About the event

Saturday, December 16th, from 2pm to 5pm will be our final 2023 edition of the Gainesville Pop Up Free Store.


Sweatshirts, flannels, coats, jackets, sweaters, blankets, sleeping bags, gloves, thermal underwear, etc.

Located at the Civic Media Center (433 S Main St).

Please do not come early (especially with children) unless you are there to help volunteer. We will not be able to let folks in early, as we will be working on setting up.

Properly worn face masks will be required to gain entry to the space, and masks and hand sanitizer will be available at both entrances to the CMC.

Free Store was set up with the needs of queer and trans people, people between housing, and those in special need in mind. So please spread the word to people who have access to those communities so that these objects can do the most good.

That being said, we humans still create so much stuff... We have plenty to share, so come by and say hello - there's probably a treasure or two waiting for you! Everything is FREE!

IF YOU ARE ABLE TO DONATE: Please ONLY bring clean donations to Free Store events.

NOTE: Please do not donate books to Free Store.

This month we are especially seeking donations of household goods, small appliances, and hygiene products. Cold weather gear such as jackets, sweaters, hoodies, blankets, hats, gloves, sleeping bags, etc. is also needed.

Medical items for use in home care such as blood pressure cuffs, pulse oximeters, neck, back, and limb braces, mobility aids, pill organizers, etc. are also appreciated.

The things we ALWAYS need are: menstrual products, toothpaste and toiletries, socks, boxers, make-up, plus-size clothing, small and extra small men's shoes, large and extra large women's shoes, binders, breast forms, wigs, home items, and blankets.

We prefer that donations are dropped off on the day of the event between 12 noon and the store closing (5pm). If that isn't possible for you, please message us here via the Gainesville Free Store Facebook page and we may be able to arrange a drop off/pick up at an alternate time.

**Please NOTE that the CMC will not accept any donations for Free Store during non-Free Store hours. They simply do not have the space to store donated items for us.**
