The Wellington Timebank No Shizz Gift Shop is back again this December!
The aim of the Pop Up No Shizz Gift Shop is to support local artists/crafters and provide alternative Christmas shopping options, reducing consumerism around Christmas time. It challenges the way we buy our gifts by offering them for Time credits (the time it took to make them) plus the material cost (the physical cost of making the gift).
There will be arts and crafts, sustainable cosmetics and toys, jewellery and much more!
It's an opportunity for Timebankers to showcase their creative talents and make a bit of spare cash. The No Shizz Gift Shop is a Christmas gift market for Timebankers who can buy at Timebank price (TB Credits + Material Cost) and non Timebankers who pay the (very fair) full retail price designated.
So join up to the Timebank if you want some sweet bargains!
Timebankers also offer vouchers for their services (sold for Time credits) so you can give the voucher as a gift to someone or use it yourself. These range from massage to cooking, dance lessons to haircuts.
The 2021 No Shizz Giftshop will be held from 9am-3pm at 2A Green St, Newtown Community and Cultural Centre.
If you are a Timebank Member and would like to have your crafts sold at the No Shizz Gift Shop, or would like some more info email firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you all there for some sustainable and local gift shopping!
