Make new friends, but keep the old…

one is silver and the other’s gold! Do you remember that Girl Scout song? I thought of it because this week we received a number of pieces of furniture with shiny gold and some silver finishes – VERY shiny!

The song is also fitting because we want to create a welcoming environment at Jubilee Furniture where you come in and feel like a friend – because that’s how we see you. Either as a new silver friend that we’re just getting to know or a golden friend who regularly stops by! Either way, we love ya!

So, you ready to see some shiny furniture? Come on friend, let’s go!

this ornate, golden and shell (what do you call it when it’s got a layer of shells?) side table would be a great conversation starter and chances are you will NEVER find the same piece at a friend’s house! – priced $145

and the shine continues with this fabulous Kessler Industries glass top table (glass is 1/2” thick) and four chairs (gorgeous apricot color seat cushions are in mint condition) priced $775. Kessler was founded in 1960 and creates cast aluminum furniture – this stuff is heavy! Leave it as is – or paint it black? bronze? red? – look at the detail – how amazing is this set? Very amazing!

I often tell donors that entertainment centers designed to hold an older TV are becoming the new “white elephant” (no one wants ‘em). Yet many are beautiful pieces of fine furniture and if you could only see how you could use the large TV space for something else…thus Dan built an adjustable shelf unit that fits in one of the entertainment center we had in the store and turned it into a wonderful shelf/storage piece! Dan would be happy to tell you how he retro-fitted this one and how you can too!

there’s something about these chairs (there are four matching) that I really like! I’ve priced all four for $100 (that’s $25 a chair – what a deal!)

Then I thought I’d walk with you through Jubilee Gallery and show you some of the impressive art we currently how both on display and for sale! I hope you can read Tim’s price tags. Oh, and be warned the first photo is of clowns and might scare younger children! *smile*

So, on this sunny, shiny day it seems like it’d be perfect to come out to friendly, shiny Jubilee Furniture! Remember we’re open Fridays from 1 to 8 and Saturdays from 9 to 4! And when you come in say, “Hi!” to Connie. She’s covering for me while I’m at a women’s retreat (and tell her, “Susan says thank you SO much!”)

Let’s end today’s post with another great Girl Scout song – sing with me, dear reader!

I've got something in my pocket, that belongs across my face. I keep it very close at hand, in a most convenient place. I'm sure you couldn't guess it if you guessed a long, long while. So I'll take it out and put it on, it's a great big Brownie smile!

Oh, and a very Happy Birthday to my golden sister, Betsy!
