    Got extra items laying around the shop that you can no longer use?

    Well someone may need just that thing to help complete a Build.

    This is the place to give those items away or pick up something that you need!

    The idea here is a simple one. Reuse,Reduce, Recycle.

    1) ABSOLUTELY NO SELLING ALLOWED -- items must be free or offered in trade
    2) First Come, First Serve
    3) Giver and Receiver work out shipping costs among themselves
    4) Be Polite
    5) When item is no longer available, please update prefix on the title to 'SOLD'
    6) Refusal to adhere to the rules may result in suspension from OpenBuilds.com

    **OpenBuilds is in no way affiliated with these PRIVATE transactions. The items being offered have not been reviewed by OpenBuilds. Items may be used, untested, or inoperable upon arrival. Proceed at your own risk.**

    It might be interesting to have FreeStore sections listed by country. Nobody wants a free switch with 20$ shipping fees :)

    It would be great! Shipping cost is a real issu if both traders are not living in the same country.
