Really Really Free Market (Perth)

Somehow Madame Moselle has never managed to be in Perth when one of these has been on, but maybe one day! Might fine idea they are indeed!
*****
19th September 15:00 – 18:00
Hyde Park, North Perth (Stage area, North East side of lake)
A Really Really Free Market is like a potluck for whatever you want to give or take away. Have you ever brought one dish to a group dinner and gone away with a full belly and a balanced meal? Everybody brings something and goes away with more.

We all have skills, ideas, objects, smiles, talents, friendship, excitement, discussions, and many other things to share. If we bring them all together at the Really Really Free Market, we ……can provide more balanced and full lives for everyone.

As a community we have many more resources than we do as individuals. If we share our resources we won’t need to buy as many new ones. This uses fewer of the Earth’s resources, and fewer of our working hours, leaving us more time to devote to ourselves and our communities.

***

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Bring useful items that you no longer need or want to share freely with other members of your community.

Browse through the things others have brought and leave with what your family needs, regardless of whether you brought something or not.

Bring your talent and give something of yourself: music, poetry, storytelling, lessons.

Or bring your unique service or expertise to share with others: haircuts, painting, knitting, bicycle repairs etc.

Bring a gift of food and share in a picnic lunch with other friends and families from your community or share surplus produce from your garden.
