Really Really Free Market
Bring anything in good condition you’d like to give away and take anything you’d like to have.
(You can also earn time hours for the
Chicago Time Exchange by helping present the items in an attractive way.)

Community Glue Workshop
Revive your well-worn possessions and meet our growing community of fixers! We've got handy volunteers and tools available, so bring an item in disrepair and a can-do attitude, and we'll do our best to breathe new life into your old items and keep them out of the landfill.

 Things we have successfully repaired in the past:

- clothes - simple jewelry fixes - bikes - kitchen appliances - furniture - bike accessories - guitars - toys (water guns, trucks, figurines) - knick-knacks
