Let's Plan a Personal Swap Party!

Hello, all.

Would anyone be interested in hosting our own swap party? Beyond being economical, eco-friendly, and an excuse to clean out your closet, a swap party with friends is far more fun than a yard sale with strangers. Friends with similar taste. For a good variety of merchandise, eight people is a manageable number, though anywhere from 3 to 20 is doable

If everyone that's interested brought one friend with some fashionable items, we could possibly meet up in a neutral location. If everyone brought 15-20 items cleaned, pressed, and tagged on a garment rack ($5.99 @ Target) this could be a fun event.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions, or suggestions. I'd be more than happy to organize the event. :)

    I agree with Jen.... I dont think ironing is necessary.

    April 8, 2011

  • Jen

    I'd like to join too...but have been to other swaps where we just put everything on a sofa and went to town...I always wash my clothes after I swap so pressing them is added work...I would like to join if pressing and garment rack aren't needed...Thanks!!

    Sounds great! I have things to swap and would be interested, but not if I have to press things (would take hours for me!;) or buy a garment rack, which I'd then need to get rid of. I've had swaps before and found it's good to have at least 12 people. Also, I don't require pressing or tagging (what would the tag be for?). It can be fun to just throw the clothes on a couch and then dig through the pile. That way, even a fairly small place can work. I used to hold them in a small studio apartment.
