Hey NW DC & Montgomery County – here’s a great reason to clean out your garage!
Hi Forklift Fans! The warehouse is open today until 6pm. Please note: you must arrive before 5:30pm if you are picking up a big bulky item, or dropping off a donation.
(Be careful on your way here - the main roads seem pretty well plowed and salted, but the back streets in our little industrial area are still pretty slippery).
If you haven’t seen our latest newsletter, check out the March sales below – we’ve got some good ones for you this month!
|30% Off Windows, Sashes and ShuttersTake 30% off all windows, window sashes and shutters that are regularly priced $300 or less. Sale includes both surplus and salvaged items with orange tags, but does not include items with blue tags, vintage windows and sashes with wavy glass, stained glass, leaded glass, items from our consignment partners, or items with missing or damaged tags.

Congratulations to Forklift Fans Bree and Andy – their home has just been featured on the popular blog Apartment Therapy!
We’re proud to report that they used wood from Community Forklift to build shelves throughout their home. They also found their bathroom sinks here.
Go see the full House Tour over at Apartment Therapy. Their home is so colorful and beautiful, and features a lot of decor from local artists & secondhand sources.
Despite rumors to the contrary, spring is coming. It’s time to start planning your “outdoor” room!
We have over 20 pallets of salvaged brick for you to build the perfect patio or walkway with. Age and use has given these bricks character, and will give them a softer look in your landscape than new brick. They can be yours for just 30 cents each!
Think laying a patio is too difficult? This Old House rates the project “moderate” in difficulty. Check out their video!
