The store was created as a means to further sustain the work and mission of NWFB, through the resale of selected new, gently used and vintage furniture and decor donations. Revenues generated from retail sales may then be used to purchase high demand items such as twin mattresses and small dressers most suitable for our furniture bank clients, resulting in greater efficiency of inventory management for the benefit of the families served by NWFB. A $100 purchase at Hope Furnishings makes it possible for NW Furniture Bank to buy a twin bed.
Our retail customers find great values offered on name brand floor samples, gently used and vintage furnishings, and leave with the knowledge they have helped others less fortunate through their purchase.
Hope Furnishings accepts Visa and Master Card, debit or credit and cash. Delivery is available to a limited service area for an additional fee.
You can preview dozens of items weekly by typing Hope Furnishings in the search field of the Craigslist furniture, and be sure to Like us on Facebook for special events and sales just for our fans!
