This weekend, August 19th & 20th, 2017

Take 40% off kitchen cabinets

We have over 30 kitchen sets in stock right now, so there is a great selection to choose from!  In addition to cabinet sets, the sale includes individual cabinets, cabinet doors, and cabinet drawers.

Whether you want to update your kitchen or take it back in time, we’ve got cabinets to tempt you!

This sale does not include select specialty items, items with missing or damaged price tags, living room furniture pieces, stand-alone pieces, vanity & sink sets, medicine cabinets, workbenches or tool stands, items from our consignment vendors, or items listed online. This sale may not be combined with other offers.

Get inspired by this gorgeous kitchen at RowhouseRefuge.com, built with cabinets from the Forklift.  Like the beautiful countertops?  Those came from our warehouse too – they’re made from Treincarnation boards!

Perhaps you don’t need a cabinet, but you could use some hardware to fix up your existing cabinetry… Remember, we’ve got a lot of hardware and unique items online in our eBay and Etsy stores!  All proceeds support our work to lift up DC-area communities through reuse.

The warehouse is full of great stuff and we’re short on storage space.  If you need time to arrange for pickup, don’t worry – we still offer 7 days of free storage after you purchase bulky items (except lumber and masonry).  However, it would be great if you don’t need the storage, and can take your purchases right away!

So much new stuff at the warehouse – and furniture is 40% off!

Posted by on Jul 26, 2017 in Antiques & Vintage, Blog, Flash Sale, Flash Sale, Just arrived, Sales, Things for Sale | 0 comments

We have been flooded with donations of furniture recently, including dining tables, end tables, desks, chairs, bookshelves, stereo cabinets, entertainment centers, dressers, night stands, file cabinets, bed frames, and head boards.  So there is a great selection of unique pieces right now… AND you still have one day left to save 40% during our furniture flash sale!

Below is just a taste of what’s in store for you… but keep in mind that furniture goes VERY quickly during our flash sales.  It actually made it difficult to finish this post – our awesome intern kept going into the warehouse to take pictures, but by the time she got back to her computer to upload them, some of the items would sell and more would take their place.  So, if something catches your eye, come in right away!

Please note:  We are unable to hold items, or to make sales over the phone.

Desks


Both of the well-built vintage wood desks above are $45, but during the sale they are just $27 each.

This great slant-front secretary desk is marked at $249, but it’s yours for only $149.40 during the flash sale.

 

Dining Tables

This great midcentury dining set is $495, so it’s just $297 during the sale.

This cute vintage gray & chrome kitchen set is normally $195, but today it’s just $117.

Originally $175, but with 40% off, you can get the lovely dining table above for $105.

This blonde wood set was originally $150, but is just $90 during the sale.

This “ghost” table originally cost thousands of dollars.  Our price is $450, but during the sale you will pay just $270.

(Note – there is some chipping on two of the beveled corners.  A local glass shop said it might cost about about $160 to fix it).  

 

Dressers

This beautiful brakefront is $589, so it’s just $353.40 during the sale.  The woodgrain is really striking on this one!

The $65 dresser above needs a little polishing or paint – but it’s well worth it at just $39 during the sale!

This sumptuous flame mahogany dresser is $750, but it’s $450 during the furniture sale.

 

Blue Leather Sofa Set

This blue sofa is normally $125, but with 40% off it’s now only $75!

The chair is priced at $115, but with 40% off it’s now $69.

These photos were all taken by Blazion, our talented 2017 Summer Port Towns Youth Intern, and her assistant T.  Hope you enjoyed them!

We’ll see you soon…
