We will be holding a “Free Market” event behind our office at 242B Spring Street, Red Bank, NJ 07701 on Saturday, September 19th, from 9am – 5pm. A “Free Market” represents the core idea behind TreasureCircle.com, that is, a common space where people can bring their unwanted possessions to give them away to others and take things that they need, all without any money exchanging hands. TreasureCircle.com is in essence, an online free market, with additional features that are made possible by the Internet.
Built around the gift economy, it’s socially responsible, environmentally friendly, and good to your pocketbook. In other variations it might also be called a swap meet, free exchange, or outside “free store”
This will be an event open to the general public and advertised as similar to a garage or boot sale, flea market or swap meet. Anyone may bring their excess stuff to participate and hang out. You must take home anything that belongs to you that wasn’t given away.
Attendees will be required to register their name and e-mail address in exchange for taking any items. Donations will be accepted during the event, or on our website, but are not required. We will be posting updates soon here to the site and our Facebook page.
