With just over a week until Christmas some of you might be panicking about what to purchase for a certain hard-to-buy-for person on your list. Well, your worries are over because I’m here with the perfect gift idea! A Jubilee Furniture gift certificate!
Yep, we’re now offering gift certificate in whatever amount you desire and each comes with a handsome mailing envelope! Phone orders accepted (630.337.1467 and have your Visa, MasterCard or Discover card handy) and I’ll mail the gift certificate – with your personal message of good cheer – to the lucky recipient!
To give credit where due – I’ve looked into Jubilee Furniture gift CARDS off and on for several years and was always stymied by the cost when a co-worker (Hi Lynda!) mentioned her stepson had recently moved out and she’d love to give him a gift certificate to the store. After telling her my gift card woes, she said, “No, not a gift CARD but a simple gift CERTIFICATE.” Well, you don’t have to hit ME with a 2 x 4!
Hence, the Jubilee Furniture Gift Certificate was born (and isn’t the world a better place because of it! Okay – maybe not).
But the world IS a better place since my sister, Peggy, used this old photo of us kids as her Facebook profile picture.
I’m guessing this photo was taken around 1964. Mindy is behind me and she’s the oldest, followed closely by Peggy, then Jimmy, me and Betsy. So, was there any question in your mind which one was me? Nope, didn’t think so.
The world is also a better place due to the vast amount of amazing furniture available for purchase at Jubilee Furniture today (Friday) from 1 to 8 and tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4. Allow me to show you some of the new-to-us furniture received for donation this very week!
