Own a Piece of Hyattsville History: Franklin’s Booths!

Franklins mural

We are excited to share with our Forklift Fans that one of our favorite Hyattsville hangouts, Franklin’s Restaurant and Brewery, is redecorating and donating their restaurant fixtures and furniture to us! We currently have benches from the booths for sale. They are priced at $125 each. They measure 28″ long, 41.5″ tall and 22″ deep. They would be great along a dining room wall, in an entry way, or for making a breakfast nook.

Recall fond memories of eating at Franklin’s and sipping on their tasty brews, right in your own home.  And you can feel good about the fact that your purchase supports Community Forklift’s work to lift up local communities!

Just arrived! New Line of Recycled Paints

Amazon paint


Greetings, Forklift Fans!

We are thrilled to share a new product that we have just put on our shelves in the past few days – recycled paint from Amazon Environmental, Inc.! Amazon Select latex paints are manufactured from quality surplus paint that has been rescued from the waste-stream. These paints meet three of the goals of Community Forklift:  keeping reusable material out of landfills, promoting environmentally-friendly building materials, and making home repairs more affordable to our community members. Amazon Select paints meet strict specifications for color, gloss, viscosity and coverage and are priced well below “virgin” paint from national brands.

We are carrying 16 different colors and primer of Amazon Select. All colors are available in one-gallon containers, with prices starting at $16, and several of the most popular colors are available in five-gallon containers, with prices starting at $56.75. (Primer starts at $56.00 for a five-gallon container.) All colors come in a flat finish and Whipped White and Ivory White come in both flat and eggshell.

This Just In: Many Pallets of Carpet Tile!

2014 - 09 - 18 new-carpet-tiles compressed

Greetings Forklift Fans!

We’ve just received a lot of new carpet tiles in a variety of colors and styles. They are very nice, commercial quality tiles.  Most of the tiles are 24″ x 24″ and are $3 per tile, and there are also some 18″ x 18″ tiles for just $1.69 each. They are great for basements, playrooms, offices, or high traffic areas. Buy some extra tiles so if something gets stained, you can just swap it out for a new piece (Or does that only happen at our houses?)

Hope to see you at the warehouse soon!


The last time we received pallets of carpet tile, Forklift Fan Kinch C. snapped up a bunch for her Florida room.  See below – don’t they look great?
