Above, volunteer at the South Portland Swap Shop and city resident Sandy Farrin. Residents can use the shop as a means of discarding used but functional items, as well as picking them up. According to the city website, “Residents may drop off items that have some useful life in them as well as pick something up that might be of use. Although it is called a swap shop, residents do not need to drop an item off to take an item from the shop.” Right, Theresa Coyle of North Yarmouth browses with a friend from South Portland for something to bring home.
