Jubilee Furniture weekly update for Friday, August 30, 2013

This is the first fall since 1994 that I haven’t had a child starting school – and though I don’t miss the expense associated with educating my kids – I do miss the excitement and possibilities that come with a new grade, new teacher and all the new learning that will occur (hopefully).

I would come home from parent curriculum night positively bubbling over with how wonderful the school year sounded.  “You spend a WHOLE semester learning about World War II!  You know your grandmother was alive during that war and could tell you about her experiences!”

Now I find myself smiling at harried parents with a cart full of notebooks, sharpened pencils and mandatory boxes of tissues as they – and their third grader –carefully study the supply list and search for the correct color markers.

Similarly, I’m very much enjoying the college students – some with their parents, some their new roommates – who come into Jubilee Furniture looking for inexpensive furniture to finish decorating their dorm room or student apartment.

And what a selection we currently have!  One of my volunteers counted our current inventory of sofas, sectionals and loveseats and I was flabbergasted at the numbers!  Right now Jubilee Furniture has 82 sofas to choose from, 13 sectionals and 25 loveseats!

What follows are photos of SOME of that inventory:

I have a call into one of my go-to people for unusual vintage pieces about this adjustable back blue pleather chaise that was in a school nurse’s office (still has a school district tag on it).  It’s in excellent condition – minor fabric imperfections – I’m just not sure how to price it.  Mike, Barry, Dustin – what would you suggest?

So, if you – dear reader – see a middle-aged, curly haired woman staring longingly at you and your kids in the store school supply aisle – it’s just me wondering where the time has gone.

And, please don’t call store security – I mean no harm.
