I love Free Shops!! They are awesome!
And I just wanted to show you a couple of items I got on my free shop hauls lately.
Free shopping is so much more exciting then regular shopping.
It’s like another person left presents there for you to find.
You’ll often find something unique, I sometimes find handmade or hand embellished clothing.
Free shops are awesome, coz they redistribute stuff from people that don’t need it to people that need and want it. They are like the flow stations in society. Things flow in and they flow out. No throwing beautiful, useful items into landfills or incinerators. Thinking of all the great stuff that already ended up in landfills, coz people didn’t think about it or didn’t know what to do with it, makes me pretty sad.
No exchange of money needed. Just giving and receiving.
It’s almost like a free rental shop, if you don’t like something, just bring it back or give it to another free shop or one of your friends.
My favourite free shop in Berlin is called “Schenkladen”, which translated means “the shop of giving”. Sweet name!
A new friend of mine invited me to a ‘free flea market’. Can’t wait to go! Have you been to a free shop before? What cool things did you get or experience?
