A freestore is essentially a free thriftstore. Clothes, small household items, cooking utensils, books, small electronics, and more - all for free. The freestore at the Blackrose Infoshop is the best example that I've seen in town. |
This is alternative economics at its best: an anti-capitalist model for meeting the material needs of the community in a totally open, non-alienating way. Everyone's welcome to participate, regardless of political identity, aesthetics, or sub-culture. This isn't a radical project. This is a community project.
A garage would be the perfect space for this. Anyone out there maybe willing to donate their garage? We might be able to pay a little money each month, but probably not over $100.
I envision the store being open 4 or 5 days a week, and maybe 4 hours a day to start off.
How You Can Help:
- Help organize! I'm pretty busy, and could really use some co-organizers.
- Volunteer once the store is open. Just four hours once a week!
- Donate your garage!
- Donate money or supplies! Remodeling, clothes racks, outreach, and more.
