COME to the August Really Really Free Market (RRFM)

Imagine a neighborhood rummage sale where people from around town brought a load of the nice things they no longer needed. Imagine a lot full of useful stuff, gently used clothes, and all the random things you could never find in stores anyway. Now, imagine you can take any of it for free!

It's not a fantasy, it's happening in garden park on August 9th from 10-4pm but it'll be nothing without you. Without you coming to bring something or take a bunch of stuff away, it'll just be another Sunday in the park. Consider this a modest challenge! When we have no control over the economy and sometimes whether we can keep a job or our homes, can we organize ourselves to materially support each other?

So, raid the closets, scour the basement, empty the attic one of these cool summer days. Tell your friends and neighbors to do the same and we'll see you there!

More on Really Really Free Markets

On another note, please forgive our patchy open hours in the first week of August, some of our volunteers are out of town. We're always looking for people to plug in and pick up shifts or take responsibility for one of the collectives. More on this soon. Comment here or stop in if you're interested in improving the CCC.
