First, kick off your Labor Day weekend by meeting friends for some honky-tonk at the Forklift First Friday party.
Then, throughout the weekend at the first “Birth-A-Versary” celebration for Tanglewood Works, there will be a ton of FREE DEMOS, discounts on upcycled housewares, a “Salvager Hunt,” and more!
Hi Forklift Fans – are there days when you’d like to hunt for treasure, and help your favorite reuse center lift up local communities… but you just don’t feel like going out in the heat? Well, remember that you can shop online too! Proceeds from your online purchases help Community Forklift to continue creating good green jobs, reducing waste, and providing support to neighbors in need.
There are 151 items in our Ebay store this week!
Did you know that August 17th is National Thrift Store Day?
That means it’s a great day to thank you for all of your support!!
Your purchases, donations, and volunteer hours have really helped to lift up DC-area communities over the years. Together, we’ve created 40 green jobs, provided free supplies to hundreds of nonprofits and neighbors in need, made repairs more affordable for nearby homeowners and small businesses, and reduced pollution and carbon emissions.
Come join us at the Grand Ole ‘Lift for this season’s last Forklift First Friday!
September’s First Friday will be featuring tear-in-your beer, classic Honky-Tonk band, Rodeo Motel! Who’ll take you back to the heyday of classic country with their specialized duet harmonies and their fiddle and pedal steel-driven sounds that harken back to the 50s and 60s, when stars like George Jones, Kitty Wells, and Webb Pierce were making history on the Grand Ole Opry.
