Clothing & Costume Exchange - Spring Edition

The last event was a HUGE SUCCESS! Over 220 people came through and had a great time, enjoyed free massage, reiki, energy work, tarot, tea, bubblies, potluck, and of course, made off with AWESOME CLOTHES. Everyone, including the men, all left with bags upon bags of fashionable goodies and fun costume wear!

This clothing exchange will be focused on clean, undamaged, fashionable, wearable items (for men and women).

- COSTUMES (if they've been worn to utter destruction, feel free to bring them, but they will not count toward your admission item total).

- SPRING and SUMMER garments (aside from costumes)! Please try to keep to the season requested so that we can build current, useful wardrobes for each other.

- KIDS clothes. For parents, there will be a separate table to swap kids clothes. However, these items will not count toward the entry item quota, so please come prepared with 20 of your own items. This table is simply for your benefit. ♥

There is an entire wall of mirrors available for trying on clothes if you don't mind being in the open. For those who like more privacy, there are private areas for both men and women to try clothes on.
"SAFE ZONES" - If items are on the stage, in the cubbies, or in the room marked "Safe Zone," they are OFF LIMITS. If you are seen "shopping" these areas, you will be asked to leave. You may leave your things/swap scores here, but at your own risk.

MOST ADVISED: leave as much as you can at home, leave your jacket in the car if possible, and go buy a fanny pack if you need to! Items may walk off, so keep them on you, in a safe place, or don't bring them at all. Thank you!

PLEASE SHARE THIS EVENT AND INVITE YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND COWORKERS! The more people we have involved, the better the selection and the more fun we will all have! ♥

***PLEASE CARPOOL AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!***
DETAILS of ADMISSION:
- $10 cover with 20 items or more brought to exchange
- $20 cover with less than 20 items brought to exchange
- "Express Shopper" hours: Come between 3-5pm for half off admission cost. Item quota still applies.
- Children under the age of 10 = free with accompanying adult.
- Youth cover fee, ages 10 to 17 = half off admission
- Ages 18+ = full price

FREEBIES! There are free drinks, services, and more, but please remember to bring EXTRA CASH to tip the wonderful volunteers, bartenders, and service providers! ♥

EVENT RUNS FROM 12:30PM - 5:30PM.
EVERY ENTRY COMES WITH A DOOR PRIZE TICKET!
Must be present to win.

Partial profits will be donated to OmCulture to better the space and give us all a place to encourage community events and involvement!
You're welcome to donate as much clothing as you'd like.
Each person will be allowed to take away 20 lbs of clothing/costumes. Why the limit? The event in January had no limit, and some people that came later felt there were not as many options. I want to make this fair for everyone to get a shot at incredible pieces.

All clothing left over will be donated to SightConnection, enhancing the abilities of people with vision loss to live active, independent lives (http://www.sightconnection.org/).

    A blast as usual. Spring still means winter clothes around here and I found three great jackets and coats. Not a big enough table of accessories in my opinion but that certainly didn't dampen my mood.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
