Sharing Tables: What are They?

September 29th, 2015
by The People Who Share

For those who’ve ever attended a It's All Share event, you’ve probably come across one of our Sharing Tables.  But what exactly are they?

The concept is very simple: we encourage people to bring objects they no longer have use for and ask them to take something from the table in return.  Think clothing, books, music, decorative objects, jewellery, food – and anything else easily transportable.  With over £3.5 trillion worth of stuff going unused globally, our tables are a way of sharing for the better good.

Easy, free and fun, many who come to our tables - OuiShare Fest to Brighton's Summer Festival - have left with some real treasures. Check out some of our sharing highlights below:
