50% off Ceiling Fans

Gently-used ceiling fans are half off this month while supplies last.  

We have a variety of fans:  with and without lights; interior and exterior; and modern, industrial, and classic styles.  When it starts warming up in late spring, demand goes up and you won’t find many of these at the Forklift.  Don’t get stuck paying (gasp!) full price at the big-box store.  Get a bargain now so you’re ready when the time comes.

50% Off Vanities from Hotel Palomar

Previously priced at $185 – $225, they are now just $92.50 to $112.50 while supplies last!

The Hotel Palomar is renovating.  This stylish boutique hotel in downtown DC is part of the Kimpton chain, which is committed to eco-friendly practices.  To reduce waste during the renovation process, they’re donating and recycling a lot of the materials that are being removed.

So, they’ve donated a ton of beautiful bathroom vanities to the Forklift!   The granite tops and vessel sinks are stylish and easy to clean, and the substantial wood shelf below provides attractive, roomy storage.

The ones we have received range from 42 to 72 inches wide.  All of the vanities are 30 inches tall, and the sinks are 19.5 inches wide and 17.5 inches deep.  A few of them have faucets attached, too.
