     Enjoyed myself as always. Loved meeting new gals, socializing with my old swap friends, eating, drinking, and being merry -- all that while trying on some new duds and having fun. That's what it's all about -- fun, ladies! It's supposed to be FUN!

     The swap was very good as always. It was well organized and people were friendly. I was able to find some good items that will wear this season. Thank you everybody for the stuff you shared and especially the organizer, Loren, for making this happen and being so welcoming.

     I think it's amazing what they accomplish and it's outstanding how many women walked away happy and excited about their finds. Hooray for saving the environment AND our pockets!

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     Great group, and the rules are pretty great too. At first I was not sure how it would all work, but the limit of stuff you could bring and take did remind me of the fact that this is not just about clothing and "getting" stuff, but that it's all so about cutting down waste and only bringing things into your life that you would use. Wonderful!

     Had a great time at the last swap. Found several items that worked for Christmas outfits, as well as items to give to friends and family. Thanks, Loren, for organizing this and always doing such a great community service!

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     I think it was a great mix of ladies. The age range ran the gamut and it was really nice to see the variety of tastes and styles. I'm looking forward to the next one!

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     I think it is very good but, definitely there needs to be a segregation of sizes. For example, larger blouses to the right side of the table medium middle and small to the left. I look forward to the next event and am happy to help out in anyway.

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     The swap was fun and great. Paying a few bucs to get in and bringing some stuff to swap. Coming home with stuff that's new to you. How can anyone go wrong? 5 stars from me! :) I've been to other swaps this is definitley organized!

     I really enjoyed it and would definitely come again.

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     Swaps are a fun way to clean out your closets & accumulate some new things, without any major cash. It's also nice to get things for free, without waiting on long lines to pay.

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     I think it would be very cool if we were able to donate the leftover clothes to some needy group...although I understand that would take planning and legwork. I don't know if everyone would feel comfortable with the Salvation Army's mission. Just a suggestion.

     To Make New Friends and Get Wonderful Clothes!

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     If you want to save money on clothes or if you're bored with the clothes you have, this is an ideal group to be a part of.

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     I'm glad I finally got to attend. The best part was seeing my clothes picked up by others and knowing they will get worn. However, I agree that quality control would be a good idea if this is even possible. I brought home some items and realized too late that there were tears, broken clasps, or cigarettes odors.

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     Lovely bunch of swapping ladies! 

    on Aug 25, 2010.

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     I think it's a great idea. Someone's something old is someone else's something new, without spending any money!

     It's a great way to meet nice people and get great clothes.

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     Its a waste to throw away your clothes and shoes that are in wearable condition. Someone else could be very happy at the SWAP to find them. Girls love to find deals. You cannot get a better deal than finding good homes for your stuff and really GOOD stuff for FREE. And hey the leftover goes to charity. Even the entrance fees from the last swap went to a church. Its a win win and win situation for everybody. Unless you come with a stinky attitude to just get get get and not really give. That is to all the people who sometimes bring really torn up and not even smelly but reeking clothes. Yay to everyone who brings something that they would give to a good friend. Its very friendly swapping actually, and somewhat frenzied but always polite swapping. Hope this helps to get an idea about the swap.

  • Five Boroughs Clothing Swap

     Because there are way too many clothes in the world and we need to use the ones we have already, over, and over, and over! Quality lasts!
