Located in Oakland’s Grand-Lake commercial district, urban furniture is a second hand furniture store that sells quality used furniture while serving as a platform to provide education and on-the-job training to low-income single moms in Oakland.On any given business day, our moms experience learning and confidence in real time.  Learning occurs as a mom counts money and calculates percentages to negotiate discounts.  Advanced learning occurs as a mom manages store inventory, accrues donation items and completes administrative tasks.Empowerment occurs as a mom communicates to customers, identifies their needs, directs them to a product and completes a sale.  Empowerment also occurs as a mom undergoes individual self-esteem coaching.  These realities are what we mean when we say urban furniture is ‘more than a furniture store.’  Come visit our store at 3241 Grand Ave, Oakland, CA 94610.
