I had planned on introducing you to three new EmilysBreakfast Furniture employees – then two of them left before I remembered I wanted to take their photos – so that will have to wait to next week.

Since we were planning on having a super fun YARD SALE today, tomorrow and Saturday – I realized it made sense to share that anyway.  I snapped these two photos as I was leaving and the second one certainly does not capture our inventory that’s ready to be moved onto the grassy area (please, no rain; please, no rain).  Having our own property allows us to do some creative things we were unable to do in our old space. 

So, here’s the skinny:

  • we’ve priced a ton of inventory $5, $10, $15 or $20 (everything that’s part of the yard sale will be outside – thus the plea for no rain)
  • price includes sales tax
  • volunteers will be standing by who will take your CASH and mark the item SOLD
  • everything from the yard sale MUST BE TAKEN IMMEDIATELY WITH YOU (just like most yard sales)
  • you leave with a fabulous piece of furniture that you bought super cheap.  We clean out our older inventory and make room for new stuff!  Everyone wins!

Meanwhile, on the inside of the store there are so many new-to-us pieces which are FABULOUS, GORGEOUS, AMAZING, WONDERFUL, LOVELY, SWEET, and FANTASTIC that I ran out of adjectives on the price tags!  Seriously, there’s that much to swoon over. 

Don’t believe me?  Let’s take a look:

this is an amazingly beautiful French Provincial vanity and mirror by Joerns Bros. – priced $475 for the set

JFC 05-08-14 005JFC 05-08-14 006

fantastic, solid bookcase – perfect size – for $145

this leather Chesterfield by Classic is where I ran out of descriptors.  Truly words fail me.  I noticed one spot where one of the buttons is missing and there is some wear on the leather (but the good kind of wear).  Priced $525.  Sweet black painted pine butler's coffee table in front of the Chesterfield is priced $45

JFC 05-08-14 012JFC 05-08-14 013

this swivel rocker/recliner (back recliners but there’s no foot rest) by Palliser is amazing!  Priced $425

JFC 05-08-14 014JFC 05-08-14 015

this is a cool piece – just some issues with it.  There are noticeable cracks on both side of the piece and one of the marble pieces is also cracked (been repaired but it’s obvious).  There’s a single shelf when you open the doors – so offers a lot of storage.  Priced $50

I tried to get a photo of the manufacture's tag (last photo) but it didn’t come out so well (sorry).  This leather and wood sofa is by a Scandinavian company called Ekornes and this sofa is called “stressless” (Connie sat on it and immediately felt stress-free so this is one amazing sofa!).  In excellent condition.  Priced $825

JFC 05-08-14 024JFC 05-08-14 025

fabulous hall or entry table (though it’s finished on the front so could be used in another area of your home too) – priced $135

JFC 05-08-14 026JFC 05-08-14 027JFC 05-08-14 028JFC 05-08-14 029

these Room & Board two door bookcases offer plenty of storage, solid construction (solid maple and maple veneer) and a clean design.  I found them in an older catalog (Woodwind collection appear to be a custom order now) for $949 each.  We’re selling them for $345 each and we have four of ‘em

Tom, Barry, Mike and Dustin – I so wished any or all of you  were at the store yesterday when I was researching these unbelievably fabulous vintage chairs!  There are no labels on any of the chairs – so maybe I’m completely crazy when you see what I’ve priced them – but they appear to be very similar in style to Eames molded plywood chairs and are certainly the right era.  Well built.  Fantastic green pleather (though there are some small rips and missing nail head trim).  I’ve priced all four of them for $895 – which puts them at just under $225 per chair.  If they ARE Eames chairs – that’s a steal.  If they AREN’T Eames chairs – then that too high.  Time will tell

another gorgeous retro piece – by Century – a buffet in excellent condition.  Priced $295

JFC 05-08-14 038JFC 05-08-14 039

very nice two piece sectional – cushions need some adjusting – no name though classic wonderful lines and only a few spots – priced $325

JFC 05-08-14 040JFC 05-08-14 041

amazing pine lift top writing desk for $175; Room & Board chair for $95

JFC 05-08-14 042JFC 05-08-14 043

lovely buffet by Davis (in Naperville) priced $195

JFC 05-08-14 044JFC 05-08-14 045

please come buy this magazine or sheet music rack before I do (Hello.  My name is Susan and I’m furniture hoarder).  Love the color!  Priced $40

JFC 05-08-14 046JFC 05-08-14 051JFC 05-08-14 048JFC 05-08-14 049JFC 05-08-14 047JFC 05-08-14 050

spring has finally sprung but these three pieces would offer flowers in your home all year long!  There’s a loveseat (needs to be spot cleaned) for $60; matching sofa (in excellent condition) for $145; and a matching unique wingback chair (love the curved back though it is a bit hard) for $65

JFC 05-08-14 055JFC 05-08-14 056JFC 05-08-14 057JFC 05-08-14 058JFC 05-08-14 052JFC 05-08-14 053JFC 05-08-14 054

These three pieces by Henkel-Harris are solid mahogany, gorgeous and in pristine condition.  I love the simple, understated hardware that allows the design of the piece and the beauty of the wood to be the main players.  Oh man.  The first photo is of the armoire which is priced $595; chest of drawers for $650; dresser (no mirror) for $650

JFC 05-08-14 059

sweet mosaic tile top side table for $60

this is another fantastic bedroom set – there’s a king-size headboard, footboard and side rails (note: where there’s a break on the metal scroll work and one of the knobs needs to be worked on to get it to fit back in the hole) priced $225; massive dresser with mirror for $325; two nightstands for $95 each

JFC 05-08-14 067JFC 05-08-14 068

and what a lovely place to end – with these amazing lamps (which I also super much want to buy).  Priced $30 each

Blessings and grace to you, dear reader!  Thanks for stopping by!
