Totally Seriously Free

Capitalism, yeah, yeah. It's great! It's real motivational and gets you blenders. Still, it doesn't really help if you're poor, or weird enough to want things other than money and blenders. We know that describes a lot of you out there, so for you, there's the Really Really Free Market, which doesn't have much to do with the free market. Instead, it's about bringing usable items to an event with a flea-market vibe, and giving them away while picking up usable items brought by someone else. The RRFM doesn't even trouble itself with the trade or barter models; the idea is just to give and get. (Just be prepared to cart home what no one takes.) Organizers compare it to a potluck dinner, and make the point that in this consumer-goods-rich place, we shouldn't have to either buy or toss so many blenders.
