Calgary Opens Free Store Where the Only Currency Accepted is a Smile

Check out the TheSmileShop in Rundle where the only currency is a smile. It started in January and is starting to blow up. Every Saturday the store hands out free clothing, books, household items and even beds in exchange for nothing more than a smile. It operates by donation and they’re looking to open second store in Forest Lawn.

TheSmileShop is open every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 2640 Rundlelawn Road N.E. They accept small household items and clean, lightly used clothes as donations every Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. FULL STORY
