The Live Oak Friends Meeting Quaker Barter Fairs offer the community an opportunity to share and participate in the practices of Simplicity, Stewardship and Earth Care.
Services and talents can be shared and traded, as well as items from overflowing closets or abandoned hobbies.
When participants arrive, they may set up a blanket or table with items to trade/barter. No money, fees or payment transactions are used at Quaker Barter Fairs. Name tags are provided for participants as well as for their table. It’s a good idea to make a sign to advertise any services you want to offer, as well as what items or services you are seeking.
There is always a “Free Table” for shared items. Free Table items will be donated to a local charity after the Barter Fair so that no one takes home stuff they intended to share.
This November 26th will feature:
* Live Music by Jim Pressley 2-3 PM
* children’s toy exchange
* plant swap/seed swap
* activities for children & family)

Example: Our Childrens' Religious Education Committee will host a Welcome Activity using Cloves and Oranges. Children create a pattern with the cloves, sticking them into the orange. Your child may take their orange home where the aroma makes the home (or their room) smell good for the holiday.
