Great idea and a nice way to build community. I participated and there was much more than just "stuff" that was exchanged that day. There were wonderful personal exchanges also.

There are more exchanges, shares and swaps planned this summer. You can get on the mailing list by sending a request to transitionpaloalto at gmail dotcom

This was covered very nicely. I participated and I felt that the spirit of giving and friendship was alive and well.
