Baltimore Free Store

I was listening to NPR the other day and they did a piece on the Baltimore Free Store. The Free Store is like a flea market, only everything is donated and everything is free. It's run completly by volunteers and was started by Towson Students! "The concept for the Baltimore Free Store grew out of the work of a number of social justice organizations centered in Towson, MD. Students from Towson University, Goucher College, and area high schools worked together on issues of Fair Trade, labor rights, anti-war, animal rights, and other pro community related issues. From fighting for a Living Wage for workers on university campuses to opposing corporate globalization, the students and the community worked together to make great strides towards achieving social and economic justice. "
Unfortunatly I don't think they're having anymore events this year.
