This came in from Giovanni, and I thought I’d promote it up to a post. I’m working on Saturday so I’ll miss it, but any reports are welcome:
…a couple of people talked about bartering, and I mentioned a Newtown exchange market in the process of being set up.
I can now confirm that the organisers will take part in the Knack Market this Saturday, 9.30 to 1.30 at Berhampore School, 105 Britomart Street, Berhampore, Wellers.
They’re going to have posters where people can write down what they’d be willing to exchange (things, time, knowledge) and share ideas – it’s a pretty cool setup. I realise I’m also shamelessly pimping the craft market itself, but it’s a school fundraiser and it supports local crafters so I don’t feel so bad.
Shamelessly pimp away man. The more local people not buying stuff from off-shore people being paid $2.50 an hour, the better.
