One of our favorite home improvement destinations is Community Forklift, located near Hyattsville MD. Community Forklift is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to reduce landfill waste by salvaging building materials. While it is not in Brookland, let alone DC, we thought their Black Friday and Small Business Saturday events would be of interest to readers since it’s not too far and sounds like a lot of fun! Here are some details and sure to check out the Facebook event page for more info.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and you know what that means… Community Forklift’s Green Friday and Small Business Saturday Weekend Extravaganza!
We hate Black Friday – the commercialism, the cost, and the unhappy crowds.
Lets Celebrate Community Instead!
Every year, Community Forklift adds a fresh twist to the drudgery of Black Friday and the holiday scramble by celebrating green, local, and small businesses, as well as teaching folks how to make their own unique gifts and holiday decorations.
