The Free Store, Just in Time for the Holidays

Monday, November 10, 2014


You can almost find anything at The Free Store, but the chances of finding what you need on your first visit can be low. It's not that the Free Store does not have enough items, but you just can’t seem to find the exact item you are looking for at the right time.

First of all, it is not every day that we find all the items in the Free Store. Some items leave the Free Store the second they are put on the shelf. We owe the success of the Free Store to our many donors, but also to all the students who come every day to not by new stuff but to pick it up for free at the Free Store. That effort is worth encouraging! That is why we want to thank you with our wish list.

Our volunteers are the first to see every item that gets put out into the Free Store. They could easily get the first choice on whatever they need, but what if we give that first choice to our customers? All you need to tell us is the items you want and as soon as we see it, it will be put aside for you.

No need to come every day to check for that item. Just be patient and wait for the one lucky donation.
As soon as we will have our wish list up and running we hope to give all of you a chance to join it. All we will ask in return is for you to write a blog post or send a picture of your find of the day!

I don’t know about you but writing my wish list makes me wish it was Christmas already!
