Really Really FREE Market
by Your Friendly Neighborhood Anarchists (reallyfreemarket [at] mutualaid.org)
Wednesday Apr 27th, 2005 1:09 PM
Saturday April 30, 2005 12-4pm at Dolores Park

We would love for you to come and offer your special gifts and talents at this event.

The RRFM is based on the idea of a gift economy, namely that giving feels good; that if we were to all to share what we had, we wouldn’t have less than we have now, we’d actually all have more than we currently have. Giving is a pleasure in itself. Gift others with your clutter. Gift others with your talents. Gift others with your presence!

We would love for you to come and offer your special gifts and talents at this event.

The RRFM is based on the idea of a gift economy, namely that giving feels good; that if we were to all to share what we had, we wouldn’t have less than we have now, we’d actually all have more than we currently have. Giving is a pleasure in itself. Gift others with your clutter. Gift others with your talents. Gift others with your presence!

Bring *your thing* to the event, whatever that is! Material goods, a
service to provide, a skill you have that you want to teach to others, a performance, or anything else!

The Really, Really Free Market consists of the sum of its participants. The gift you bring to the event, helps create what the event is for others, just as what others bring to the event, creates what the event is for you.

This is not an event for bartering. This is not an event to advertise your company or yourself, leave your businesscards at home! It’s about gifting without the expectation of anything in return, and it's about taking without feeling the need to reciprocate to that individual.

Material goods to give: Books, clothing, odds and ends, etc.; healing
arts: massage, reiki, yoga; circus arts (performing and teaching):
juggling, poi, stilts; sports and games: soccer, frisbee, etc.; bicycle
repair; there will also be a kids' space with facepainting, games, and
more; and of course, food!

We are hoping to make this a regular event in San Francisco. The first Really, Really Free Market is being held on:

Saturday April 30, 2005 from 12-4pm at Dolores Park.

If you like what you just read, get involved! Come to the event! Bring your own gifts to share! Spread the info and get more people involved! This event takes YOU to make it happen!

Please respond with your thoughts, ideas, what you plan on bringing to the event, etc.

See you April 30th!
