Luke and Emily and both sets of parents are all regular Jubilee Furniture customers and Luke's dad, Gordon, is a key volunteer without whom we couldn't do what we do (Gordon does everything from help move furniture for the Thursday design team to load merchandise for customers to recycle our broken TVs, empty water bottles and pop cans).
Thanks for a fun peek into the night's festivities, Luke and Emily!
Before I sign off, I also got an email from Monique - another regular Jubilee Furniture customer - with the following plea:
Susan - I bought this chair a while ago at Jubilee Furniture and STILL haven not re-upholstery it. Aside from the funkadelic print, it's covered in what can only be described as Muppet fur. No, really, you can run a comb through it.
Perhaps your viewers have suggestions on where I can take my little monster to get some new skin?
Not sure why Monique wants to mess with perfection - but to each his own! If you have any great ideas for Monique - please leave a comment. She lives in DuPage County.
Have you purchased something from the store and are willing to take photos and email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the hope of inspiring others to see used furniture in new ways? If so, that would be peachy!
The guys have fabulous pickups all week and I'll be back on Friday with photos of some of the funkadelic (what a great word!) furniture that's been donated!
Peace out, dear reader!
