SAVE THE DATE: Ahoy Mateys!
Community Forklift's Pirate Parrrty is
Every day of the year, there are treasures to be found at the DC area's largest thrift store for home improvement supplies - but during the Pirate Party, there will also be special discounts throughout the warehouse, FREE do-it-yourself workshops, activities for kids, live music, food, and raffle prizes!
Presented by Mark & Dona Baker (Fireflies Studio)
Learn how to take discarded vintage materials (like doors or tiles) and repurpose them into one-of-a-kind functional art! We'll cover basic restoration techniques and how to create benches and mosaics from found materials.
Presented by Eric Whitesell (ChemStrip)
Learn to strip items at home safely and effectively. Learn some household items that can be used along with what strippers or products that can be purchased locally.
Presented by Sue Older-Mondeel (Shabadaba Chic)
Have you ever seen an image online, at a paper store, wrapping paper or even a family photograph that you wanted to imprint onto another surface? Sue of Shabadaba Chic will teach you various methods you can use to transfer images onto ceramics, wood, or even fabric. Learn this skill just in time to make personalized gifts for the holidays!

All Day Discounts!
Wear a pirate costume, and receive a 20% discount on almost everything in the warehouse!
Sorry, discounts cannot be combined (so your 3 kids and 2 dogs may be darn cute in little buccaneer hats, but they can't earn you a 100% discount). This one- day sale does not include items from our consignment partners, items with missing or damaged price tags, and select specialty items.
- 20% off wood window sashes - these are great for creative repurposing!
- 20% off clawfoot bathtubs!
- 20% off radiators!
Sales do not include items from our consignment partners, surplus or modern mantels or tubs, items with missing or damaged price tags, and select specialty items.
Items from our Salvage Arts consignment partner rarely go on sale - but during the Pirate Parrrty, take 20% off the white tags on vintage laboratory glass, pottery, and printed or classic tinware! Sale does not include items with missing, damaged or orange tags.
Thanks to all our Forklift Fans for a fantastic party!
