CJC@HOME: April 21-23, 2017
CJC@Home launched just over a year ago, as a unique way for our customers to see Carver Junk Company's furniture and decor in a real home setting. Seeing our refinished, antique and vintage furniture in the warehouse setting of our store locations can make it tough to envision them in an actual home. So, we partnered with local builders to bring our stuff into a new construction home, and CJC at HOME was born.
We're excited to announce our Spring 2017 CJC@HOME event, running April 21-23 in the South Metro! The housing market is hot right now [congrats to those of you selling homes!] so the exact location is subject to change up to two weeks before the event [in case one of our Builder's homes sells]. Tickets will be mailed one week before the event, and the exact address will be included on the tickets as well as posted online.
Our inspiration for Spring 2017 is Bohemian Farmhouse. An interesting mix, for sure, and we're excited to show you how to pull it off! The style includes a ton of textures, natural elements like greenery, wood tones, rattan, mixed metals and soft textiles. Antique rugs (turkish, oriental, etc) in bold colors will be featured, along with a mix of mid-century modern, industrial, and antique furniture.Take a peek at our Inspiration images from Pinterest, and follow us on Instagram at @cjcathome for photos of the actual items heading to the event! Tickets are available for purchase at http://www.cjcathome.com. We hope you'll join us!
Small Business Saturday is coming up this weekend! As a Small Business, we are so thankful that this has become a "thing." This year, we decided to share the love we receive this day, and donate a portion of our sales on November 26th to Sponsor A Family MN. Sponsor A Family MN is a non-denominational nonprofit organization that matches families in need with Sponsors who anonymously shop for them for the holidays. All "in need" families are pre-approved by qualified case managers, and truly need your help. Last year we sponsored a particular family that was homeless and whose children had never had a new pair of shoes. I cried a lot when I heard their story, and realized the things we take for granted. We sponsored each family member with a gift card to Famous Footwear, so they could choose their own new shoes. The thank you letter we received made the entire season for our team. This year, we're contributing to the Emergency Fund for SAFMN, which they have told us is critical to the program and provides for unmatched or late-added families. We'll provide grocery store gift cards that can be utilized for a variety of needs for these families. How can you participate? This year, we created a Holiday Gift Guide filled with locally handmade gift ideas. In purchasing these items in particular, you're supporting local families that create our beautiful inventory. In turn, we're donating 10% of all sales from the Gift Guide items on November 26th to Sponsor A Family MN. Shop at either Carver Junk Company location on Small Business Saturday, and 10% of the sales from our Holiday Gift Guide items will be donated to Sponsor a Family MN. We've created "events" on Facebook for each store. RSVP to see photos of some of the items we'll have in stock this Saturday! Gifts, decor, furniture and more.
