The temporary free zone is until this Sunday evening, Salle Brassens, in Sète

Grosse affluence pour le premier jour de troc à la salle Brassens. L’opération se poursuit ce dimanche 26 mai. Midi Libre – Patrice Espinasse

Organized by Sel de Sète and Bassin de Thau, the Gratiferia continues until this Sunday, May 26, 6 p.m., at the Brassens room, on the principle of "give whoever wants, take whoever wants& ;quot;.

"It gets rid of it and then it a good deed !" Françoise has just left the Brassens room where she left glasses and clothes that she no longer needed. She wasn’t the only one! Inside, clothes, books, dishes, tools, household appliances and even a double bed bring happiness to those who need it.

Organized by Sel de Sète et du bassin de Thau, the Gratiferia was once again a great success this Saturday, May 25. Its principle: give whoever wants and take whoever wants. With something new this year: the simultaneity of barter and exchanges.

Giving objects a second life

This Sunday again, Brassens room, you can drop off from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. And take the objects from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. "The idea remains the same: give a second life to the objects, get rid of what you no longer need and thus make people happy. Except that this time, the objects arrive at the same time as they leave, explains Jade Carbonnier, member of the local Salt animation committee.

And this weekend of exchanges represents no less than 1.5 to 2 tonnes of donations. "There were up to 2.5 tonnes of objects brought in", recalls Jade Carbonnier. Several activities accompany this local exchange system: an exchange workshop in Spanish, pebble painting, a puzzle challenge, awareness of "zero waste& ;quot; and even a guaranteed musical atmosphere on stage. It’s until this Sunday at 6 p.m.!
