Aug 29 Swap Featured in the Ithacan, Ithaca College’s Newspaper
Share Tompkins and our upcoming Swap Meet were featured in the Ithacan in an article called Students invited to ‘shop’ at community swap meet. You can read the full article online and here’s an excerpt:
Students are encouraged to come whether it is just to check out the festivities or to barter.
Junior Alex Barbone said she is interested in attending the swap to see a different type of marketplace in action.
“I would absolutely be interested in exchanging babysitting services for fresh produce,” she said.
Barbone said she hopes she can find people who will want to act or help her out in the studio for her ICTV or E16 shows she is directing. With other people volunteering their services, Barbone said she is more comfortable with asking for help.
“I feel like when you buy something, you have to lose something to get the goods,” she said. “But if you exchange, then you get to help other people out and feel better about what you’re obtaining.”
