Pancakes, coffee, give away shop in front of the door

In order to compensate frustrations about tedious work, waste of time, people keep buying worthless things and are not happy about it. In the meantime, mountains of waste are growing, air and water are becoming polluted. Moreover, most of our consumer goods are made in poor countries, where people have to work for wages that they can barely eat. Time for a better approach.

One way to get us and our workforce out of this vicious circle is to consume less and re-use things. Because the most beautiful things often end up in the garbage or in the attic, a place is needed to make this abundance available. And because the real value of things is often obscured by their price (or exchange value), the best method is to simply give them away.

So a give away shop is a place where nothing is for sale and everything is free. A give away shop is not a garbage dump, but a place where you can drop off what is too good to throw away and take what you need with you. In a give away shop there is always enough for everyone’s needs, but not enough for everyone’s eagerness.
Do you still have something beautiful or useful left, or do you need something else?
