Jubilee Furniture weekly update post for Thursday, May 5, 2016

After thinking I've really mastered using the camera function on my phone - last night about halfway through taking photos my fat fingers obviously hit something and suddenly my camera was taking black and white pictures (which I actually think is very cool and artsy but not a good idea if trying to convey a fairly true representation of a piece of furniture). After fiddling around for a while I changed it back to color and resumed shooting but then this morning when I was uploading my photos about half were blank. 

All that to say, I'm sorry! You're just going to have to trust me that there are LOTS more amazing pieces - once again the store is brimming with fabulous finds! Here's the furniture I did manage to capture. 

this is a really cool bench - priced $295

amazing side chair in a cool graphic fabric and in excellent condition for $225

two Lloyd Flanders chairs and a matching side table with protective glass - 
all look like new! Priced $395 for the set. Lloyd Flanders uses a vinyl all weather wicker (here's an interesting video about the company) and here's a similar Lloyd Flanders chair that retails for $1,293.75 (for ONE chair - helps you see that our $395 price tag is really a steal!)

neat campaign inspired desk for $55 - top needs some work

very nice Klaussner sofa in a micro suede - priced $145

fantastic round oak table with one leaf and four chairs - all in very good condition - priced $225

Lazboy brand sofa and ottoman - I love the shape of the front bottom panel! Some fraying on corner of one of the legs of the ottoman but otherwise in very good condition - priced $125 for both pieces. Fabulous down filled throw pillows are $15 each

I dream of never having to adjust my couch cushions again - with this Walter E. Smithe sofa that dream would come true! Love the shape of this one! I saw one minor spot but  
otherwise in excellent condition. Priced only $95

I looked and looked to see why these pieces by International Furniture would have the low prices tags they do - and couldn't find anything (other than some minor general wear). I LOVE this set - especially all three pieces together (but then you know I love plaids and stripes!). 
The chairs are $35 each and the sofa is $75 

wonderful swivel chair (I took the throw pillow off just to see what it looked like without it) 
in excellent condition. Priced $155

really gorgeous buffet by Bernhardt! Tons of storage and a beautiful curved front. The top has scratches that will need to be refinished. Priced $165 

these mint condition side chairs by Wesley Hall are truly in perfect shape! Priced $215 each

sweet buffet for $85

wonderful mission style drop down writing desk. Bottom drawer can hold hanging 
file folders. In excellent condition and priced $185

gorgeous antique sofa - really amazing - priced $125

two matching side chair - cool unique shape - in a deep orange micro-suede. 
Both need to be cleaned especially the arms. Priced $35 each

Early American style loveseat - in good condition - priced $55

fabulous oak table with two drawers - sits lower to the ground then a standard table. Priced $75

amazing and comfortable - set of four side chairs priced $60 for all four! Some spot cleaning needed

and then six more of the same chairs (again, some spot cleaning needed on the chairs) sit around this cool double pedestal table with two leaves. Table top needs some work. 
Really a unique set and priced only $195 for all! 

wonderful Ethan Allen dresser w/bookcase hutch (two pieces) in great condition and priced $95

excellent condition white wicker lingerie chest with protective glass on top for $145 

there are six drawers underneath this twin size bed! Plenty of space for clothes or toys! Priced $135. Twin size used mattress is $35 (I'm not sure where that mirror sitting on top of the mattress goes)

beautiful queen or full size headboard, footboard and side rails - note scratch on the footboard in my last photo (should be an easy fix with a cover-up wood pen). Priced $195. Sitting on top is one of our queen size prototype mattresses from Serta. Donated from their Research and Development department in Hoffman Estates - these mattresses (and we have quite a few - many different styles and different prices) have never been used! This one is their IComfort Insight Everfeel mattress. Same mattress retails at the Sam's Club website for $1,074 (without a foundation). 
Our price? $395 
(again, this is for a queen size mattress only - no foundation)

I am bound and determined NOT to be one of those older people who can't make heads or tails out of the latest technology - so this afternoon when I'll be seeing my 27 year old daughter I'll have her fix my camera. Hah! Just kidding. I'll ask her to SHOW me what I pushed, how to correct it, and then I'll promptly forget the steps. Just keeping it real, dear reader!
