Gosia Koscielak Studio & Gallery

1646 N. Bosworth

For the month of February Gosia Koscielak Studio & Gallery has become a free store, where you can pick up anything from a blender to an old prom dress without spending a dime. Customers are encouraged to donate their own castoffs or offer free services (haircuts, massages, lessons) for exchange, but taking something for nothing is fine too. The Free Store is open Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday from 11 AM to 6 PM and Wednesday and Thursday from 11 AM to 9 PM. This Saturday, February 10, there’s an opening party from 4 to 10 PM.
