Free for all

Le Cool magazine is my new best friend. It's like Time Out, but for people who don't have time to read through anything remotely irrelevant and can no longer see the benefit of communication that is paper-based. You will love it too, so subscribe - subscribe I tell you! 

To convince you of how relevant and wonderful it is, here is something I've casually copied and pasted from their latest issue - an insider pseudo shopping opportunity that's too good for all us rummagers, upcyclers and cheap-skates to possibly miss:

SHOPPING Non-Commercial House

Organise a cricket match with the passing bankers at the Old Spitalfields Market. Drink a stolen beer from Dirty Dick’s. Throw a step aerobics class on Liverpool Street Station’s escalators. Beg for a penny, to spend in the station toilets. Eat one of the free copies of the gutter press handed out at Bank. These are just some of the myriad things you can do for free in the City. Ok, they might be a little bit silly, but you haven’t heard my best proposal yet: The Non-Commercial House is indeed, a shop where everything is free; a space that promotes community without consumerism, in the heart of Europe’s centre of finance. People recycle stuff they don’t need (anything really) and you can simply pop in, have a cuppa tea and take what you need. And they don’t expect anything in return. Can you believe it? An uplifting glimpse of what the world could look like. / Marta
