We're startin up the Portland Oregon Really Really Free Market again for Summer 2009!

The Basics:
Every 2nd Saturday of the month (Starting June 13th) 12pm-4pm at Pennesula Park (on Albina between Ainsworth and Rosa Parks).

What its about-
The Really Really free market is a chance for people to swap stuff, give away stuff, get stuff, offer stuff, and share/learn skills ALL FOR FREE. If you have skills you want to share, you should show up and share them. In the past people have- taught basic guitar, shared herbal remedies, and taught basket weaving. If you have stuff you don't want/need anymore you should bring it and someone else might want it! Maybe you just wanna hang out or see what other people bring- that's fine too!

Some things to keep in mind-
It is really awesome when people take back with them whatever they bring that someone doesn't take- that leaves less cleanup for us volunteers.
It is also really awesome when people don't bring trash- if you have broken stuff no one is gonna want, please don't haul it all the way to the park.
Make it a safe space! Be respectful and open while you're there. Obviously, its a park and anyone can be there, but its great when everyone gets along!

Hope to see y'all there!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$60.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
