Indy has it's first REALLY REALLY FREE MARKET!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey mamas! Anyone in the Indy area or surrounding...you should all head over to Earth House on December 20th for the first Really Really Free Market! My BF has been dreaming of doing this for a long time now and we've been working hard to bring it to fruition over the past couple of months. For those of you who are unfamiliar, a RRFM is basically a collective of individuals within a community who come together and form a temporary anti-capitalist market by bringing material goods, food and services to give without asking for anything in return. There is no bartering, it's not a swap and no money is involved. If you have something that you'd like to give/contribute then do so, and if you're in need of anything be it material or non-material, there's a good chance you'll find it at the RRFM. The timing couldn't be perfect for the first RRFM...who knows what kind of last minute Christmas gifts can be found...FOR FREE! Check out the blog for more information or feel free to PM me!

Peace

"The RRFM is like a communal garage sale, but better, for there are no price tags! It is a gathering place for individuals to offer goods and services free of charge without bartering, monetary exchange, cops or jails. It is the gift economy in action and everyone is invited to come out the 3rd Saturday of every month at the Earth House downtown!"

I've been to this out in Portland OR and we found some great dollies for my daughter, a free haricut for my son, a few "new" books to take home and yummy light lunch foods to enjoy- go and support this fun market.
I'll keep ready for the next one in Indy, moving there in January!:

I forgot to mention...we already have a couple of people who will be providing services...I think there might be some bike repair, I know there will be photography, I am pretty sure that there will be a nurse practitioner/midwife student there. If anyone is interested in prodiving services (we're looking for more of that!) PM me or e-mail us thru the blog!

bikey mama carie...make sure you PM me when you head this way! We'd love to say hello at the RRFM or any other time. Where in Indy will you be? And dare I ask why Indy from Portland?

And did I mention that a fellow MDC mama who encapsulates placentas will be offering up one free encapsulation, too?

And YOU are a stunning, sexy, powerful, world and mind-altering substance yourself.

Let's keep bumping this up by talking amazingly about each other !

Shamelessly bumping this up...we now also have free chair massages, free photography services, free bike repair and the slight possibilities of the Burrito Project passing out free burritos. Nuvo has us on the social justice calendar this week and they'll be there doing a story on it. Rock it out!

This sounds GREAT (and the 'heated' discussion is great to read too, he he)! I am going to try to make it up from Columbus and go with some Indy pals, have you told the Holistic Moms Network in Indy yet? They would be a great resource for you to connect with, tons of like-minded moms.

Whoo hoo! I'll be the one with the camera so be sure to say hello! I have not connected with HMN...do you have any contact information for them, by chance? We have so much cool stuff going on that day...I'm so excited! And yeah, there's always great "heated" conversation with MamaQ...she's one amazing mama, it's hard for there not to be!

Looking forward to seeing/meeting everyone!
