What makes a family and what does that have to do with Jubilee Furniture? I thought you’d never ask!


Lately it seems I’ve been seeing a ton of these type of family decals on cars and vans (image found here – I’m not endorsing or promoting Range Rovers) and it got me thinking about my Jubilee Furniture family. 

I’ve been in my role as general manager for almost five years and I’ve interacted with many of my volunteers and customers since I started and we’ve very much become “family” and I treasure that.  It’s why I work 12 hour days in a warehouse that’s approximately 1 million degrees, but I digress.

I’m thankful to have an amazing extended family – related to me by blood, adoption and marriage – but to have another “family” who I work with who I love and who make work fun – is incredible.  I don’t think they make car decals for that kind of family – or maybe they do but there are no back windows that could hold all the images!

Yesterday, late afternoon, as sweat was dripping off varies parts of my body and I still had lots of pricing to do – one of my work family members stopped back in the store (she had already been in earlier to help arrange) to see if I needed help.  In addition to the sweat, my face was beet-red and I’m pretty sure my hair was standing on end – to say Connie was an answer to prayer wouldn’t be an exaggeration! 

You see we have TONS of merchandise right now.  Seriously, our 30,000 square feet of warehouse space can hardly hold it all!  We are almost literally bursting at the seams!  So, today (Friday) from 1 to 8 or tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4 would be an excellent time to stop in and have a look.  What follows are more than 60 photos which represent SOME of what’s currently for sale (most of the photos are of items we received for donation this week – though I did snap some pictures of the more unique pieces which came in last week when I was on vacation).

I’ve never seen anything like these two matching pieces – second drawer is for hanging files! – one of the two has some rings on the top (from a plant?) and the file drawer needs work on one of the slides so is priced cheaper than the other (other is in perfect condition).  Perfect one is priced $155; not so perfect one is $100

Another part of my Jubilee Furniture family includes you, dear reader (in a good – not creepy – way)!  Every Friday when I sit down to compose my weekly update I send up a prayer that you’re doing well and I feel such gratitude that you stop by the blog and often stop by the store too!

I hope I see you soon and though I said the temperature in the store is 1 million degrees – compared to the outside temperature – it’s positively cool (at least that’s what I keep telling myself)!
