Yes, Everything is Free
The Media FreeStore is a project of Transition Town Media. We provide items completely for free to all members of our community and rely on donations and volunteers to keep our doors open. Our FreeStore has been featured on Shareable, as well as other websites devoted to a new kind of economy. Please come for a visit! We welcome donations of gently-used items, except for clothing, provided it can be carried by one person. All items in the Store are free. You are welcome to take whatever you like or need. In this way we keep things out of landfills, support a reuse ethic, and help one another without the use of currency. Find out more about the Gift Economy here. We welcome monetary donations.
We are located in the First Church Media building on the State Street side, 350 West State Street, in Media. There is no phone at this location. Our current hours are:
Shopping: Wednesdays and Saturdays 10AM–2PM
Donations: Wednesdays 4–8PM and Sundays 12–4PM
Hours are subject to change based on weather conditions and volunteer availability. Please do not leave items in front of the store at any time.
Please watch our Facebook page for up-to-the-minute news. Thank you for your understanding and continued support!
What We Accept Donor & Shopper Guidelines How to Volunteer
We accept small household items no larger than what one person can carry. Food and clothing can be given to the food/clothing pantry also located at the back of the First Church Media building. Please contact the Church for their schedule. For a full list of what we can accept and not accept, see this page.
Many people are unfamiliar with our guidelines for donors and shoppers, with what we accept or our hours. So, the FreeStore Steering Committee has worked to make all of that information clear.
We welcome your feedback.
We are currently accepting volunteers who would like to join our amazing team. Flexible you-choose shifts. Training is fun and easy. Fill out and submit online or print and submit via email, text or drop off during store hours. Application also available upon request at the store. See details at the top of the form.
