Give-away shops (also called freeshops or free stores) are shops where you can bring things and take things away for free. They are not charity shops, so items are freely available, and there is no quid pro quo barter - you don't have to bring something to take something either. They are often run out of squats, or else rely on concessionary rent from landlords. Frequently, they have a social function which goes beyond exchange of goods, such as a focus of community, or offering a public space for other non-profit enterprises.
