Really Really Free Market
Marie Kondo, tidying up guru who popularized the KonMari method, has taken the internet by storm with her new Netflix show. If you're one of those who have been inspired to get a fresh start with a bit of decluttering, you can take your pre-loved goods to Pineapple Lab this Sunday, Jan. 6, for the Really, Really Free Market. The temporary market is based on an alternative gift economy where participants can take anything for free — no trade, no barter. Offer anything from clothes, books, and home items, to services like massages, music, and even haircuts.
RRFM is happening from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Pineapple Lab is located at 6053, R. Palma St., Brgy. Poblacion, Makati City. For more information, visit the Facebook event page.
