Aven’s always has a better furniture sale because it’s Better Furniture!

661.942.1103

With a 70 plus year history of selling and servicing Antelope Valley’s best furniture and accessories, you could say that we have a passion for beautiful finishes, the smell and feel of great genuine leather, and the way a room can come together with stunning fabrics and accessories.

Aven’s and La-Z-Boy have been a team since 1986. Wow…25 years. That’s a lot of La-Z-Boy. I would estimate about 26,000 units of La-Z-Boy products have moved in and out of our warehouse.

Since the beginning we have worked to always hit price levels that people like the most. The magic numbers for recliners are $299, $399, and if its a great chair $499. We struggled to hit these prices way back in 1986; and somehow we still hit them today…Over 25 years later.

What other industry can you say that about? Hot price points held stable for 25 plus years!

I can’t think of any.

Every time I need to buy recliners for inventory I start with those hot buys. Do we have enough $299 and $399 recliners. Lately it looks like $299 may actually disappear. But $399 is safe for now.

I always exclude “Hot Buys” for any additional discounts in any promotion. They aren’t subject to “No Sales Tax” or “take an extra percentage off” promotions.

There is nothing worse than saying no to a customer. I just try to explain that a $299 or $399 Hot Buy recliner was a great buy in 1986 and it’s a great buy in 2011. Sorry.

Hot Buys as a category have grown now to include nearly every type of La-Z-Boy product:



   Anderson Hot Buy Recliner $299

Laurel Hot Buy La-Z-Boy Sofa $799
Laurel Club Chair $639, ottoman $369

Motion Sectionals. Dozens of cover choices at this price!

Devon Motion Sectional $2633 as shown!

Carlyle Designers Choice Hot Buy Recliner $799 in a great selection…

All Hot Buys feature selected frame styles in selected fabrics at great prices!

We keep a huge inventory of Hot Buys so you can have it right now. If you pick a hot buy cover we don’t have in stock…delivery on special orders is about 4 weeks on recliners and 6 to 8 weeks on stationary, and motion sectionals.

Thanks for reading!

Springtacular with Disabled Sports Easter Sierra (DSES) April 2011


After the Star Spangled Banner and a few words of encouragement from director Kathy Copeland, all the special athletes start towards the snow. When they first get on skis some are barely able to stand up; then with the help of one… or several volunteers, they are soon feeling the wind in their faces and the terrain flow under their skis.

Brian has been skiing since he was 8. He was on a 30 foot fenced in area with almost no slope for only the first few hours of the first day. He was so insistent on being allowed to ride the chair lift that he conned a Mammoth Mountain Ski Instructor to take him on the chair.

We rigged up an elastic brace that kept his ski tip together and he went right down the hill. When he would fall we would just grab the back of his jacket and stand him back up again. We found out early on that he had no injury at all to his sence of balance.

Imag0043

Flash forward to 2011 and Brian is 25 years old and weighs in at 170 and is 5’10” tall. He remains non-verbal although there should be no doubt that he communicates his every desire and need in his own way, but in a way that you are sure to grasp, even if you are meeting him for the first time. He still likes to ride on the chair lift. He still like to play with boxes. He still like to play with balloons.

And…Brian can ski.

Now we fasten his ski tips together with a special ski brace made of stainless steel. We control his decent speed with tethers clipped to the ski tips. We stear him down the hill. Brian has been on the same two runs for the past 17 years. The big smile on his face tells us he he likes it!

Over the years some of our families best friends have come from this event. Some are employees of Mammoth Mountain and some are volunteers with Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra. I cannot tell you how good it feels to think of you all as friends. Every year we greet each other with hugs on the first day. Wondering what new achievement we will witness on the snow this year. Every year we end the 4 day event with more hugs, sorry the event is over, and that it will be another year before we have a chance to see it happen again.

There is never any doubt as we leave the Mountain that we were part of a life changing experience for the Special Athletes…and for ourselves.

The Right People…Key to Aven’s 75 year history!

http://www.avensfurniture.com

There are dozens of people that go into the success of any small business.

There are probably no more than 10 that have been the key to this small business success since 1937.

There is only 1 that has proved to be completely indispensable to our survival.

Is that person me??      Nope…not even a close 10th.

