Ok, so it's more facebook page and less blog, but free is good -- not even too good to be true this time -- and good, free, local stuff makes us happy.
The "gifting" facebook group is a collection of downtowners who have things to give away.
Given: you have to be a member of the group and in exchange for your items, you can only expect brownie points.
Just a selection of what's up for grabs right now: a dresser, vertical blinds, baby clothes, gallons of paint and two arm bands (thanks Tyler Hurst).
The group is planning a meetup/potluck/swap fest for Aug. 26. For updates, more information and access to a boatload of some seriously free downtown goodies, check out the phx SHARE facebook page.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
