FREE STUFF! FREE SERVICES! FREE FUN!

Come One! Come All To the Summer Really Really Free Market!

Swap goods (You know, the stuff that is too good to
throw away but you shouldnt keep), share skills, give
presents, eat food, hang out, dance, sing and have
funall for free!

Nothing will be for sale! There will be Fun! Music!
and Food!

The Really Free Market is an open-air bazaar and
celebration, where we discard capitalist notions of
interaction and have fun trying new models of
exchange.

This will only be as great as you make it. We will
provide the framework; you supply the material.
Bringing free stuff and planning skill-shares are
great ways to get involved.

If you have a skill to share, stuff to give away, a
crazy art thing to do, music to play, an idea for
entertainment or a topic to discuss; email us soon and
let us know what you are planning! Otherwise, plan on
bringing your own table or blanket and coming and
going as you please, and if you want contact us, just
e-mail: inourhearts@gmail.com

Show up to St. Mark's Church with something to share,
and let this be another step in our movement towards a
really, really free world. Bring friends and gifts,
leave your wallet at home.

WHY REALLY REALLY FREE MARKETS?
Because there is enough for everyone.
Because sharing is more fulfilling than owning.
Because corporations would rather the landfills
overflow than anyone get anything for free.
Because scarcity is a myth constructed to keep us at the mercy of the economy.
Because a sunny day outside is better than anything money could buy.

Hi, I'll probably sound like an idiot in this, but I've never been to one of these before, soo....Basically I can just show up with lots of things that I wish to give away (I'm actually planning on moving soon, this event would be perfect if I could carry enough) and I can just set up a blanket and lay the items out? The wiki article also said I can offer services like hair cuts and so forth? Sorry, I just want to make sure I fully grasp this, it sounds awesome. haha.

Thanks for any help in making me understand this.

yup...

you sure can and people sure do...

If you can do all this and show up and be, maybe I can too. Posted by: Sandy at October PM Sandy, you know I actually made a mental note to find that free people sweater right.
