Really Really Free Market

When:
Sat 17May2014
Noon to 4PM

Where:
SubRosa Courtyard
703 Pacific Ave
Santa Cruz, CA

No money. No trades. Everything is free.
This market is based on a gift-economy and thinks capitalism sucks. Bring food to share. Bring your special items that you don’t use but can’t throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines…your free box). Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki…). Come and take what you can use and say thanks! We will have folks to check in with as you arrive. First come first served, space may be limited.

If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.
