The Brooklyn Free Store will be popping-up once again at Tompkins / Von King Park in BedStuy on Friday September 21st from 12-6pm
Look for us on the corner of Marcy & Lafayette Ave
The idea of the Free Store is simple: take whatever you can use, bring whatever you can give that someone else could use. It is a model for another way of living without money and without scarcity.
We will have tables and a small tent . We could use shelves and a clothing rack if anyone has any they can share even for just the day.
The OWS Bike Coalition will again be participating and sharing their knowledge of bicycle maintenance! They will have tools and can help you fix your bike!
This may become a more regular event or we may find a more permanent location (if you know of one get in touch) so stay tuned! The future of this event depends on how much people support it. Let us know if you can help out particularly with setting up and cleaning up, but also with publicity, and greeting people during the event.
The Free Store will be on the corner of Lafayette Ave and Marcy Ave at Von King Park, just one block from the Nostrand exit of the Bedford-Nostrand G train stop.
