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:
lovely sofa with fabulous nail-head trim – needs to be cleaned and there’s a spring poking out (but not through the fabric) in the back – priced $95
nice side chair priced $35; unique shaped side table for $45
cream colored loveseat with small pattern – we received 4 of them from the lobby of Windsor Park Manor – all need to be cleaned but otherwise in good condition – all priced $45 each
slip covered sleeper sofa – slip covers need to be laundered – priced $125
lovely, gold, lighted, curio cabinet priced $95
super nice sofa – another one with nail-head trim (which I love!) – only issue, and I’ve seen this a bunch a times with other sofas, is one arm has a bit of a dip in it (not plump and perfectly rounded any more) – priced $125
comfy sofa in a warm fleece-like fabric priced $65
two Thomasville side chairs – some wear showing – priced $40 each
denim slip covered rocker – denim faded and worn but otherwise in good shape – priced $85
two piece sectional with sleeper element – either needs to be reupholstered or majorly cleaned and rips repaired – priced $30; square coffee table for $15
lovely side chair for $55
this is an identical sofa to the rose one in the first photo – actually same fabric as the four loveseats we received from Windsor Park (also came from their lobby) – like others, needs to be cleaned (but no springs poking fabric out in back) – also priced $95
this is a fabulous wrought iron table with four chairs – chairs have been painted silver with fun fabric on ‘em – table needs to re repainted – set is $145
nice gray sofa – needs some spot cleaning only – priced $85
green upholstered side chairs for $35 each (and there’s a third one too); floral bench for $45
this is a lovely set by Kincaid – there’s a full or queen size head board, foot board and side rails priced $75; one night stand for $35; large dresser with mirror that goes on top of narrow three drawer piece (it’s sitting in front of it in the photo – the mirror was too heavy for me to lift onto the base by myself) priced $125; tall chest of drawers is $85 – fun “crystals” in hardware adds a touch of shine and makes the pieces less masculine

fabulous small drop leaf table with two chairs $125 for the set
amazing rush-seat rocker for $70
Though I hit the ground running on my first day back after vacation – I was still tired when I got home. You see I not only worked 12 hours but I also aged a year!
