Today's post features the Really, Really Free Market on Buy Nothing Day, alternatively known as Black Friday. The market was held at the People's Market and Gardens in Glenwood. In the above photo, you can see Kathy Clark working away folding items at one of the giving tables. People were spread out across the parking lot and free items were coming and going all day long. The children who attended really seemed to value the treasures they were picking up. There were some arts and crafts items and a few toys. Hopefully, the market will continue to grow and even more people in need, and people in "want", will continue to enjoy the day.
A big thank you to Kathy who also had to take the leftovers to the Goodwill Store and she learned quickly what the Goodwill will and won't accept. Car seats and strollers are no-no items. Fortunately, she didn't have any pets to re-home, just a few unwanted and unclaimed baby items. It was was nice seeing everyone out enjoying the neighborhood. Indeed, Glenwood was shining with fellowship this past Friday. If you want to sponsor a community event like this, what are you waiting for? A few Facebook and community bulletin board announcements, a place that will let you set up, some tables, and a plan for leaving the space item and litter free and, voila, you have a Free Market. Thank you Kathy; thank you Glenwood, thank you Greensboro, for making this event happen! Thank you for everyone who came out and gave and took this past Saturday. Fun was had by all!
