Barry sent us a tip to check out his favorite vintage source...he says that "Quiet, sleepy, little Carol Stream Illinois (a suburb of Chicago) is home to an amazing vintage, mid-century modern, retro and gently used furniture market so secret, that, well, I finally decided to put my greed aside to help them get the word out...."
"For months now on Saturdays only, Jubilee Furniture Company has opened it's doors at 9 am – the exact time I show up. For months I've had practically unfettered access to all this incredible and ever changing furniture and collectibles. A smorgasbord of vintage and retro items that sell for at or below garage sale prices.
I kid you not, I've found Vitra, Steelcase, Herman Miller, Weiland, Knoll, Kimball, d_SCAN, Haworth, AllSteel and a ton of older American and Danish lines there. I blogged about my Steelcase Warren Snodgrass 474419W Encore Series guest chairs that are in the Museum of Modern art a few weeks ago.
Each Saturday a new selection awaits at Jubilee."
We just heard that Sarah and Nicole are going to check out Jubilee this weekend for the first time...look for a full store post from Sarah with the low-down on AT: Chicago soon...and Happy Hunting, vintage shoppers!
Jubilee Furniture is located at 610 E. North Ave. in Carol Stream, 630.337.1467.
Thanks for the tip, Barry!
