Oakland Used Furniture Sale – Friday & Saturday

A table set for two people.

I think this event is a great idea (we have blogged about it in the past too) because it is a great way for Pittsburgh to reuse and repurpose furniture and dorm things and a great way for new students to save some money fixing up their new Pittsburgh abodes!

If you are new in Pittsburgh – or looking for some new furniture – before you make the trip out to Ikea – stop the Oakland Planning and Development Corporations 4th Annual Used Furniture Sale this weekend.

4th Annual Used Furniture Sale

Friday August 28 10am-8pm
Saturday, August 29 10am-8pm
intersection of Atwood and Sennott Streets in Central Oakland

More info at OPDC.org

Furniture Sale in the news:

From the Post-Gazzette’s Walkabout Blog – Holey couches, Batman!

“We have lots of couches, a ton of chairs, a lot of desks, tables, some shelves, dressers, and a few lamps,” Kelly said.

This year, Pitt donated some dorm dinette sets, the Carnegie Library donated some furniture from the East Liberty branch, which is getting a facelift, and a landlord who furnishes his apartments has donated some nice couches, she said.

Ratty couches and ones with ugly patterns will go for $15-20. But just remember, don’t put them on the porch.

More on the sale at PopCity Media too.
