New limit on shopping with a super-sturdy bag!

Some of you who came to the last market might remember our conversations about a new limit. Based on the positive feedback we received, as of July 2nd, 2016, we are changing the shopping limit to 1 (one) IKEA bag per person, and 2 (two) IKEA bags for whole family.

Which IKEA bag, I hear you ask! There are so many!
This one:

We expect that the smaller limit will encourage some people to be more restrained in their shopping, allowing everyone equal access to new items. Remember, a Really Really Free Market is all about sharing.

If you have one of these, or a small size shopping cart, we prefer you use those. If not, you can check in with us regarding the size of the shopping container you have brought with you.

Happy shopping!

June 4th Market Reflections

Thank you to everyone who made it out to our June 4th RRFM at Campbell Park!
We enjoyed our first market of the year outdoors, under a canopy of trees.  It was great to see so many new faces as well as returning ones!  Lots of interesting objects and clothes appeared throughout the day and most items found a new home by closing time. Yay!
You can check out some photos from our June market on our Facebook page.

Our next market will take place on July 2nd.  A **reminder** that we would like to begin our new ‘shopping’ guideline then. Thank you for helping us create and maintain community. 

We are always looking for volunteers to help at the market and behind the scenes organizing it!  Please email if you are interested.
