See that? That word “Free?” That’s the sweetest word in the language, that is. And free is what everything in The Free Store is, all day, all week, all 18 days of the festival.

The Free Store is new this year, part of Capital Fringe’s green commitment — more on which later, time permitting — and it’s all about re-using, recycling, reducing your footprint.

In other words, it’s basically a swap shop. Bring something, take something: books, CDs, even clothes (if they’re not too stanky). Rumor has it there’s a TV in there somewhere.

Oh, where is it? At the corner of 7th Street and Florida New York Ave., NW, which makes it hard to miss. Check it out, and come back to the comments to let us know whether the shopping is any good.
