Greetings from Jubilee Furniture!

After a week off – I returned to work on Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. and left at 7:30 p.m.  I don’t put in 12 hour days every day – but it’s not unusual either.

Before you think I’m complaining – I’m not.  I’m grateful to 1.) have a job and 2.) work for an organization who is truly making a difference in the lives of area children and families (like Megan – click here to read her story).

Additionally, my position allows me to connect with amazing donors (have some quality used furniture you no longer need and live in, or near, DuPage County, IL?  Click here), fabulous volunteers (thinking you’d like to give back to the community by volunteering a few hours each week?  Click here), and very special customers (want to read what customers are saying about Jubilee Furniture?  Click here).

The store is chock-full of fantastic furniture – again!  We’re open today (Friday) from 1 to 8 and tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4 and what follows are just a FEW of the new-to-us items which were donated this week:

Change is in the air- time to decorate for fall!

Welcome to the Jubilee blog- where you get a sneak peak at all the awesomeness available for purchase this weekend!  My name is Joy and I am one of the many volunteers that helps Susan run Jubilee Furniture, which supports Outreach Community Ministries.

Change is in the air- time to decorate for fall.  What better way than to change some of your household decor and decorate with some new-to-you furniture?

Jubilee is open on Fridays from 1-8 and Saturdays 9-4 at 610 E. North Avenue in Carol Stream.

Beautiful vintage mahogany 5 drawer dresser, missing some hardware, $95. 

Three chairs with lovely blue plaid. Side chairs are $15/each, arm chair is $18.  Note the rip on one of the side chair- could be a fun DIY project to redo the fabric!


Light colored floral couch for $55.  See picture below for a better image of the floral and striped pattern.


Cute little maple night stand for $35.


Cool patterned wingback chair and ottoman for $55- kind of looks like that chevron pattern that is really trendy right now. 

Gray microfiber small sofa for $85.

Little circle table that will expand with included table leaf- $75.

Green sofa for $75 and coffee table with leather insert for $65.



Cute dining chairs (there are 2!) $35/each.  The fabric is a nice yellow and green pattern, but would be very easy to switch out and customize to your taste.


Vintage roller swivel desk chair, $65.

Plaid Plunkett sleeper sofa for $225.

Red wingback chair $65. There are 2 matching chairs and they look great next to the Plunkett sleeper sofa!
This dining set is really cool- the table leaves slide out from under the table for a longer look.  AND there's a custom made glass top!!  Table, glass top and 4 chairs for $495.

Leather sofa for $195, definitely a worn look.  Matching ottoman and (I think) a chair that I forgot to take a picture.

Classy white sleeper sofa for $135.

Blue sofa that turns into a twin sleeper!! $125.

This is a really cool and unique piece- Westnova glass top table with 6 chairs. A Danish "totem" style.  Comes with a custom dining pad.

Black sideboard table for $145.

AWESOME dark blue sectional sofa from Room and Board.  There is some fading on the back.  New for $3,199.  Jubilee price is only $995!!!

Lighted curio cabinet $95.

Oak table with 6 chairs- $275.  Edges do slide out to add a leaf, but none were given with the donation.

Formica topped table for $45.

Amazing dark brown leather dining chair- $65 each (there are 2).

Hope you make it out to Jubilee this weekend!!
