A visit to Jubilee Furniture is like the sun breaking through a gray and cloudy sky!

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!

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!

JFC 07-29-11 012

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

JFC 07-29-11 015

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)

JFC 07-29-11 016

white leather bar stools – there are four of them – priced $10 each (leather is torn in varies places – FYI)

JFC 07-29-11 017

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)

JFC 07-29-11 021

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)

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.
