3 reasons to come to our party tonight: a storewide sale, appraisal advice, and an awesome band!



Hello Forklift Fans!  We promised you a flash sale that will start tonight during our Forklift First Friday party.  Well, here you go:

From 6pm Friday, November 4th

through 6pm Sunday, November 6th,

almost everything is 25% off!


The flash sale includes most blue-tag vintage items and orange-tag modern items throughout the warehouse and the courtyard.

(Pro tip:  arrive at least an hour before closing time to avoid the worst lines – especially on Sunday, the last day of the sale.)

 The sale does not apply to lumber, items with missing or damaged tags, select specialty items, online sales, gift cards, or items from our consignment partners.  May not be combined with other sales.

Remember to check out our great November Sales & Freebies too!



If you love Antiques Roadshow or American Pickers, we’ve got a treat for you!  Bring in something you’re curious about for our Appraisal Advice Fundraiser.  From 6pm – 8pm tonight during the party. the Forklift’s own Chris Melendez will offer advice about your antiques, including architectural salvage, ceramics, furniture, sterling silver, and vintage jewelry.
If you enjoy her advice, donations to Community Forklift are greatly appreciated.  It’s a great way to learn more about a vintage item you own, and help your favorite reuse warehouse grow.(In addition to financial donations, we will also be collecting donations of vintage & folk jewelry, and sterling silver hollow ware & flatware at this booth).

 **************************rusty-light-up-number-3LIVE MUSIC

We have an extra-special musical treat this week at November’s Forklift First Friday!  Oh He Dead is a smoky, folk-soul rock band from Washington, DC. Led by the stirringly passionate harmonies of Cynthia Johnson and Andrew Valenti, Oh He Dead mixes R&B influences with poignant lyrics to move both your soul and your feet.


 If you missed them at the 9:30 Club this summer, 

here’s your chance to catch them up close!!!

(Wondering how we got lucky enough to land such a popular band?  Turns out, like most of the amazing musicians who play here, they love cool old stuff, and want to support our mission to lift up local communities through reuse!)


As if all that wasn’t enough, we’ve got even more reasons for you to come by tonight’s Forklift First Friday party, including local artists, a food truck, cupcakes, and craft beer and wine.
