A social media brainstorm turns into festive giving and collecting shopping opportunity.

The Buy Nothing Holiday Shop is a gift economy community experiment and brainchild of the leader of the Buy Nothing Key Peninsula Facebook Group.

The holiday shop will be held on Sunday, Dec. 8 at the Lake Holiday Club House, 13818 Sandy Point East KPN.

There is no buying, no selling and no trading.

Donations of clothes, household items, toys, books and anything else is welcome and will be accepted prior to the event from Noon to 3 p.m. Priority will be given to those who have donated items to pick some free items before the shop opens to the public between 3 -5 p.m.

The group will also be collecting food for the Holiday Food Pantry, for those in need.

A fully-decorated artificial Christmas tree will be raffled, at no cost.

For information or to make a donation contact Kristie Hilley at Kristiehilley@gmail.com or Leslie Mays at Leslie84wa@gmail.com.
