We are DC's Non-Profit Thrift Store for Home Improvement & Architectural Salvage

Mission
To lift up communities in the DC area by reducing construction waste; creating green jobs; and making repairs affordable for low-income folks, homeowners, small businesses, and nonprofits.

Description
At our very large warehouse, you can donate new and used building materials to receive a tax deduction, or you can purchase materials at prices that are 40% - 80% below retail.

Thrift store proceeds go right back into reuse! We "lift up communities" by reducing construction waste, creating green jobs, and making repairs affordable for homeowners, low-income folks, small business owners, and nonprofit groups. We also provide public education about local recycling & reuse options, and donate building materials to partner nonprofits and families in need.

Pretty much everything and everything for reclaimed & recycled building materials. Prices are fair, and with an expert eye, bargains can be found.

A good place to take donations of excess building material. They will accept almost anything, and give you a receipt for tax putposes. A good place to buy radiators. They also sell used toilets. There is a good collection of used and antique tools. Lots of tile. Never the same as the last visit.

We've saved a lot of money on renovation projects by shopping at Community Forklift! Reusing materials takes more time, but when you're working on a budget it can't be beat! Plus you're keeping materials out of the landfill by giving them a new life. Booya!

It's a huge and interesting place to wander around. The thing that really put me off was the surprisingly high prices. There are plenty of items I don't know the value you of, but there are a lot I know for a fact are close to half that cost on ebay (most things antique, stained glass, brass items, collectible tools, lamps, etc.) and far less still at a Goodwill type place (30yr old furniture, light fixtures, etc.). Don't take my word for it. Next time you are there, pull out your smartphone and look up an item on ebay and see for yourself. I understand that this is a non-profit, but I also wonder what the owners are paying themselves. If they get a lot of this stuff donated for free and then charge these prices..

I went there on a lark looking for a piece of granite for a small counter I was making in my bathroom. I'd been there before for other things, but have never been really impressed by their selection of doors or windows. Second Chance in Baltimore has more of those. But this place excels in stone. They had probably three or four times the marble and granite of Second Chance, and were very reasonably priced. At other places I didn't see anything I liked, but here I was choosing between three favorites pieces. Even after machining(The expensive part that has to be done elsewhere) my vanity counter will be under 150 bucks! The person who helped me was very nice and charismatic. It seems like the employees enjoy their jobs, which makes them nice to deal with.
