Do thoughts of the upcoming holiday shopping season give you the shivers? We get it. We hate Black Friday, too – the commercialism, the cost, the plastic, and the unhappy crowds. But we’ve got you covered! Come celebrate community with us instead:
Instead of buying plastic stuff online or fighting crowds at the big box stores, stop by the warehouse
to relax with friends and learn how to MAKE presents.
@the Community Forklift warehouse
4671 Tanglewood Drive, Edmonston, Maryland 20781 (5 minutes outside DC in the Hyattsville area)
Join us at our crafting stations to make your own presents from green materials!

Santa just loves DIY projects and he always makes sure to stop by the Forklift on Green Friday and Small Business Saturday to check in with all the little Forklift Fans!
Rachel, of Signs Wonders and Gifts, will be here both days to turn your faces into works of art.
Get a head start on your holiday shopping by browsing unique items handmade by local artisans.
We’re still finalizing the vendor schedule, but the following folks are already confirmed:
Pink Confetti is a home-based business which offers uniquely designed cakes for all occasions. Their elegant wedding cakes, customized cakes, cupcakes, cookies, dairy-free treats, and desserts are made from scratch by the owner and chef Nicole Williams, who passionately turns creative visions into a velvety-sweet reality. “We love to share our flair, creating the most delicious and visually appealing sweets.”
While you’re here, don’t miss our Christmas pop-up shop filled with everything you need to deck your halls!
On Friday through Sunday, almost everything in the warehouse will be 25% off.
