**A newly redesigned space**


The Oberlin Free Store is located in the basement of Asia House (024). It is open to anyone who wants to donate or take items for free. We have kitchenware, dormware, clothes, craft supplies, books, and more.

How to get free stuff

Come by during our weekly open hours during the academic school year. Grab what interests you and sign out. Signing out allows us to get an idea how many items were taken in a given week.

Yes, most everything is free! If it is labeled "not free" not take! These items are used by the Free Store, such as tables and bookshelves that display the free items.

How to donate

Drop by during our open hours to donate items. Please only bring us functional and clean items that we can feel good about passing along to others.

Can't make it during our hours? We also have a purple donation bin available in Wilder Main (135 West Lorain Street). Or, you can e-mail or call us and we can schedule a time to meet.
