Clothing swap events provide great opportunity to make space and clear out your closets. Bring your quality, gently worn items to give away, and find what you didn’t know you were looking for!
All ages, eras, sizes, and types of items will be accepted.
Accepted items include:
* Women’s, men’s, and/or children’s clothing
* Craft Supplies
* Small Housewares (no furniture please)
Items must be clean, in good condition, and likely to be valued by others.
Let’s make this swap super.
Components of a great swap:
We have a few simple guidelines to keep the event running smoothly:
☆ Basically, attendees are invited to bring at least ten items of good quality things to exchange your contributions for a selection of new to you items.
☆ Event admission must be paid prior to swapping. Volunteers and kids under 12 get into the event at no charge.
☆ Help spread the word, the more the merrier, with more selection to choose from.
☆ Bring your own reusable bag to take your new items home.
☆ When you arrive: Welcome, c’mon in! Advance drop off to have your clothing donations sorted will be offered between 12:30-1pm, then you are welcome to drop in anytime between 1-3pm to get your swap on.
☆ Arrive in good time for the best selection.
☆ Leave your own personal items (water bottles, purses, jackets) somewhere safe and close where they will not be mistaken for swappable items.
☆ Mingle with friends, and connect with other clothing swap participants, while checking out all the selection of items to be swapped. You are welcome to help yourself to a selection of what you like best.
☆ There are full length mirrors in the bathrooms, so ensure items are a good fit, or put back for someone else to enjoy.
☆ Afterwards you are welcome to bring your items home to wash and dry, then enjoy!
☆ Clothing swaps contribute to sharing resources in an ethical, no cost, enviro-friendly way. All remaining items will be donated to benefit a local charity.
Let’s work together to create yet another great community building event!
“I’ll be going through my clothes more regularly now and wearing them more often as I am downsizing the items I have and being more selective in what I bring home to wear.” ~ past participant
“I heard the same thing come up – which was that folks were so happy to give their stuff to people they can see and who will enjoy it and know it will be loved. I couldn’t agree more – keep it in the family so to speak, the city family of people we can see and enjoy them enjoying our stuff! It lives on. Looking forward to the next one!” ~ past participant
