Very interesting - Cortes Island also has a free store. I wonder where else has them?

free store

Please tell me that Margaux Williamson had a warmer jacket (that just wasn't stylish enough for a photo) that she snuggled into right after the shot was taken.My favourite free store is on Denman Island. Open Saturday mornings in the basement of the old school. Books, cassette tapes, games, puzzles, toys, dishes and household utensils and lots of clothes in all shapes, sizes and colours. No appliances but there's a list on the wall that invites you to write down the particulars of your "large items" along with your phone number.Take something away today and if you decide it's not quite right, take it back next week. I'm on the island only sporadically but I almost always find something that fits me just right and has that soft, inviting feel of a favourite old shirt.
