Alternative Gift Fair

Spreading the word about the coming RRFM at today's Alternative Gift Fair was a resounding success, with buzz for the event building and great responses to the flyers all around. We passed out a good number of flyers, have another batch of email addresses to add to our already substantial list and received great verbal response for the event. We possibly have a few "vendors" in the bag to contribute services, including a portrait photographer. In all everything went better than planned.

As always, contact us with any questions/suggestions about the RRFM and in the meantime, consider what you yourself might be able to contribute, but even if you draw a blank, come anyways!

Alternative Gift Fair

Hey Friends,

Participants of the Indy Really Really Free Market will be at the Earth House on Saturday, November 29th to hand out fliers at the Alternative Gift Fair. If you see us there and have questions about participating, please feel free to approach us. We'd be glad to answer any questions about the concept behind a RRFM or how you can get involved.

Until then, here are some links to RRFM's around the country, some put on by friends of ours.

plans and confusion

Hey friends,

The Indy Really Really Free Market is still rolling on as we are only one month away from the inaugural event. We've made a couple flyers (that have been posted on this blog) and have begun distributing them around town. We have also been sending out emails to our lists and to those of you that signed up at the Food Coop presentation a few weeks back. We'll continue to send out emails as the date draws closer. Be on the lookout for flyers and if you'd like to hand some out yourself, contact us through the email ( and we'll see about getting you some. Remember, word of mouth is the quickest and easiest way to get people interested. With that in mind, there has been some confusion with the Really Really Free Market date.

A group of unfortunate souls had a difficult time finding the location on their way to the supposed RRFM last Friday. The exact address is on the flyers and the dates are correct as well. The RRFM will only be held on the third SATURDAY of every month starting in December. I don't know how the mix up occurred, but there was no RRFM in November and it wasn't on a Friday. Regardless, that situation has been remedied and we hope to see you all next month.

Do come in any regard, but also consider any items or skills you might possess to share with others. The success and vitality of a RRFM is dependent on the type of atmosphere we all create together, so do keep that in mind. Whatever your passion, (cooking, repairs, art, massage, etc.) or whatever items you'd like to pass along (computer, cookware, bikes, etc.) please come to the RRFM on Saturday December 20th.

Email us with any further questions/comments.
