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,
