What I Love Wednesdays

"You'll love it at Levitz"

I remembered this slogan for Levitz furniture store from when I was growing up in Miami, FL. It was one of two furniture major furniture stores in the area in the 70's.

A couple of years ago I was calling a borrower to set up a property inspection for a furniture warehouse building. His last name was Levitz. Yes, he was The Levitz.

This year I scheduled the inspection and called Mr. Levitz. He set it up with a guy at his warehouse and I went out there this morning. I was touring the property when the guy told me that Mr. Levitz was 96 years old and still drove himself to work every day (thankfully, he lives close by)! As I was leaving, Mr. Levitz was coming through the door. I don't know why, but I loved meeting him...I guess 'cause his commercial was catchy enough for me to remember all these years, and the fact that he's 96...same age as my Papa Sam.

I love furniture. I was happiest when The P.A.N. would agree to buy furniture for the house. It's actually a turn-on, and if it weren't gross, I'd gladly whore myself out for a corner entertainment unit.

It's Wednesday, what do you love?


  1. Holy hell that was funny! Although I have to say I feel the same way.
    About your comment.. Sorry about Laverne and Shirley. I can't stand that woman.

  2. I love furniture stores! My husband and I like to walk around them for fun just to look. We are weird like that.

  3. I am dreaming of a new couch. I'd whore myself out for one, but I don't really have too. I can just come home with one and say I REALLY needed it.

    Almost Hubs is smart enough not to argue with what makes mama happy. :)

    I love that I got a pedicure today. It's only been like, 9 months or so. :)

  4. LOL!!! I love furniture too. I also adore old bookstores. :)

  5. Sigh...I haven't had a pedicure in probably a year.

    I love to browse furniture stores as well.

    Melynda, don't be hating Boo Boo Kitty just cause Shirley is such a nut.

  6. I love it - whore yourself out for furniture. LMAO!! I remember Levitz too. We had one in Minnesota when I was growing up. I even remember the jingle. It is awesome that you got to meet The Man!
