About

The Birmingham Free Store is an art project and anarchist direct action in North Birmingham. It is simply a store where everything is free. Anyone can walk in and take anything in stock for free with no judgement, qualifications, or expectations. The Free Store imagines a world where shopping is an anti-capitalist act and where no one is denied the things they need or want because they dont have the money. Everything is free because its already yours.

Thanks to the generous support of comrades and friends in Birmingham and around the country, we were able to open and operate the free store five days a week for 4 months. In that time we gave away countless meals, clothes, furniture, diapers, books, art supplies, period products, movies, plan b, and so much else.

Unfortunately, we had to close after our landlord let the building flood several times while working on the roof. We lost a majority of our stock to water damage, and moved eveything else into storage.
But that cant stop us, and we'll be back before u known it!! We have found a new building in the same neighborhood and are preparing to reopen there in October, just in time for Halloween.

In order to get our new space up and running, we’re asking the community to chip in and help fund the store. Y'all got us into our first location, and we're confident you can get us into our next one.

Your regular monthly donations are paying for:
- rent and utilities
- construction on the new building
- supplies to serve regular meals
- general moving costs
- our storage unit

We’ll be providing regular updates on this page for our supporters about events and features that are upcoming.
