Flea Market

If you need to buy clothes and things but don't have a lot of money, look in a flea market (Finnish: kirpputori). That's where people sell things they don't want. Things are still good, but they're not new. Prices are always lower, and it's fun to look at everything.

LahtiLIFE has a flea market, too. People in the church give their things to LahtiLIFE, and LahtiLIFE gives them to you for free!

If you need something, tell a LahtiLIFE team leader before or after the Sunday meetings. They'll help you.
