The last few weeks I’ve been working a million hours (give or take an hour *smile*). Things at Jubilee Furniture are so busy that I find myself doing nothing but working and then going home and eating and immediately going to bed. Though in some ways it’s wonderful (store’s doing really well and my boss loves our high sales) – it’s not healthy for me.
Don’t get me wrong – I love what I do – but when I don’t have time to take care of: myself (I need alone time and especially love to read), my house (order is very important to me and though I’m not a super neat-freak – I like a fairly clean house), and family and friend connections – I begin to resent work and the sound of a ringing phone makes me snarl.
Recognizing I was running on empty (do you remember that song?), this week I’ve deliberately stopped worrying about completing every last thing on my desk and left work at a normal hour. I got my hair cut and went home and colored it (oops, cat’s out of the bag if you thought my hair color was natural!). I’ve had some great conversations with my husband and my son (my daughter and I keep missing each other – but we had a funny text exchange – my, how times have changed!) – and I feel human again!
And ready to have a fabulous weekend at Jubilee Furniture! Remember we’re open today (Friday) from 1 to 8 and tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4! We’ll also be open next Friday and Saturday (two days after Thanksgiving) our normal store hours (so add us to your crazy list of places you’re going to shop at).
Here’s what’s “new”!
great plaid oversize sofa $185
swivel rocker $55
this is a very nice leather sofa – but probably wasn’t super expensive to begin with (unlike a couple of other pieces we received for donation this week) – priced $195
this leather set is in good condition and very comfortable – chair and ottoman are priced $145; matching loveseat is $195
here’s a lovely sofa and loveseat by Rowe – photos don’t show how much both of these pieces need to be cleaned – sofa is priced $50; loveseat $30
fun curved two pieced, loose pillow back sectional by Style Line – priced $75
amazing oak and upholstered two person rocker for $175
here’s a top-of-the-line leather sofa in excellent – like new – condition priced $595
this two piece sectional is microfiber and should clean up well (and it needs cleaning) and both ends are wall-hugging recliners priced $195
great retro melon-color side chair for $30
cool vintage sofa and loveseat in wonderful condition except both pieces need to be cleaned (not sure what’s with all the needs to be cleaned stuff we got in – maybe because I ask about stains and there are no stains on either piece but instead just overall wear/dirt?) loveseat is priced $35; matching sofa for $50
no cleaning needed on this gorgeous sofa priced $195
two great wingback chairs priced $95 each
this is a fabulous McCreary sofa – but it’s faded and also needs to be cleaned (you starting to hear a theme in today’s post?) and is priced $30

excellent twin size captain’s bed for $195
If you – like me – have found yourself all work and no play then I hope you’ll stop in at the furniture store where a warm welcome, free cookies and 30,000 square feet of fantastic furniture will recharge your battery and renew your sense of adventure and delight!
Until Tuesday customer inspiration – blessings to you, dear reader!
