Free this Sat: LAfreestore

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |


A store you don't have to spend a single dime in? That's exactly what LAfreestore is. Placed right outside Casa Princessa Cafe for one day only, LAfreestore is a place to find things you need and give what you don't.


I love their intro, which goes:
The LAfreestore is a place where people can give and swap by donating and taking. Yes taking. We can take what we need. We give what we cannot use. Give freely. Take without guilt. Share with your neighbor. Simple.

At the LAfreestore we share goods for goods, goods for services, or smiles for smiles. We give to those who may simply need a new sweater or jacket because they are cold or share our bountiful vegetables from our garden because it is a nice thing to do.
LAfreestore is first of its kind planned in the Highland Park/Eagle Rock area. It hopes to support sustainability (not to mention community) by giving and taking only what's needed. Live music and free workshops will be going on at the venue. If you're interested in going or participating, here's what you should know. They also have a Facebook page here.
