I am part of an online community called Buy Nothing, it’s organized through Facebook groups in your neighborhood. It is a “gift economy” where people give items that have for free, and people can request items. There is no bartering, and no discussion of $$, it is created in the spirit of freely gifting, asking, and receiving. You can also give or ask for time or talent.
This past weekend I offered four handmade Valentine’s Day cards, made to order. I was feeling extra creative and ended up making nine Valentine’s Day cards and four Lunar New Year’s cards 🙂
It was lots of fun 🙂 I hand delivered many of them to my neighbor by foot.
