Today’s times call for a new kind of economics to address the changing needs of our community. The Tampa Bay Time Bank has created an event to do just that: Abundance Swap.

Here’s a flyer to send to friends and post around town: TBT Abundance Swap Flyer

This Abundance Swap will be an activity where anyone can bring a gently used item or one in decent working order. Those items will be on tables for display, and can be taken home for free. Bring something, take home something! One person’s trash is another’s treasure.

What: Tampa Bay Time Bank’s Abundance Swap

Where: Sacred Grounds Coffee House, 4819 E. Busch Blvd., Tampa, FL 33617

When: Saturday, December 13, 2014, 1pm – 4pm

Who: anyone who wants to participate in these creative exchanges

Why: de-clutter your home, get some good stuff, meet like-minded others

Tampa Bay Time http://tampabaytime.org is a community skills exchange, also known as a Time Bank. We offer what we do well and ask for help with what we need. We work for social justice while expanding our circle of friends. All are welcome.

Time Banking is a social change movement based on five values:

  • Assets: we are all assets.
  • Redefining Work: Some work is beyond price.
  • Reciprocity: Helping works better as a two-way street.
  • Social Networks: We need each other.
  • Respect: Every human being matters

Donate items in good working order: ‘Gently used’ Clothing, children’s stuff, household/kitchen stuff, electronics parts, leftover house paint, companion animal items, games (make sure they are playable), toys, tools, books, art and craft supplies. Broken crayons ok, used pencils ok. Crafters can use an old dress to cut up fabric. If clothing is not wearable, take off buttons; someone may use them. Pieces of wood leftover from a project ok.

Please No: food, shoes, underwear, dirty or beyond-broken things, cleaning products, cosmetics, etc.
