Long Beach Free Store

share what you have
find what you need


 SEE OUR CALENDAR FOR PoP Up Free Store Events

As a project of the Catalyst Network of Communities, the Long Beach Free Store serves as an opportunity for people to share what you have and find what you need.  If you would like to help out or take on a volunteer shift contact freestore@gocatalyst.org. 

One of our goals for the Free Store is that it would catalyze a conversation about what it'd be like for people to share resources. Some people are excited about the concept. Some people are cynical about the concept. But the reality is that neighbors can share what they have and find what they need. What can you do?

   PoP Up LB Free Store at First Fridays at TALB

Costume Swap at the October PoP Up LB Free Store


We will still be swapping & sharing anything that is clean and in good condition at the October 2016 PoP Up LBFS. But we invite you to rally your friends & family to clean-out their closets and bring any previously used costumes & wild outfits that they don't plan on wearing again. Also good to bring : anything that can be used to make a costume. Halloween theme items and decorations as well. Costumes for adults, children, pets... bring it all.  The LBFS does not provide the costumes or items that we swap - we just provide the space & opportunity to share. Help get the word out and encourage people to participate so we can all have a great exchange this Halloween season and avoid adding to the waste stream.


Join us for a PoP Up Free Store at the First Fridays at TALB (Teachers Association Long Beach) event on the 1st Friday each month during the Art Walk in Bixby Knolls.  We set up a Free Store tent in the parking lot - where you can bring items you no longer use that are clean and in good condition, and pick up something new (to you) for free!

 TALB is right on the corner of Atlantic & Claiborne at 4362 Atlantic Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90807 and we turn our parking lot area into a fun community space. Come and check us out!
