```Sounds a little farfetched, but this is a nice example to introduce the use of Sow and Reap:
In[1]:= Reap[Sow[#, # < 3] & /@ Table[i, {i, 5}], True][[2, 1]]
Out[1]= {1, 2}
Something simpler might be
In[3]:= Cases[Table[If[i < 3, i,], {i, 5}], _?NumberQ]
Out[3]= {1, 2}
or even simpler
In[7]:= Select[Table[If[i < 3, i,], {i, 5}], NumberQ[#] &]
Out[7]= {1, 2}
