Champagne & Cupcake Swishing Party 3. Lunch provided. Just bring your trades!

  • Oct 26, 2013 · 12:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I just came across this idea and thought 'the 4L Fashionistas would love to swish some clothes out.'


What is a Swishing Party? Click here http://www.gone-ta-pott.com/how-to-arrange-a-swishing-party.html

Accessories, handbags, shoes and clothes!!!


Swishing is the name given to a party organized to swap second hand clothes. It is the latest trend and has become so popular as it is a great way to save money. It is also eco friendly and fun.

Swishing allows you to recycle clothes instead of throwing them away minimizing the environmental impact caused by the manufacture and disposal of textiles and clothing.

 

 

The aim of a swish party is to get together a group of people each with one or more item of clothing or accessories in good condition. At the end of the swishing party each person should go home with at least one item that they really love.

Looking for a location for this event. Any volunteers?

    Thank you all so very much ladies for the kind words. However I have to give credit fully where it is highly due, alot of effort goes into organizing, prepping, and ensuring all details are taken care of to ensure an event is successful. Hearing all the positive feedback I think we can all agree this was an AMAZING event. I did not host or organize this event in particular I only attended. Janice put a lot of time and effort into arranging this incredible meetup and Danielle puts alot of time and heart on a regular basis to keep the group going. We will be having more meetups and I look forward to seeing each and every one of you again, thank you!! XOXO

    Look up 'Hostess with the Mostess' and you will see Janice's picture in the dictionary. She is so generous, thoughtful, and has such beautiful taste! The dessert bar was amazing, the taco grill was yummy, and the champagne overflowing! Thank you so much Janice for being so gracious and absolutely lovely! Her house is like an LA getaway!

  • Cambria F.

    On more question... what are the rules or guidelines? Does each person leave with the same amount of items they brought to swish by agreeing and swapping each individual item with someone else that has something you want? Or is it like you bring your items and everyone looks the selection over and it becomes a first come first serve sort of thing? - Thank you

    October 24, 2013

    • Janice

      I would hope you go home with same number of items swished but we are all new to this so we will make it as fair as it can be!!

      @Joy...yes even if the cat is in a different room. I once went to someones house for the 1st time and they kept a cat in a different room. After being there 45 mins or so I started feeling weird. My throat was closing up and was hard for me to breathe. I dont play when it comes to cats and me not being able to breathe. Soooo yeah, next time. Thanks Janice for sharing this information beforehand.

      @Janice - As far as the order of events is concerned, are you serving lunch before or after swishing? I may be arriving at 1 p.m. or so, so I was wondering. Also, do you know where we should be parking? Thanks a bunch if you can reply! ::) :)

    • Danielle E

      Just bring items that you would give to goodwill or items that you never wore or don't care to wear anymore. It can be shoes, accessories, clothes, anything! It's so much fun to trade and see your items get appreciated by another lovely lady!
