Q: What is a Free-Cycle?
A: It’s like a yard sale, but free!

Q: Will there be things for sale?
A: In the spirit of reduce, reuse, recycle anything registered on the official map is a free-offering. There should be no exchange of monies.

Q: Is this a ticketed event?
A: NO! This is a free public event, and there are no tickets needed to attend. Anyone claiming an offer on tickets should be considered a spammer.

Q: Where is the Map?
A: The Map will be published here and on our facebook event page on 5/16/2022

Q: How to I register my free stuff?
A: You can register your home, here:

Q: Where do I start?
A: This is a self-guided “shopping” experience. Our recommendation is to get a beverage or some breakfast in the neighborhood and then pick a direction to walk- there will be plenty of homes! For the more detail oriented free-cycler, there will be listings of what each home is offering on the map, you can plot your way early, after the map is published on May 16th.

Q: Do I have to be from the neighborhood?
A: To Give items and be registered on the map, you should live within 2 blocks of the borders of Montrose, Clark, Winnemac & Damen avenues.

Q: What’s there to eat in Ravenswood?
A: Ravenswood is home to plenty of amazing restaurants. For a quick morning bite, we recommend our cafes like Spoken Cafe, Broken Cup Cafe, Dollop, River Valley Market, Groundswell Coffee Roasters, Sweet Moon, R&A Breadbakers, & La Boulangerie!
