The LAfreestore is a place where people can give and swap by donating and taking. Yes taking. We can take what we need. We give what we cannot use. Give freely. Take without guilt. Share with your neighbor. Simple.
At the LAfreestore we share goods for goods, goods for services, or smiles for smiles. We give to those who may simply need a new sweater or jacket because they are cold or share our bountiful vegetables from our garden because it is a nice thing to do.
There's one unique store in Los Angeles where everything is free. Seriously. Absolutely free. The LA Free Store is a pop-up event where people can come together to give, take, share, swap, and learn.
"In essence," explains the LA Free Store, their goal is "to build community and to provide an alternative to mainstream capitalism. This requires Volunteerism. Friendships. Swapping. Donations. Giving. Sharing. And lots of smiles!" So, yes, you can, in fact, trade a goofy grin for a sweater, some records, or a bag full of just-picked garden veggies.-Everything is Free at One L.A. Shop
