  • home energy audit
  • dried fruit arrangements
  • dried flower center pieces

    How to participate in the “Money Free Shopping Spree”
    The “Money Free Shopping Spree” is a Holiday celebration of gifting without money currency consumerism. There are many things that can make more meaningful gift giving than what has become the consumer driven form of gifting.
    The “Money Free Shopping Spree” has 3 trading categories:
    Food Crafts: Items that you have expertise in or have done many times at home
    Art Crafts: Items to cheer up the holidays as well as enjoyed any time of the year
    Services: This is a very popular gift item that can incorporate resourcefulness and imagination; please create smaller paper sized gift certificates.
    Use your imagination and remember to use a sustainable/holiday theme. Try to determine$40 equity in your item. Don’t worry about being able to trade. Your first trade will be prearranged.

    Money Free Shopping Spree Potluck..
    You are invited to participate in the potluck dinner preceding the Money Free Shopping Spree, 6:30pm at the High Point Neighborhood House, 6400 Sylvan Way S.W.
    We please ask that you bring reusable eating utensils and plates for yourself and company. We also ask that you would take the utensils and plates home with you after the evening’s event for cleaning at home.

    If you have garden supplies to offer feel free to provide what you have in abundance. If you are preparing an item from local stores and markets last names beginning with A-L bring salads and deserts, last names starting with M-Z bring entrees.
    Looking forward to seeing you at the second annual “Money Free Shopping Spree” where you are only as wealthy as you are resourceful.
