Summer Ladies Clothing Swap & Men join for a Cocktail Party Afterward!(8:00 pm)

  • June 22, 2013 · 5:30 PM

The cold winter month's are behind us and spring has sprung and now summer is upon us. What a great way to Welcome Summer than to clean out your drawers and closets and gather all those unused, unworn, or gently worn items of clothing, shoes, purses, hats, scarfs, jackets, jewelery and more and swapping them with others. Bring what you no longer use or want or wear, it might be new or gently used. Your unwanted stuff could be another ladies new prize possession  and visa versa. Her items might be just what you were looking for to enhance your summer wardrobe.  So purge the old and bring in the new! It's swap time!!

If you are like me you probably have many items around the house that you no longer like, want, need or use. Or you’re just tired of them and would like to make a change. So what do you do with your old stuff, you can donate, toss or you can SWAP it with others who might find your discards their treasures. Bring your household items, pictures, home décor, unused cosmetics & skin care products, jewelry, perfume, frames, gently used clothing, shoes, purses all in good clean condition, coffee, tea, dishes, games, books, CD’s, DVD’s you get the picture don’t you? We ladies will have a cocktail/swap party and then after we are all done swapping we will clean up and get ready for the next phase of the evening a co-ed summer cocktail party.

Please dress Summer Casual Chic!

This is being hosted by Shelly at her home in Livermore and her address will be emailed closer to the date for those who will be attending.

Ladies bring: Your stuff to swap- and an appetizer & beverage to share for the cocktail & evening party.

After the swap is over, men you are all invited to come over and join us for a Welcome Summer Cocktail party. The swap is for the ladies only so men please do not arrive prior to 8:00 p.m.

Men bring: An appetizer & beverage to share for the cocktail party.

This is limited to 50 ladies and gents total so please do not RSVP yes just to hold a space if you are fairly sure you will not be able to attend. There will be a manual wait list after the first 50 slots fill up between three meetup groups. Alate Events & Adventures 45+ (Tina's group), Bay Area Single Adventures 45+ish (Mary's group)  &  Over 30's Single Mingle (Jane's group) It's going to be a bit tricky for us in regards to the RSVP's for this as we would like to be able to have a good balance of women and men attend the after party, so be patient with this.  I may need to move men and or women to the waitlist if the RSVP's get to heavy with one gender.  GUEST PRIORITY WILL BE GIVEN TO THOSE WHO SIGN UP WITH MY GROUP ALATE EVENTS & ADVENTURES

**Also only RSVP with one group. Ladies the preference for this party is if you  come to swap then you will be staying for the after party. There will be future ladies only swaps that you can attend if this is your only interest.

Approximate timeline

5:30-6:30 Ladies who are swapping your items need to be brought during this time. The items will be sorted by type for ease of swapping. While the items are being sorted ladies this will be a great time for you to mix and mingle and get to know each other, enjoy appetizers and cocktails.

6:30-7:30 Swap time

7:30-8:00 Clean up the leftover swap items and freshen up for the evening party

8:00-12:00 Men are invited to join us for an appetizer-cocktail party to welcome in the summer. (Men please do not arrive before 8:00 p.m.)

12:00-12:30 Clean up so that our hostess has minimal to do when we leave.

Party ends at midnight, we clean up and we all say our goodbye’s and thank our lovely hostess for opening up her home to us and all be gone by 12:30.

    Fun time at the swap/cocktail party yesterday. Thanks so much to Shelly for opening her lovely home to all of us, such a warm and welcoming hostess. Great swap stuff, I sure scored, and thanks to the guys who showed up and honored their RSVP's. Thank you Kathy for all the help and hauling all the donations and me too. I hope you all had a great time, I sure did. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Remember to get out and SPREAD YOUR WINGS! We only have one life to live so Carpe Diem!!

    Hi Everyone, the party is just five days away. Please make sure your RSVP is current. If you sign up I know you are planning to show up. Looking forward to the swap and cocktail party. See you all on Saturday. Address will be emailed out at the end of the week.

    Had a change of plans.Have a great time!

    June 16, 2013

  • Tina

    There are now 66 folks signed up for the party, no more will be moved off any of the waitlist.The plan is to have about 50 maximum since it's being hosted in Shelly's home. So the extra 16 allows for those notorious last minute cancels and no shows. If your plans change then be considerate and update your RSVP. If you have any questions then contact me. I'm hoping for nice warm summer evening in Livermore on the 22nd. Ladies don't forget your swap items, food and beverage, Men don't forget your food and beverage. We'll see you all soon!

    June 12, 2013

  • Tina

    Ladies and Gents please take the time to read the details above in regards to this event. Shelly's address will be provided on Friday the 21st via email so be on the look out for it. If you plans have changed then kindly update your RSVP. I'm looking forward to the swap and after welcome summer cocktail party. See you all on the 22nd if not before....Tina
