Bioneers Swap Meet this Sunday on The Commons!

Finger Lakes BioneersWe’re having a 6th swap meet this Sunday, October 18, 2009. This one is short and sweet, from 12-2pm, and we hope to see you there!

The swap is an official part of the Finger Lakes Bioneers Conference‘s downtown festival on the Ithaca Commons! There will be live music and outreach by local environmental groups. We’ll have an info table at the Ampitheatre, along with spaces for free stuff and for bartering / selling, and people to help explain how it works.

What to bring:

  • Veggies, teas, baked goods, jams, tofu, home-canned produce, etc.
  • Tinctures, soaps, etc.
  • Ceramics, woodworking, art, etc.
  • Electronics, housewares, tools, books, etc.
  • Health services, bike repair, web design, accounting, shoveling, moving, etc.
  • Housing, workspace, sharable garden plots, event hosting, etc.
  • Bags, boxes or carts to take stuff home in
  • A table for your stuff (optional)

Guidelines:

  • Our goal is sustainability – please bring stuff that is locally-grown or made from local materials if possible, but anything is welcome!
  • Be prepared to take back home with you whatever you don’t end up bartering or giving away.
  • Please bring stuff that is in good condition or can be easily-repaired – no junk!

We hope to see you there. Please spread the word even if you can’t come!
