The good folks at Dreamland have come up with a rather unusual take on shopping. On Saturday, January 30, the DIY artist collective will be opening a permanent, free, barter store in the back of its creative space. Browsers will be able to visit the shop, take what they like, and leave something behind in the process.
The point is to “declutter and regather” in a way that works for everyone. Shoppers will be able to exchange two items at any given time – clothing, books, plants, shoes, art supplies, etc. The exchange items must be in good shape in order to make the barter exchange. There’s also an honesty policy, where shoppers can snag a couple of items, and then bring a couple of things to replenish at a later date.
*Leave Some Take Some requests items in good condition:
Small Potted plants
Books (Art, DIY, design, sci-fi/fantasy, social justice, queer, philosophy, poetry, zines…)
[Dreamland will not accept items that are not in these categories]
Store hours are during events. Events are plentiful.
