PDX Free Store

So, some people may have heard of clothing swaps, or “Swap shops” or free stores… Ours was born a couple of years ago, and it’s doing really well! We’ve been holding them about once a month. There’s one coming up on the 16th of August,

That’s the new flyer. It’s going to be at a school this time, and it might be hot, so stay hydrated. The way this works is you bring anything you don’t want anymore, and that you want to give away (It’s not required) and you can take as much as you can carry. We ask that people not be rude, obviously, but they’re very family friendly events.

At the moment, the Free Store is actually trying to get a truck, and they are gratefully taking donations to that effect: http://www.patreon.com/FreeStorePDX If you’d like to support this fantastic idea, as it grows toward its next stage of evolution.

We can create the world we want to see. This is totally possible for you to do wherever you live… You just need to connect with some people who want to clear out their closets and try to find a place to host it. We’ve found community centers, churches, school gyms, etc.

If you have any questions feel free to ask me, if I don’t know there is a Facebook group for it, https://www.facebook.com/groups/365603686842843/ 🙂
