Bare walls have plenty of advantages: ample surface area for finger painting, an absence of disapproving Churchill posters, and no mirrors reminding you that your hair is on fire. Fill rooms' middles with furnishings so you can keep walls clear with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get $150 worth of furniture at "Hoot" Judkins, with locations in Millbrae and Redwood City. This Groupon can also be used on clearance items.
"Hoot" Judkins furnishes homes with bed frames and bookcases built from eco-friendly materials and real wood. Thanks to regular gym visits, the store carries 2,000 room-adorning items, and each is rated according to its environmental congeniality. Proudly display the HD spoils of Black Friday pillaging on an oak television entertainment stand ($209.77), or leave a low carbon body-print in Earth's mattress with a solid parawood bed frame in espresso ($199.88). A four-shelf oak mission bookcase ($199.77) provides ample space to store all your secret passageway triggers, and the solid-pine bunk bed ($449.88) allows you to easily stack college roommates or spare children.
"Hoot" Judkins' salespeople don't work on commission, so they don’t use peer pressure to get customers to buy or take part in milk-chugging competitions. Most items are in stock and ready to take home the day of purchase. The family-owned store focuses on families of shoppers; balloons lift children from the doldrums of the sales floor to the party on the ceiling, and the Redwood City location has a playhouse for youngsters mature enough to obey gravity.
