Shop green, shop small, or don’t shop at all –
Community Forklift gives you an excuse to stay away from the mall!
Instead of fighting crowds to buy presents after Thanksgiving, come by our warehouse to relax with friends and make presents. We’ll have live entertainment, a salvage sale, local artists, delicious food, and free photos with Santa for all ages. It’s FREE for the whole family. (Of course, you are welcome to bring cash so you can patronize the locally-owned businesses, tip the entertainers, and support your favorite reuse nonprofit!)

Join us at our crafting stations on both days to make your own presents from green materials!
Santa loves DIY projects, and he’ll be here from 11am-2pm on Friday & Saturday to say hello to all the Forklift Fans!
Do you know someone who would love a Community Forklift gift card? You can order one online or pick up one in the store.
We’ll be announcing the details of the sale just before Green Friday, so subscribe to our blog to get the details.
Rachel of Signs Wonders and Gifts will be here both days to turn your face into a work 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, so check back soon for more info!
