A shop where everything is free and based on people taking / donating what they want smile

The idea is that goods are offered for direct exchange of other goods, this gives emphasis on people co-operating without using capitalist exchanges

With free shops, direct exchange is explicitly not involved. People are encouraged to take things they want even if they don't have anything they want to give in return, and vice versa.
