Green Gifts!

 For your favorite Forklift Fan

Do you know someone who would love a Community Forklift gift card?  You can order one online or pick up one in the store.  How about a t-shirt?  By Green Friday, we’ll be fully stocked with small through 3x (in both mens and womens sizes), so come on by.

We have t-shirts at the front desk for $10 each, available in two colors: gray with green letters, and cobalt with gray letters. We carry sizes for men and women from small to 3X.

We also have a ton of local artists exhibiting during the party:
