Good news, Forklift Fans – last week we restocked our entire supply of Amazon Paint! For those who are unfamiliar, Amazon Paint is made from leftover water-based paints, and meets the same specifications as high quality virgin paint.
Amazon Paint is good for both interior and exterior use.
Community Forklift carries the complete Amazon Select Color Palette, as well as a primer, in 1 gallon and 5 gallon buckets. Supplies are limited as we only place orders twice per year, so don’t wait too long to pick yours up!
The full color palette includes the following shades: Ice Blue, Autumn Mist, Merlot Red, Vintage Buff, Ivory White, Whipped White, Desert Beige, Chocolate Brown, Forest Green, Garden Sage, Mars Clay, Oak Moss, Swiss Almond, Island Sand, Tawny Beige, Stony Gray, Mocha, Slate, Sea Foam, and Safari Tan.
Did you miss the Saturday fun?
Never fear – the Garden Party is a two-day affair this year!
enjoy landscaping and garden supplies; antiques advice, pallet-upcycling, activities for kids; and sweet treats.
Although the Saturday crowds put a dent in our stock of pre-loved garden tools, we still have some great bargains for you to check out! While supplies last, we have hand tools, decor, patio furniture, lawn mowers, and more. (Your purchases will support our work to create green jobs, reduce waste, educate the public about reuse, and provide free supplies to nonprofits & neighbors in need.)
There will be prizes for people and pets dressed in garden party finery.
So find yourself a dapper suit or fancy hat, and check out all the activities in store for you from 11am – 3pm:
Throughout the month of April, take 40% off vintage and modern windows, screens and sashes. This sale does not include transom windows, specialty glass panes, leaded or stained glass, mirrors or doors.
This month, take 40% off wood trim including pine, oak and hardwood modern and vintage trim. This sale does not include dimensional lumber, composite trim, shelf boards, flooring, paneling, columns, gingerbread, rosettes, plinth blocks and other specialty shapes.
Until April 30th, take 40% off stair parts including wood balusters, handrails, newel posts and stair treads. This sale does not include complete staircases, circular staircases, attic stair kits or metal stair parts.
This Saturday and Sunday (March 25-26, 2017), take 30% off all tile, including ceramic, porcelain, and slate tile. We don’t have tile sales very often, so hurry in and take advantage of this bargain!
Please note: Some exclusions apply. Sale does not include loose (unbundled) tile; boxes and bundles that have been ripped open; select specialty items; carpet tile, wood parquet flooring, or other types of flooring; or bundles with missing or damaged price tags. Flash sales do not include white tag items, items from our consignment partners, or online items. May not be combined with other sales.
As always, we’ve got a lot of fun stuff here in the warehouse. Here are a few examples:
Marble-top tables from Pizzeria Paradiso in Georgetown. We have three sizes – 2’x4′ ($95), 4’x4′ ($105), and 4’x6′ ($125).
Do you know any couples who met there? This would make an awesome gift!
We’ve received stacks and stacks of reclaimed plywood, too. These 4’x8′ Sheets range from $6-8, depending on the thickness. It’s going fast though, so hurry over.
Our truck team also picked up some beautiful bathroom vanities with marble counter tops this week.
Double sink vanity – $350
White/cream vanity – $225
Black/brown vanity – $295
And for all you Upcyclers out there, we’ve got a potential fixer-upper with your name on it! A beautiful old piano with ivory keys was donated to us. Due to the cruel and unsustainable nature of ivory trade, we removed the keys and sent them to U.S. Fish and Wildlife service, which has set up a repository to get all ivory out of circulation.
What we’re left with is a key-less piano which, according to Pinterest, can be turned into a desk, a bar, a sideboard, and much more. If you are brave enough to tackle this upcycling project, make sure to share your pictures with us!
This Wednesday and Thursday, March 22-23, 2017, take 30% off all kitchen and bathroom cabinets. This includes cabinet sets, orphan cabinets, and bathroom vanities with and without attached sinks.

Our R&P team has been hauling truck after truck of reclaimed lumber all week long – now it’s all stacked up for you and ready to go. Happy lifting!
If you’re here this weekend, please note that the storewide sale does not apply to lumber. But still, can anyone beat our prices?
And while you’re here, have a look at the office chairs that we picked up from a hotel this week. They’re like new and priced at $35 each. And these ARE included in the 25% sale.
