Jubilee Furniture weekly update post for Thursday, July 24, 2014

I ran into a long-time Jubilee Furniture volunteer at the grocery store last Saturday and then had the pleasure of speaking to several regular customers by phone this week.  All four encounters reminded me how much I miss working at the store.

That’s probably the only down-side I see to our growth over the last eight years – the relationships I’ve developed with so many of you that seem to have ended with my new role working exclusively with donors.  As I’ve thought about it I’ve come up with a couple of ideas so you and I can stay in touch.  Ready?

  • Become a donor!  You know the kind of quality furniture we accept – do some late-summer furniture purging and then call me at (630) 337-1467 to schedule a FREE donation pickup.  You’ll help area kids and families through the programs and services at Outreach Community Ministries AND you and I can catch up!  Win/win!
  • Email me at sgalbraith@outreachcommin.org and let’s have coffee (or tea in my case)!  I work Monday through Friday in downtown Wheaton (where Outreach’s main offices are) and would love to take a break and see you!

Don’t know who I am and think my invitation to meet for coffee is super weird?  No problem!  Ignore the opening few paragraphs and continue scrolling to see SOME of the fantastic, fabulous, amazing, wonderful furniture available at Jubilee Furniture!

these are very attractive leather pieces by DeCoro.  Each piece has some areas where the leather is cracked and peeling off.  On the chairs – the issues are much more minor than the sofa (the last photo is of the seat cushion on the sofa where there are a number of cracks).  We’re selling the chairs for $125 each and the sofa for $195.  Also note – my camera flash actually made some of the imperfections look worse than they really are

I don’t remember seeing this Century sofa before so snapped a picture and then looked at the price tag and it was marked down 25% – so obviously it’s been around a bit!  Current price is $101.25 (started at $135)
