Liberal voter at the freeshop

You get all types coming to the free shop, for those who don’t know what a free shop is, its a place hwhere you can get things fro free, things that would otherwise be destined for landfill or charity as a business style operations. So she arrives an wants the football, the ones we had just pumped up. so we gave here the choice of the small kids one , the rubber coated one and the leather one.

She had to have the ‘far dinkum’ leather one. Well not exactly ‘fair dinkum’ it didn’t have Sherrin written on it but i digress.

But it simply had to be the leather one.


Ever hear of looking a  gift horse in the mouth?

Then she talks about how wonderful Tony Abbot is.

We love political discussions at the free shop.

The brief exchange was this:

Volunteer: Don’t you think Tony Abbott will replace the carbon tax with an emissions trading scheme that will be just as expansive?

Liberal party cunt: Oh no.

Volunteer: You know global warming is not real.

Liberal party cunt: Yes it is! You’re an idiot!

Stunned free shop volunteer walks away from this ungrateful rude cunt.

Later on she was heard saying there’s my CEO…  Basically just to big note her self.

So there you go, a typical Liberal party voter:

Perfectly happy to demand the best for free, offering nothing in return, and then insults the people who she benefits from, big notes herself, and thinks this is totally acceptable behavior.

She never even thought to ask about making any kind of donation.

If you are the liberal party voter from the story, don’t ever come back to the free shop, you are the worse person who has ever arrived.

Tony Abbott is a dope and so are you.


Bentleigh Free Shop 21/08/2013

Our gift economy experiment continues every Wednesday at Bentleigh Rotunda. The Barbie Condo/castle is still available and we also have have an endless array of books, dvds, toys, clothes and household goods. All to be given away to good homes for free rather than ending up in landfill prematurely.

We had a really happy Elvis fan arrive and found a great Elvis CD in the free shop stock. He totally understood what we were doing, and why were were doing it.

He said “wait here I’m going to get you some stuff, I’ll be back in 10 minutes”.

Sure enough he returned with a  huge box of new clothes, and stuck around to chat for quite a while.

Bentleigh free shop is getting some real support from the community which is great.

So to say thank you to our Elvis fan, we thought we’d add a strangely appropriate Elvis song. Watching this video is also free.

In a world where our monetary and political systems makes no sense, Elvis at the free shop somehow makes sense.

Bentleigh Free Shop Week 2

Bohemian Glade

We decided to use the main rotunda this week , as the one near the street was very windy when we arrived. It was a little harder to get people to come and have a look as it’s set back from the street a bit, but we still managed to have some interesting conversations and distribute free stuff to loving homes. The cops turned up but were surprisingly friendly. As we were loading up the car at 5pm, two ladies who work in the adjacent Medicare office grabbed the kidie car seat for a friend! It always feels good to go home with less stuff than we arrived with.Shopview2
