Jubilee Furniture weekly post for Friday, October 4, 2013

I’m typically up by 6:00 a.m. most mornings but, recently, can hardly drag myself out of bed by 6:30 a.m. due to how stinkin’ dark it is outside!  It’s like my body is saying – “Oh no you don’t!  If it’s this dark out it must be the middle of the night and there’s no way it’s time to get up!”  With such sound logic it’s hard to argue.

Yet it IS time to get up.

I think resale stores often have to overcome a similar type of thinking.  “Oh, it’s USED so it must be damaged/gross/icky/whatever.” when the truth is we have fabulous inventory.

This week in particular, Jubilee Furniture’s selection contains some of the nicest pieces we’ve ever received!  Partly due to a fantastic donation we received of furniture from two model apartments and partly due to fabulous mint-condition pieces from individual donors.  Truly spectacular.  Let’s take a look.

wonderful IKEA ROCKER and ottoman – in excellent condition except there appears to be cat hair on the upholstery so priced only $50 for the set

here’s another fabulous leather sofa – this time by Italsofa – in person the leather has a slightly greenish cast – priced $575

oh man – I am in love with this Walter E. Smithe brown plaid sofa with nail-head trim and crisp brown piping!  Alas, there is a rip behind one of the back cushions (second photo - stitch ‘er up and no one will be the wiser) and a small tear on one of the back corners.  So, there two issues forced the priced down to $65!  This one won’t last long!

JFC 10-04-13 036JFC 10-04-13 037

here’s another piece I’m in love with – brownish velvet (a little worn on the arms) SWIVEL chair priced $65 – only negative is it sits a little low to the ground (add legs to raise it up?)

JFC 10-04-13 040JFC 10-04-13 041

golly – this is a fabulous and funky four piece sectional – some of the pieces are in excellent condition some of them are worn and one back section is ripped – so only priced $95; fun glass and stone round side table is $45

JFC 10-04-13 048JFC 10-04-13 049

this two piece sofa can adjust in different ways – a bit hard to describe in writing but there’s a lever that allows you to swing the “body” of each in different directions (so it’s either oriented like a sofa or like a chaise) – dark blue fabric is somewhat faded and there are several outlines where stains have been cleaned – so only priced $95 for the whole thing

JFC 10-04-13 051JFC 10-04-13 050

sweet retro two drawer night stand for $15 and armoire is $75 – both by Mount Airy Furniture Co.

here’s a three piece bedroom set by Thomasville – first two photos are of the armoire which is priced $125; next up is a chest of drawers for $95; and finally a long low dresser with mirror for $65.  Dresser top needs a little work but otherwise these pieces are excellent

more furniture from the model home – gorgeous blue plaid sofa for $325; oversize blue chair with matching ottoman priced $165

JFC 10-04-13 059JFC 10-04-13 060

this FOUR piece entertainment center is unique in that the middle section is in two pieces to make moving it easier – love the white cottage style – priced $375

JFC 10-04-13 061JFC 10-04-13 062JFC 10-04-13 063JFC 10-04-13 064JFC 10-04-13 065

here are the final pieces from the model – gorgeous dresser with mirror priced $225; queen size head board, foot board and side rails for $185; alas there’s only ONE nightstand and it’s priced $95 (nightstand still has the stretch wrap around the drawers so they won’t open and get damaged when they’re being moved)

Thankfully, it should be nice and light (unless it’s storming) by the time we open today at 1:00 p.m. so there’s no excuse for you not to come by!  Of course, when we close at 8:00 p.m. it will be dark but NIGHTS are supposed to be dark!+ Tomorrow our store hours are from 9 to 4.

Peace to you, dear reader!

Oh and Ashley?  Where have you and Mark been?  Friday nights aren’t the same without you two!
