Never mind its name, the Brooklyn Free Store is pretty much the anti-store. According to the New York Times, "organizers say that it offers an alternative to mainstream capitalism." The makeshift, flea market-esque project set up under a blue tent, sells nothing, but offers everything.

With a give-and-take mentality, the Brooklyn Free Store is almost like a garage sale, but with no prices. Drop off anything you want to share or pick up anything you're interested in. Clothing, books, canned foods and toaster ovens are all up for grabs a this New York shop. With no official hours and always-open doors, the Brooklyn Free Store is community living at its best.
