Designing women of the best kind!

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!

Without further ado – here is my fantastic design team!JFC 03-25-11 002

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.

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!

Take care!
