Local Resources

Many VISTAs move from across the country with as much as they can fit in the back of their car—which usually isn't much. The Capital District is full of resources, you just have to know what they are. Below is a list to help you get started!

Furniture and Appliances:

  • American Freight
  • Bob's Discount Furniture
  • The Capital Region Furniture Bank
  • Craigslist
  • Facebook Marketplace
  • Habitat ReStore


  • LA 7
  • Goodwill
  • Plato's Closet
  • Poshmark

Miscellaneous Resources: 

  • The Albany Public Library
  • The Electric City Barn Classes

Tip: Buy second-hand items and only buy what you need!
