You might have noticed two new faces in the warehouse at Jubilee Furniture. Dan Hooson has replaced Dan Snyder as our Warehouse Manager and John Wasp continues to fill in for Chris Jackson (Assistant Warehouse Manager) who’s out with a shoulder injury.
After 3 1/2 years in his position – a new opportunity came knocking on Dan Snyder’s door that was too good to pass up and we couldn’t be happier for him!
Our “new” Dan (as one of my regular customers calls him – Hi Tara!) has a wealth of experience in resale and the ins and outs of managing a fast paced environment as well as dealing with fantastic donors!
John is what I would call a “gentleman” in that he’s forever rushing to take something out of my hands – or one of my very capable but eligible for the senior discount at Carson's volunteers – and instead of thanking him we get all huffy and tell him we’re not so old that we can’t lift stuff YET! He’s learning – and quickly!
You’ll find both new Dan and John ready to help you today from 1 to 8 and tomorrow from 9 to 4! What follows are photos of some of the new-to-us furniture the guys picked up this week:
these two pieces are covered in a fun jungle print – the sofa is priced $80 and the loveseat is $50 – both are somewhat worn
I love, love, love this one piece bookcase with a small writing surface – priced $95
I actually love the lines of these two chairs – both need to be reupholstered (actually you’ll see several other pieces today that are excellent candidates to be reupholster with great lines and cheap price tags) – priced $20 each
FABULOUS bookcases – both pieces are completely adjustable regarding where you can have the shelves and other pieces – priced $125 each
very nice table with 2 leaves and 6 chairs – there are some rips in the caning – set is priced for $145
Stanley table (no leaves) and six chairs – no rips in any of the caning on these chairs (that I could see) – priced $195; matching rolling buffet (with a cool stone top) for $125
wonderful foam twin size mattress for $135; twin size storage headboard, foot board, side rails and slats (so a box spring isn’t required) – I would have sworn it was black in person but it looks navy in these photos so now I’m not sure – priced $145
set of four chairs – all of them are in great shape – $100 for the set
though I love the bird print on these two wingback chairs – they too really need to be recovered – priced $30 each
older chair – at first I thought it needed a thorough cleaning but on a second inspection I think that’s the fabric color and it’s in remarkably good shape – still I had already put a $10 price tag on it and was too tired to re-price it higher so there you have it!
two sweet swivel rockers priced $40 each; two oval oak end tables priced $30 each
here’s another set of fantastic chairs – set include four armless chairs and two arm chairs and, again, I couldn’t find any rips in the caning BUT the seats need to be recovered (did you see that coming?) – priced $175 for all six
here’s my final candidate for being reupholstered – it’s a chaise lounge priced $30
large table with 2 leaves and EIGHT chairs – all for $145
gorgeous, amazing, two piece retro buffet with drop down serving bar (I think) priced $195
Heywood Wakefield rolling buffet priced $125
wooden sofa table priced $55 (note water stain on wood)
sofa with chaise – chaise can be flipped and be on other end of the sofa – priced $195 and in excellent condition
So, dear reader – be sure and welcome Dan and John to the Jubilee Furniture family the next time you’re in!
Oh, and don’t be offended when they do all the moving and lifting – it’s not that they think you’re too old to do it yourself – it’s their job!
