Visit Community Forklift this Saturday & Sunday, July 14 & 15, 2018 for:

Courtyard Clearance

50% off!

Take 50% off blue and orange price tags of courtyard items, including cast iron sinks, vintage and clawfoot bathtubs, granite & marble counters, wrought iron, security doors, window bars, and
everything else in our courtyard.

Masonry, bricks, and outdoor lumber rarely go on sale – but yes, they’re included in the Courtyard Clearance!

Please note: The sale does not include ANY items inside the store, select specialty items, items from our consignment partners, or items listed online. Flash sales may not be combined with other sales or promotions. Items with missing or damaged price tags will not be sold.

Hot Items:

Foam board insulation

We just got a huge donation of surplus foam board insulation! We have a truckload of 4′ x 8′ sheets stacked on racks near the lumber and other sheet goods. The insulation isn’t included in the weekend flash sale, but we’re still expecting it to fly off the shelves, because surplus materials in such large quantities are a rare treat. Come in and get it while it’s still here!

Cafe Tables

The 201 Bar in Capitol Heights has sadly closed, but they were kind enough to donate some of their furniture. We have 15 cafe tables for $45 each, and 32 chairs for $15 each. Everything is in great shape and ready for a new home!
