Nonprofit reuse warehouse for home improvement & architectural salvage. Reducing waste, creating green jobs, lifting up communities in the DC region!
Happy spring! If you're cleaning up your shed and yard in celebration of the warm weather, please consider donating any spare gently-used tools and outdoor furniture to the 'Lift! As you can see in the second pic, we've built up a large stash of garden goodies, but we're still low on furniture. All donated materials will be sold at the Garden Party on April 6th to support our nonprofit program! See our website for details. #forkliftbehindthescenes #forkliftgardenparty #dcnonprofit #shopsustainable

More photos of #locallysalvaged decor, furniture, and building materials at the ‘Lift. #Forkliftfinds #vintagestyle #thingstodoindc #visitmaryland #pgcounty #shopsecondhandfirst Please note: because we’re having a storewide sale this weekend, the coolest stuff goes fast - so we can’t guarantee that all items pictured are still here. Our hardworking #ReuseAssociates will be too busy at the checkout to track items down if you call - so your best bet is to just come visit! (We’re open 9am - 7pm on Saturday and Sunday. Your purchases and donations support our work to create #greenjobs and career opportunities for #returningcitizens and others with barriers to employment)

We've been contacted by a reporter for a national publication who wants to interview homeowners, DIYers, amateurs, and hobbyists. Please get in touch ASAP if you've bought our lumber or reclaimed planks to use in a project or in your home - just DM us, or email Ruthie at CommunityForklift dot org. Please send us your name, phone number, email, and a few pics or a description of what you have done or are planning to do with the lumber. We will so grateful to hear from you - this could help our nonprofit get some great publicity!! (P.S. to professional woodworkers, designers, craftspeople, and small business owners: Even if you are not an amateur, please get in touch! We'd love to get you some publicity from another reporter in the future). #customercreations #Forkliftfinds #upcycling #acreativeDC #makersofmaryland #founditatForklift #repurposed #reclaimedwood #gorgeousgrain #recyclinghouses #cjlammers @artifiedjunkrescue @reclaimedbyyou
