July 18th

Hello friends,

We are just a week and a half away from the next Really Really Free Market.

Things won't be any different than previous RRFM's, however, the usual instigators will be out of town this weekend, so a great friend of ours and frequent RRFM participant will be taking over the facilitating duties.

We got this end covered, so all we need you to do is keep searching for goods you want to share and, most importantly, spread that good word about the Really Really Free Market and how awesome it can be.


Saturday, July 18th
2:30 - 6:00
Earth House (downtown Indy)

Bring some friends!

As always, thanks for being so awesome and participating fully.

Hey friends,

The Really Really Free Market is upon us...THIS Saturday from 2:30 - 6:00. We, the instigators, were pleasantly surprised to find a mention in Nuvo for the RRFM. Thanks to whoever took the initiative on that one. Also, we are pleased to announce that at least one, if not two, massage therapists will be on hand to ease your physical stresses. Do come out on Saturday and join in the fun. See you then!

One week away!

Hey all...just a reminder that the RRFM is only but a week away! If you're on the mailing list be sure to pass around that wonderful flyer that Erin made for us. It looks something like this:

3 Weeks

Hey friends,

The next Really Really Free Market is a meager 3 weeks away on Saturday June 20th at The Earth House from 2:30 - always.

We know garage sale season is upon us, but hey, in case you purchased something at a garage sale that you now have buyers remorse over, do not fret! Simply bring that unwanted item to the free market where we are sure it will find a happy home. Heck, we've already done that ourselves!

We want to apologize to everyone who attended last month, for there were no vegan desserts for the taking. We were very busy leading up to the market and simply didn't have the time to help you break your diets. We'll be sure to correct that oversight next month. Feel free to help us in that regard as well. Actually, feel free to help in any way you are inspired. Whether it's promotion (always awesome!), baking food, bringing items, performing a service, etc. You know everyone always appreciates it!

Keep spreading the good word about the Really Really Free Market and we'll see you in a few weeks!

6 months and who's counting? :)

A few of you have inquired as to whether the RRFM will take place this Saturday and rest assured IT IS! And not only is it happening but it is also the 6th month running for the Indy RRFM. Thanks to everyone who comes each month to contribute goods and services...without you...well, without you we instigators would be eating piles of homemade vegan goodness all by ourselves!

Now, speaking of instigating and questions of the RRFM taking place...let's all have a little chat for a moment. We, the instigators, have been absurdly busy as of late, which is why there have been less updates. While we apologize for not posting sooner, we would also like to take this opportunity to point out that we only *instigate* the RRFM, we do not own it. This means that you, fellow RRFMers, have the power to instigate as well! Until we are told otherwise by Kate Lamont, the RRFM will always happen at Earth House from 2:30-6pm on the third Saturday of EVERY month! What does this mean for you? It means that regardless of whether or not the original instigators of the RRFM make blogposts or send you an e-mail, the RRFM will alway happen at the same time, same place. YOU make the RRFM happen, not us! We only gave it a little push and then supply kick-ass vegan goodies and mood music! That's all we do! Really, folks! So, let's ALL take ownership and let's all be proud that we've kept this ball rolling for SIX MONTHS!

That being said...get off of your computers and go enjoy the day! We will see you Saturday afternoon!

Here's to the next six months, then the next six, and the next....

Yours Truly,

Two days.

Hello Friends,

We wanted to remind you (yet again) that this month's Really Really Free Market will take place on Saturday from 2:30 - 6:00 at The Earth House.

Our friend and continuous participant Anna (she gives the awesome massages) sent out this email to her list and we wanted to reproduce it here. Thanks for the mention Anna!

We had such a success last Saturday with massage by donation! All the appointments were filled and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I can do 8 hours of massage without keeling over and without having that last massage turn out... less than adequate. :D

Everyone has been doing a good job of figuring out what donation means to them. I've had monetary donations ranging from $10 to $70 and all sorts of amazing trades: a bag of groceries, a memory foam pad for my massage table, a session with a photographer to add graphics to my website, and more! I really love it when people offer up in trade that thing that they are best at. An herbalist friend has offered homemade herbal oil; Earth House's resident chef has whipped up some truly spectacular meals for me. Thank you so much to everyone for their thoughtful donations!

Come down to Earth House this Saturday for our monthly Really Really Free Market! Bring items or services that you have to offer and browse the bounty of really free offerings from 2:30-6pm every 3rd Saturday. I'll be doing massage by donation in the morning, and I still have a few appointments available. In the afternoon, from 4-6 I'll still be making my chair massage available, just like former free markets. So claim those early appointments! I still have 10am, 11am and 12pm. Then hang out in Earth House's comfy living room, er, cafe, and enjoy the afternoon's free bazaar.

The free market is my favorite day of the month, and I can't wait to see you all there!

Ok, that's it for now. See you all on Saturday!

April 18th

Hello Friends,

There are a number of new emails on our list from the last Really Really Free Market and we felt compelled to send out a big Hello to y' Hello! The next RRFM is two weeks from now on April 18th. I know a handful of us will be downtown for the Susan G Komen Race for The Cure that takes place earlier in the day, so if you plan to be in the area, do stop in to the RRFM while you are around town...and bring along some friends! Let's keep the momentum from last month going strong and see what we can create this time around. Thanks so much to everyone who has stayed involved and continues to spread the word. We look forward to seeing you again in a couple weeks.

Take care friends,
