Used Furniture ...driven by African self-determination

General Info
Uhuru Furniture is project of the African People's Education and Defense Fund (APEDF), a 501c(3) non-profit black community led organization. APEDF develops and institutionalizes programs to defend the human and civil rights of the African community, and to address the grave disparities in education, health, healthcare, and economic development faced by the black community. APEDF funds an Uhuru (Freedom) House Community Center in East Oakland and St. Petersburg Fla. to organize around the issues that the African community is confronted with. The Akwaaba Halls are housed at both Uhuru Houses and are available to the community for receptions, funerals and other events for very reasonable rates. Also in Florida there is the TyRon Lewis community gym with aerobics classes, wellness seminars and the Kids Fit Camp plus the Uhuru Jiko commercial community kitchen. APEDF also sponsors many educational programs as well as campaigns for economic development, including health fairs and flea markets.

There's no better place to find absolutely everything. Low prices, great staff and it is an economic development project of apedf.org. I love this place.

Powerful!

One of a kind experience. A must visit, must donate, must volunteer, must get involved, must shop, must take social responsibility type of business. Powerful!

This Is My #1 Choice

This is my #1 choice of where to buy furniture (even if I don't "need" it.) The selection is great and the prices are phenomenal and the people are outstanding.

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!

The People Are Great

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.

It Will Be A Spiritual Experience!

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!

With today's economy, you owe it to yourself to see what Uhuru is all about, save lots of money, and help humanity.

I Find Something Interesting

Almost everytime I stop by Uhuru I find something interesting to buy. Sometimes staff people are too busy to help me right away. I bought a large stuffed chair and ottoman at a great price which I enjoy every day.

Once I bought a platform bed and I didn't check it out very carefully. It worked for about one year and then fell apart. But for the price it was still a bargain.

I especially like the way in which knowledgable workers in the store put their heads together and decide on prices.

Every time I come in I find a surprise and end up taking something home with me. Even when I do not find what I have come for it is always a serendipitous experience as the unexpected is always waiting for me.
