Kalaureio Barter Bazaar on October 21, 22



Cash in your “kalaureios”—or run up some credit—by trading items you no longer want at a bazaar organized by the Kalaureio Barter and Solidarity Initiative on October 20 (11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and October 21 (10 a.m.to 3 p.m.) at the former post office on the ground floor of the Town Hall.
The “kalaureio”, an alternative barter currency, is named after the ancient site of Kalaureia and the larger of the two island comprising Poros was launched earlier this summer by a local citizens’ group. Both goods—used items for trade—as well as handmade or other products and services are assigned barter values and traded through the kalaureio system.
The kalaureio isn’t intended to replace the euro but as with all barter systems offers members an informal credit mechanism for exchanging items or work.
Items and services available for trade are listed on the Initiative’s blog (http://kalavrio.blogspot.com), along with information on joining the Initiative network. Trading is limited to members but the bazaar is an excellent opportunity to find out how the bartering system works and sign up.
