Dear PoP – Community Forklift Rocks

“Dear PoP,

I went to Community Forklift in Hyattsville this weekend – its pretty awesome and I’m sure that fellow PoP readers would enjoy.

It is heaven for a those renovating a house on a strict budget. Cheap wood floors, doors, windows, appliances, tile…

they also have a very reasonable antique section. I got a trunk for $100 and a door that will soon be a headboard for $20.”

When we have spoken about renovation projects in the past, many readers bring up this great spot. I’m long overdue in giving them a separate post. Their Web site says:

“Community Forklift aims to:

* Lift up communities by making repairs and renovation more affordable for everyone in the community – homeowners, small businesses, charitable groups, etc.
* Reduce construction industry waste, keep reusable materials out of the landfill, and reduce the mining and harvesting of dwindling natural resources.
* Promote environmentally-friendly building materials and methods
* Develop career opportunities for nearby residents.”
