Jubilee Furniture weekly update post for Friday, February 7, 2014

With the cat out of the bag about our upcoming move – people have lots of good questions.  Unfortunately, we don’t have very good answers. 

There’s some work that needs to be done at the new building (730 E. North Ave. – which is just a little east of our current location) and – like any good not-for-profit – we’re using volunteers to keep the cost down as much as possible.  Lining up the volunteers – as well as – scheduling paid workers for certain jobs, coupled with a bitterly cold and snowy winter makes for a bit of a nightmare.

Our target date (remember, this could very well be a moving target) is to be out of our current space by the end of March with a seamless transition into the new building the following Friday/Saturday. 

Once we nail down our final sales days in our current space – we’ll back up three weeks and begin our liquidation sale.  The liquidation sale will start at 20% off whatever’s in the store; increase to 50% off the following Friday/Saturday; increase again to 80% off the next Friday/Saturday and end with a FREE MUST TAKE WTH YOU NOW blowout!

Once in the new space we don’t see opening more hours immediately.  Again, staffing is our issue.  Though we do hope to add Thursday hours fairly quickly after making the move.

Speaking of staffing – we’re currently looking to fill two paid positions.  Click here to find out more about our Transportation Coordinator/Lead Driver position.  And here for the Store Operations Manager job description.

Meanwhile, it’s business as usual at 610 E. North Ave.!  What follows are photos of SOME of the amazing furniture which was donated this week!

wonderful side chairs – there are two of them – they both need the wood trim to be cleaned up and some dark stain applied to cover the scratches – priced $55 each

for anyone who keeps asking about the many 6’ or 7’ rolls of fabric we’ve had for several months now – we’re finally ready to sell ‘em.  The fabric came from Serta and is normally used for mattresses and box springs so the fabric has a finish on it and isn’t like regular material (you have to touch it to know what I mean).  We were hoping to sell the fabric to a bedding company since we probably have over $50,000 worth of fabric – but alas that didn’t work out.  We’re selling the un-opened rolls (still in plastic) for $20 each and the opened, partial rolls for $10 each

I love the lines of this chairs – but the seat needs to be re-upholstered (which means the whole thing probably does too unless you like that look with two different fabrics) – priced $20

I love this Plunkett camel back sofa – I noticed crayon marks on one cushion (which we were able to flip over) but otherwise in good condition – priced $95

I am super intrigued by this couch – it’s upholstered in two similar materials – and the fabric on the cushions (which are attached) has interesting squiggles on it.  Words?  Someone’s signature?  Random squiggles?  I could not find any manufacturer’s name (I even flipped it over).   Though super firm – it’s surprisingly comfortable too.  We’re selling this mystery sofa for $195
