Our Inventory

Community Forklift is a huge self-serve reuse warehouse.  We carry building materials from every era, as well as modern and vintage tools, hardware, lumber, architectural salvage and some furniture.  We also offer a number of items online in our Ebay and Etsy stores.

We receive thousands of items every week, and the materials fly out the door just as quickly!  We do not keep an inventory list, so you will need to visit in-person to see if a specific item is in stock.

If you have not been here recently, please check out our Store Policies & Info page to know what to expect, what to wear, and what to bring.

Below are examples of materials you might find here.
