We are family…I’ve got all my sisters with me!

I was raised in a family who mark occasions.  My mother was the original DIYer who created amazing birthday parties for each of us five kids (I remember one which included a small cloth doll – that my mom made - for each of my friends sitting as the centerpiece on the dining room table with ribbons connecting them to a place setting).  Gathering family and friends to celebrate both the large – and small – events of life is a way of affirming both the person being honored (“Yay – good for you”!) and the importance of community. 

Community is also a huge part of what we do at Jubilee Furniture.  Connecting with our customers is something we work hard at doing (whether you buy something or not).  Wanting to affirm uniquely you and connect in some small but meaningful way – is very important to all of us at the furniture store.

You just want to shop our amazing selection of quality used furniture without anyone bugging you?  We understand and respect that too!  We’re all pretty good at picking up on the “thanks, but no thanks don’t need/want any help” vibe! 

And what might you find if you stopped in the store either today from 1 to 8 or tomorrow from 9 to 4?  Let’s take a look at some of the furniture donated this week!

this is a FABULOUS three piece sectional – yet all the seat cushions (and some of the back cushions) have weird bleach-like spots (see last photo) on BOTH sides – the main body of the sectional is fine (go figure).  Looks great from a distance (?).  Priced $275

Though there are many disadvantages to Jubilee Furniture only being open two days each week (I’m sorry – but there’s nothing we can do about it right now!) – one advantage is how it feels a little like a celebration when we do open!

So, dear reader, I hope amazing, one-of-a-kind you can come celebrate with us, ‘cause – sing with me now – We are family…!
