This is a fantastic place for hard to find vintage building materials and other household items. Prices are lower than i expected. If you want anything made in the last 30 years, this is not for you for the most part. I dont know how they aquire materials but would think an effort to stock newer items be it pay a little more if they pay at all for these. I hill research more and raise my rating if deserved. 5 stars for vintage selection, 1.5 stars for newer products. I founf almost no plumbing fixtures. Came for tubs and faucets. Tubs they have ...poor quality for the most part but kitchy. Almost no faucets.

Great place to go for salvaged house material that can be given new life. My wife and I spend hours browsing in this place. So much stuff! I'm not sure how the pricing is set up though. Some items seem like they're a steal, other seem fair and some will make you scratch your head and say "really?" The customer service is awesome and the people that work there are super friendly. We go about once every other month.

Unique blend of hard-to-find, boutique, and affordable common items usually donated from renovations in the area. Great community presence and a worthwhile stop each time.

This place is awesome. I always find great items at great prices. Everyone there is super friendly and they even host events to show their support for the community. If you get a chance, I definitely recommend you check it out.

The Community Forklift is a great business. They essentially sell donated housewares, building materials, appliances, etc. all of which is donated to them. The warehouse itself is enormous, and they have everything, doors, windows, lumber, screws, paint, washers, dryers, toilets, and yes, even the kitchen sinks! The staff is super helpful and knowledgeable, and the prices can't be beat. For instance, $0.15 per foot of PVC pipe: you can't get those prices are your local hardware store! The turnover in inventory for some categories of stuff is massive. If you're looking for a shopvac, they sell out pretty quickly (I know). but if you go back a few days, then you are likely to find one that hasn't been sold yet. They are also super involved in the green community, and host parties the first Fridays of the month (hence the name, "First Fridays"). All around, this is a great local green business to support, and you can sometimes find some real treasures here that you won't find elsewhere.

Love this place. You can search for hours and find some real good second hand deals for your place. from wood to full kitchen installation. Second hand stoves and windows and all kinds of stuff. There are also some cute stores out front who sell second hand furniture and designed furniture.

Another great business just outside of DC. Salvaged and reclaimed building materials for cheap. Lumber and hardwood. Old furniture and tools. Great for artists and craftsmen alike.

A great place to find "house parts" -- doors, fixtures like clawfoot tubs, sinks,, radiators, some appliances... Everything is donated, recycled from done old house being remodeled. Some of the stuff is less than 1/4 what you would pay to get new, and some of the stuff you could never find new... Old locksets, radiators, door knobs... It will be a bit of work finding what you need. I just got 100 sf of heart pine flooring for my remodel to match the flooring in my 100 y/o house. $300, versus over $1000 I was quoted to buy this small amount, new. You can also donate stuff FROM your remodel.
