Having woken up the last two nights due to the wild storms which have blasted the area (but, unfortunately, not brought any relief from the heat and humidity) I thought I’d use storm analogies throughout today’s post where I show you some of the amazing furniture which was donated this week to Jubilee Furniture. These photos give you a glimpse at the roughly 30,000 square feet of inventory currently for sale today (Friday) from 1 to 8 and tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4.
Our customers are often blown away by the quantity and quality of our inventory. When you imagine how much you’d have paid at retail furniture stores for comparable items, it’s like it’s raining money directly into your bank account. The thundering cheers of satisfied customers is not an unusual sound at Jubilee. The toothy smile of welcome you’ll receive upon entering the store is as bright as a flash of lightning.
Maybe you should get more coffee before we continue.
Grab your umbrella and let’s walk through some of the new-to-us things currently available to purchase!
great color brown leather sofa – wear on the seat cushions and one small rip – fantastic nail head trim priced $145
wonderful wicker chair – very comfortable – priced $95
mint condition micro-suede sofa, comfortable too, priced $395
this made-in-China dining set has lovely carvings on chairs and table (carving continue on both extra table leaves too – which isn’t always the case). Set includes: table, two leaves, six chairs, seat cushions along with a second set, and table pads all for – drum roll, please! – $325
lovely Temple Stuart Early American two piece china cabinet for $85
bentwood rocker priced $35
we received 30+ chairs from Alberto’s in the Holiday Inn in Carol Stream – and they’re perfect for all my DIYers who’ll have the creativity to turn these ho-hum chairs into something spectacular – I have no doubt – at $10 a pop per chair you can buy extra and experiment!
lovely yellow sofa priced $75
Bernhardt sofa for $60
lovely glass and metal side table – top lifts off and you have a tray – priced $50
very nice sofa – both ends recline – priced $125 (price reflects a small fabric issue which isn’t super noticeable and could be covered with a throw or a pillow)
white leather bar stools – there are four of them – priced $10 each (leather is torn in varies places – FYI)
fantastic old farm house table priced $125; black leather chairs around said table are $4 each. Yes, you read that correctly – we have a good 10-15 black and white leather chairs and all of ‘em are priced $4 each – due to the fact the leather on this style of chair rips over time (either the seams come undone or the leather on the front of the back rips from being grabbed as the chair is being pulled out)
fabulous Steelcase chairs – two with wheels are priced $40 each; two without wheels are $30 each
oops, this photo should have been by the glass and metal side table with the top that is a tray – oh well, this end table/small shelf is priced $60
amazing retro one piece hutch priced $95 (looks like top part originally had doors – I’m assuming they were glass and broke over time – you could easily have doors cut if you prefer that look)
very nice, solid, well built table, two leaves and four chairs priced $145
these pieces are by Ethan Allen – from their mission style collection – sofa has denim covered cushions and is priced $95; chair with ottoman is $75
very nice La-Z-Boy sleeper sofa priced $75
two piece gorgeous entertainment center by Ethan Allen priced $195
The winds of change have been blowing for several years now that recycling, repurposing and reducing waste are good for everyone. That’s what we’re doing at Jubilee Furniture. Add in restoring hope and providing opportunities to those most in need in DuPage County – which is what Outreach does (whose programs and services Jubilee’s proceeds – minus our expenses – are helping to support) and you’ve just created the perfect storm.
Wouldn’t you agree, dear reader?
Oh my – I crack myself up sometimes.
