week, Susan?” you ask. Excellent question. Let’s take a look.
great greenish/tan color on this sofa that needs some spot cleaning and donor did have a cat – for $95
look how amazing this buffet/flat screen TV base? – is! I love the hardware and it’s priced $145
these two pieces are a deep purple/blue color and also have a small amount of pet hair on them – but otherwise in good condition – sofa is priced $115; love seat $95
this is a very nice outdoor patio set with an oval table, six chairs – with cushions – umbrella and umbrella stand all for $375
you’re not seeing double – there are two of these sweet pink swivel/rockers and both are priced $75 each
though not too bad looking, there are multiple issues with this sofa so it’s priced only $20
this is a truly lovely Ethan Allen side chair that’s priced $145
someone with some vision and elbow grease could turn these pieces into something amazing – and I’ve priced them to sell – the three piece rattan sofa is only $20 and the rattan chair is $12 – come on all your DIYers – they have your name of ‘em!
wonderful shade of green on these three Sealy pieces which are in good condition: sofa is priced $115; and each over sized chair is $85
I love the clean lines of this small writing desk which is priced $125; chair which is pulled up to desk is $20
this is the two piece corner section of a larger sectional – we just got these two pieces though. They’re by Lane and are a nice cushy leather and I’ve priced them $40 – you will need to wipe down the legs and bottom of the wood structure with bleach since there appears to be some mildew
this is a GORGEOUS maple eight drawer dresser by T.F.I with mirror and a piece of glass on the top and it’s priced $165
here’s another nice maple dresser – this time it’s six drawers (and one knob is missing) with a mirror (peeking over the top) and is priced $125
one drawer night stand matches the dresser I just showed you and it’s priced $45 (has some damage on the top); four drawer little dresser next to the night stand is $50
green painted entertainment center for $85
gorgeous entertainment center for $225
solid, well built, bunk beds with bunky boards (what you use instead of box springs) for $125; twin mattresses $40 each
clean this black chaise and you have a great place to read and relax for only $40
small drop leaf table with two chairs for $50
very nice oak pedestal table with two leaves and four chairs (two have arms and two are armless) for $245
lovely Broyhill sofa for $95; matching Broyhill love seat for $75 (in excellent condition – priced a little lower due to the dated fabric)
sweet rolling tea cart for $95
this is a very nice Cushman Colonial drop leaf end table? coffee table? priced $95
and last – but certainly not least – actually my favorite pieces this week are these three nesting tables by Heywood Wakefield in almost perfect condition and priced $195 for the set. Sign. Love.
And there you have it, dear reader – a look at “what’s new?” at Jubilee Furniture where you’ll always find good furniture at good prices and it’ll be arranged in a comely fashion too (does anyone use the word “comely” any more?)!
Hope to see you at the store either today (Friday) from 1 to 8 or tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4!
