One of my 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 Annual Garden Party and Spring Sale would be of interest to readers since its not too far and sounds like a lot of fun! Anyone working to maintain the original character of their home or simply fond of antique and re-purposed items would enjoy a visit. Community Forklift is about a 15 minute drive to 4671 Tanglewood Drive, Edmonston MD 20781. See the flyer above for more details.
