Thread: “The really, really FREE Market”

    “The really, really FREE Market”

    Just as the title implies.

    Several years back when the group of us coordinated the Constitution Picnic Event, held at a park pavilion for the community which drew folks from PA, Ohio, and some from NY...

    We put up a few signs “The really, really FREE Market”, along with print-outs explaining the difference between Free Trade (which is peaceful) and Fair Trade (which is force).

    Folks brought in stuff they didn’t need anymore, new things that were crafted by hand (furniture, tools, art, etc), baked goods, etc. Almost like a yard sale but much better.

    Free to barter, trade for money or Precious Metals, voluntarily give away to put to good use (we don’t believe in waste).

    It’s a lot of fun, and explains the principles to kids and adults alike. No taxes, no fees, no regulations, no permits.

    It took off in a few communities after the event was over and we look forward to having another “The really, really FREE Market” pretty soon.

    It has varied... minimum 10, as many as 50. The idea is to keep advertising and increase the numbers.
