NEXT REALLY REALLY FREE MARKET:
Saturday, April 6, 2013
Campbell Park Community Centre (7min walk from Lansdowne Station)
**Please bring any items BEFORE 4pm to give others a chance to see them and take them home before we close up.
What is the Really Really Free Market?
The Really Really Free Market is a community-space for sharing – where people bring what they have to give, take what they need, and leave the rest. It’s kind of like a potluck, but for goods and services!
There are lots of ways to participate in the Really Really Free Market, such as:
- BRING GENTLY USED STUFF! When you arrive, look around the market to figure out how the stuff of the day has been organized and try to figure out where the stuff you brought will fit in. If you need help, look for a volunteer and ask.
- TAKE STUFF! There's plenty to take! Don't be shy! But we do encourage people to take things that they will use in the future (so that it doesn't end up in the garbage later)
- HANG AROUND! This is a community space - enjoy it and help make it enjoyable for other people.
- CONTRIBUTE A SERVICE - such as haircuts, fix up skills, yoga classes, music/dance lessons, massage, or gardening help.
- HELP ORGANIZE! Either at the event (there lots of sorting of stuff to be done). After the event (we need help finding places for all of the stuff). Or behind the scenes (help keep this thing running) Contact us if you're interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
What kind of stuff could you bring?
-> clothes, books, music, household and kitchen wares, pet supplies, homemade goods, such as crafts, art, artisan goods, food, baked goods, (don’t forget to list the ingredients!)
** Please no large items. We don't have the capacity to store anything, and everything we transport has to fit on 1-2 bike trailers.
How great is Campbell Park?

Where does it all go?
At the end of the day, all unclaimed items will be brought to a variety of community based sites that would make the items available for free to people (no resale) or contribute it to free community programs. One great example we have found so far, is the open bookshelf at Wallace Emerson community centre where people are able to take or leave books freely.
WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR ADDITIONAL ORGANIZATIONS TO ADD TO OUR NETWORK. If you have ideas, please let us know! email@example.com
