For my bargain friends who are in the Los Angeles area.... there is a Really, Really Free Swap and Potluck on Saturday, January 30th from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
(Note to my readers that are not in the LA area.... don't be bummed that this swap isn't near you... find out how to have a free swap and create one in YOUR area. They are easy and fun.)
The Really Really Free Swap this Saturday is being put on by the Arroyo Time Bank which is a barter group centered in the Pasadena, California area. I am looking forward to learning more about this barter group and meeting some really cool people. Of course, I'm looking to score some great swap items as well.
So, here are the particulars:
Arroyo Center for the Arts
145 N Raymond Ave
Pasadena, CA 91103
Free parking is available in the surrounding streets north of Walnut and in the Courtyard Marriot parking lot for 90 minutes. The Armory is easily accessible from the Memorial Park Gold Line stop.
Free Food - Free Fun - Free Music - Free Clothes
You can bring your kids. They will have fun and find new toys.
Bring things you don't want and take whatever you want! You can also share
your skills, stories, smiles, friendship and ideas.
Rumor has it that there might be dancing - yahoo!
As with any swap, it is good manners to bring gently used swap items that are in good shape. If it is broken or dirty, don't bring it.
Free swap, means free swap. You bring stuff you don't want anymore and you put it down and leave it on the table. Someone else comes by and says, "wow, I like this" and now that item belongs to them. Ta-da! Really, really free swap.
I've been informed that the potluck is optional... but again, good form is to always bring something to a potluck.
See you there.
