You’re invited to the FunkYard Festival!

We’ve got a lot to celebrate right now:  our eBay win, a lot of recent press coverage, and National Reuse Day on Oct. 20th.  So, we’re throwing a party!

Bring your friends, your family, and your (friendly, leashed) pets to the Community Forklift warehouse for a celebration of all things reuse in the DC area.  We’re highlighting artistic, funky, and practical reuse while celebrating local history and preservation.
