Palisades Freestore


  1. This Freestore is hosted by Pacific Palisades Community Association – 2106 Aamanu St, Pearl City
  2. Hours: 24/7, except for extreme weather.
  3. Anyone and everyone can participate.
  4. *No one works at the Freestore. It is autonomous, meaning all users are expected to contribute to its maintenance. (an·ar·chism /ˈanərˌkizəm/ n. the organization of society on a voluntary, cooperative basis without recourse to force or compulsion.)
  5. Keep the area clean and neat so the association continues to support the store.
  6. Plants and seeds only, no household, no cardboard, no plastic containers.
  7. TURN OFF YOUR CAR. Global warming is bad enough as is.
  8. Do not take the containers holding the plants unless they are potted plants.
  9. Contributions of any buckets, old mailboxes or covered plastic bins are much welcomed.
  10. If you drop off plants, label what they are. DO NOT LEAVE DISEASED PLANTS.
  11. If you are a Facebook 808 Green Thumbs group members, make a post on what you drop off.
  12. Respect neighbors.
  13. Many many more Freestores are needed. Start one!!

     Sorry, Free Store does not accept checks, credit cards, paypal, venmo or cash…

FREE STORES are anti-capitalist and *anarchist. They are permanent spaces for autonomous exchange. Nothing is for sale. They are not owned, managed, monitored, or surveilled. There is no paid staff. They only keep going if the people who use them keep them going. Unlike Santa and the State, Free Stores give equally to the naughty and the nice. No one’s labor is exploited and no tax-deductions are offered. They are, in all of the word’s various definitions, free.

     TAKE = act without shame
     LEAVE = share without condition
     WHATEVAS = trust without apology
