Welcome students! I stopped in Oakland for lunch today (I think Oakland is the best neighborhood for lunch). Traffic, no parking signs, it all means that the students are moving in. Welcome to Pittsburgh. If you find yourself needing some furniture – look no further. The Oakland Planning & Development Corporation (OPDC) has got a great event for you. This weekend is their 2nd Annual furniture sale. I think this is a great idea, discounted furniture for students and a way to recycle all of the furniture that gets left behind each spring. It is a win-win idea. Plus it raises money to help with future plans for Oakland. Last year’s sale raise over $1000. From the pictures on their website it looks like they have tons of great stuff for dorm rooms and apartments.
