Love where you live but want to change up the look of your place? You don’t need to be rolling in money to be rolling in style these days — especially when you can buy second-hand furniture and housewares all over Philadelphia. From browsing the third floor furniture wonderland at Philly Aids Thrift to scoring sweet vintage furniture finds on the Jinxed Instagram page, you can have a Pinterest-worthy pad while still saving money.
Rejuvenated Furniture and Finds
7430 Frankford Ave.
Founded in 2003, Rejuvenated Furniture and Finds “upcycles” vintage furniture, giving it new life through a refurbishing process. Need a china cabinet for your dining room? A cozy country desk for your study? A conversation-starting coffee table? Go here and get it for a bargain.
1331 Frankford Ave.
1050 N. Hancock St.
1835 E. Passyunk Ave.
4521 Baltimore Ave.
With locations all around the city, Jinxed is bursting at the seams with second-hand finds of all kinds, including furniture. While scoping things out in person is always ideal, not everyone has the time to hop from store to store in their search, which is why the Instagram account for Jinxed is so helpful. Whenever they have super cool pieces of furniture, they post them for sale there first — so you can easily shop while you’re waiting in line for coffee or from the comfort of your bed on a rainy weekend morning.
Philly Aids Thrift
710 S. 5th St.
On this particular stop on your furniture expedition, proceed directly to the third floor, where all of the furniture is located. From sofas to dining room tables to paintings to ornate wall mirrors, the stock is constantly changing depending upon donations. What’s more, proceeds from sales at Philly Aids Thrift get distributed to HIV/AIDS organizations in Philadelphia. Shopping here is a win-win-win for all involved.
UHURU Furniture and Collectibles
832 N. Broad St.
In business for over 20 years, UHURU Furniture and Collectibles donates 100% of their profits to African People’s Education and Defense Fund. Find everything from sofas to tables to chairs to desks to paintings. If you want to take advantage of their Back to School Sale, you have until Sept. 30 to get 10% off your total purchase if you spend $100 or more. Bought a lot of stuff and don’t have enough space? They’ll even pick up your furniture donations for free.
Habitat for Humanity ReStore
2318 Washington Ave.
Another thrift shop with a charity component, purchases made at Habitat for Humanity ReStore help low income Philadelphia families become homeowners. From leather armchairs to chaise lounges to even office water coolers, you never know what you’ll find here.
