Plus Size Swap & Shop (FREE!!) and Potluck

Hi Plus & Proud Ladies - so far I believe this is just for the ladies, we'll let you guys know if we hear about one for men's clothing sometime.

We found this group on Facebook, where it's called: angeljean48 · Kansas women plus size clothing exchange

They are having a Clothing & Accessories Swap and Shop & Potluck this Thursday, November 21st (sorry about the short notice), at 6:30 PM, in the storefront A Touch of Fun, a store at the Great Mall in Olathe.  It looks like on the map of the Great Mall, the store is right next to the Burlington Coat Factory, so that's probably the best way to enter to get to the store.  Michell also said you can come through the back door loading dock, dock #8, next to the Burlington Coat Factory.

A Touch of Fun (store at The Great Mall in Olathe), their Party Room - 20213 W 151st St,  Olathe, Kansas 66202

I believe that Burlington Coat Factory is on East side of the Mall (please let me know if I'm wrong), and that LaQuinta hotel, Days Inn, and UMB Bank are all in the parking lot of the same side of the mall... to help you get your bearings :)

If you are lost or need directions, call or text Lana, cell:[masked]-9480.

Please bring:  A snack or hot dish to share.  Clothes size 1x to 10x that you no longer want, and any accessories, shoes, etc you no longer want, to give away in the exchange.  Drinks, cups, plates, silverware, etc will be provided.

PLEASE RSVP ACCURATELY - ONLY SAY YOU CAN MAKE IT IF YOU WILL REALLY BE THERE - THIS IS NOT OUR EVENT - OTHER PEOPLE ARE ORGANIZING, THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING CONSIDERATE! :)

From Michell Pooler, Swap Organizer:
Nov 21 ( a thursday night) at 6:30 is We will do a pot luck dinner/snacks.  Please bring stuff you no longer want or need - this can be any thing beside clothes.  We eat and swap.  How the swap works:  each person takes turn showing what they brought, if you want it shout out "Me!".  If no one else wants it,  you take it, if more then one you work it out.  It a lot of fun getting new things and meeting new friends.

My cell number is[masked] please let me know if you are coming so I can plan I have the drinks, all paper goods, and one hot dish.

Norma Sappenfield created Plus Size Clothing Exchange group where plus-sized women can come and swap women's plus size clothing 1x and up.

Norma says:  I know how hard it is to find Women's plus size clothing I figured I would create a group where we could all come together and swap women's plus size clothing. 


Do business at your own risk-I am not responsible for deals, trades gone awry. Overland Park, Lenexa, Bonner springs, surrounding areas,

We meet every 3 months or so and swap clothes we no longer can wear, some are brand new. we would love to have some new people join us this month. we do a pot luck dinner and talk
and have a great time.  we also exchange shoes, etc. any thing you don't need anymore.  So clean out your closet, bring all the clothing you bought and they just did not fit right or that gift you got and hate it some one will love it.  If you would like to join us I will give you the info.  We do sizes for 1X to 10x.  If you are interested contact [masked]

    OMGoodness! yes I know how it is! you are all of 20 miles north of me but you might as well be in Hoboken, New Jersey! just kidding. but I started sorting yesterday and came across some nice ladies and men's things. I have a lot to go through today. I took some things to the Cross Lines outreach thrift store which is the community service organization where Cindy volunteers. I will have more when I take her there on Friday.
    anyway I filled an 18 gallon tote with clothes for the next swap and for a friend in McLouth. and I hope to fill another tote today. and btw, I am kind of the way from KCI to Olathe if you take I-435 south.

    this is an event I have been hoping for but I will have to pass. gas and time are both short and am working on other plans like trying to get to Time Out on Friday. we have been working on that since we joined Plus & Proud. maybe next time around the event will not be so far south. like in Lenexa or Shawnee.
    Kimberly! what hotel? are you close to me? (78th and I-70) I still have the Garth Brooks sweatshirt and 2 G. B. t-shirts that are nice and all 3 are 1X. in fact I planned to go through all the leftover Garage Sale stuff hanging in my garage and hall closet today (other plans ^) if I can get them to you, maybe you can make yourself some good trades. I am just going to give most of it to a thrift store no matter if it is good or less than good.

    I would love to go to this, but living out of the hotel I have a bare minimum of clothes and what not here with me. Sadly I have a ton of stuff back home I would love to do this with. Bringing food is not a problem but I have no clothes to contribute. Is it Ok just to come for the food and a social outing?

      Kim - I think it would be perfectly fine for you to bring a dish and attend, I have plenty of clothes I can bring, and just act like they're yours! I will RSVP "yes" on Facebook for you :)

    • Kimberly B

      Thank Lana. I am looking forward to this.