That person is Bud Kelly.

It will no doubt shock the reading public to learn that everything you buy does NOT come out of the box just like a new cell phone or Flat Panel TV. That is to say…perfect, pristine, and ready for use.

Furniture comes out of the box in varying condition. Every piece we un-carton requires at least the touch up of packing rubs, leveling of doors, and general cleaning. When I see furniture delivery trucks in my neighborhood (imagine the shock) un-cartoning goods in the consumers driveway, it always makes me wonder how ignorant of consumer expectations those dealers could possibly be.

I actually think those dealers are idiots…is that too harsh??

Bud Kelly worked with Kelly Johnson of Lockheed SR-71 fame. Yep. He is that good. He solves problems…period.

He can make products better than the factory did in the first place.

You are probably wondering if you have received any of his repaired furniture over the years. Hopefully you have. If Bud Kelly worked on it, he improved it.

Consumers have amazed me over the years. The slightest imperfection…real or imagined…leads to this statement, “I want a new one, I didn’t pay for repaired furniture”.

The truth is that regardless of price…the next “new one” we order for you will have it’s own set of issues.

Furniture is made of wood and wood products. It grows from the ground. It is all imperfect!

Bud Kelly makes the imperfect…perfect!

Regardless of the problem…nothing goes back to a furniture factory. Stores all over America have failed over the past few years for a variety of reasons. One of the main reasons is that they die of ordering more and more goods to replace imperfect goods un-cartoned in a consumers driveway.

They don’t have Bud Kelly.

I do.

Thanks for a career Bud. We all love you.

Love,

Bob

26th Anual Juried Art Exhibition hosted by Aven’s Furniture


26th Anual Juried Art Exhibition hosted by Aven’s Furniture

26th Anual Juried Art Exhibition hosted by Aven’s Furniture

This year’s juried exhibition will differ than those of previous years. Titled look here., the exhibition will turn The BLVD into a temporary museum. Through collaborations between LMAG, BLVD businesses and participating artists, the exhibition explores the idea that virtually any place can be designated a museum and recognized as aesthetically or historically valuable. Selected artworks will be publicly displayed in and around BLVD businesses, each with identifying signage and labels indicating that they are part of look here. The BLVD itself will be transformed into a connecting gallery through highly recognizable displays and way finding.

Plan to join us Friday February 4th from 5 to 9pm for finger food, wine and cheese.

Welcome to Aven’s Furniture AV’s BEST

661.942.1103

 

Welcome to Aven’s Furniture

Passion for what we do

With a 70 plus year history of selling and servicing Antelope Valley’s best furniture and accessories, you could say that we have a passion for beautiful finishes, the smell and feel of great genuine leather, and the way a room can come together with stunning fabrics and accessories.

We Choose to Carry Quality Products

During several national and local recessions throughout Southern California, we have found there are always consumers who would rather buy better quality products. Just like everything else you buy, the old saying ‘You Get What You Pay For‘ also holds true for furniture. At Aven’s, you’ll always find products that are higher quality, better styled, better scaled, better engineered … and yes, I’m actually going to say it … more expensive home furnishings and accessories.

 

Always Our Best Price

Now that I’m out in the open about the whole price/quality relationship, know this: we realize we must be very competitive in our pricing to survive in the shopping intense world of high-end home furnishings. We know you want the best price possible for everything you buy. Especially a high-dollar purchase like quality furniture for your home.

When you go shopping for furniture, keep this in mind. Who has the better ability to give you the best deal – a big box retailer with high rent, a high TV budget, a high operating overhead with hundreds of employees – or Aven’s? The answer is always Aven’s. We run a very lean and efficient business. Heck! We’ve even been in the exact same location in Lancaster, California since 1958.

If you find a lower price on anything we carry, let us know. I guarantee we can at least match it. I’ll also bet that our local Lancaster, California delivery charge of $40 is a whole heck of a lot lower than you’ve been quoted any where else!

In Home No Cost Design Service

If you talk about furniture with any of your neighbors in Southern California, I’ll bet they or someone they know has had a room designed by one of our experienced staff … because we’ve been designing beautiful rooms in the Antelope Valley since at least 1970. Let us help you! Our design help is free – you only pay for any product you purchase. What could be simpler?
