I enjoy shopping at Uhuru. The staff is friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable and the proceeds go to an excellent cause. Plus there is a wide variety of unique and charming used furniture. I recommend you shop Uhuru first!
I have bought many furniture items from Uhuru. A group of friends and I visits the store almost every Friday afternoon before going to dinner. The people are great, helpful, funny. It's always a pleasure whether we buy something or not.
Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles is one of a few places left where your can find outstanding well-made gently used furniture for a great price. I have purchased everything from French himoges chinz to pottery barn rugs for a song. The staff is wonderful and the cause even more wonderful. Be sure to buy a vegan blackberry pie at their annual pie drive. It will be a spiritual experience! <br>With today's economy, you owe it to yourself to see what Uhuru is all about, save lots of money, and help humanity.
