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.

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.
