Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles: Great Furniture for Cheap

If your current funds land you somewhere between dumpster diving and IKEA “some assembly required,” we have the answer to your prayers – Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles on Spruce Street. How would you like a 1920s deco armoire for 90 bucks, a dining table with wood inlay for $60, or a set of retro club chairs for mere pennies?! (That’s what I thought!) Uhuru always has new pieces coming in (so keep checking their website!) – it’s one of those places where one man’s trash (perhaps with a little imagination, spray paint, and panache) can truly become a Philly trendsetter’s treasure.

What New York City stores would charge 10 times the price for, you can get here for cheap. And, yes, cheap is the name of the game at Uhuru, but that doesn’t mean lacking quality. You can easily find well-made pieces here with tell-tale embellishments like dovetailed joints, flathead nail detailing, or original cane rush seats! (If all that jargon means nothing to you, trust me, it’s a good thing.) So, how does Uhuru find these one-of-a-kind pieces? By “shopping” the Sheriff sales and attics of old Philadelphia money – and then passing those deals along to you for dirt cheap.

Browse the stacks of furniture as you peruse for your next mid-century modern coffee table, and don’t be afraid to chat up the friendly sales staff who all offer service with a smile, and are never too pushy. Not only can you furnish most of your apartment for less than it would cost to enjoy a dinner at Le Bec Fin, but Uhuru also offers reasonably priced, same-day delivery. You may have to be patient, and visit a few times before you find all your perfect pieces, but if you’re diligent, and enjoy bargain hunting, this is the place to go.

Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles is open Tuesday through Sunday, 11:30am to 7pm. To check out their latest merchandise before you go, visit their website at www.UhuruFurniturePhilly.blogspot.com.
