Clothing Swap (Kanata)

  • Aug 8, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Want to get new clothing for free?

Then join us for a clothing swap.

How the clothing swap will work: Everyone brings clothes they no longer want, but that still have some life left in them. We put them out so everyone can see. One-by-one we draw names and each person gets to pick one item at a time. This continues for many rounds until everyone is done.

At the end, we have a free-for-all and you take whatever it is that you want that is left. The left-over clothes go to a local charity of the hosts’ choice.

Please bring a pot luck snack to share.  The event will take about 2 hours and is usually very social. It is a great way to meet some new people, get some new clothes and make someone else very happy!

If you can not attend, you are welcome to make arrangements to donate your items to the swap.

This event is open to guests - please RSVP as (+1) in your RSVP.

This is a pot luck event

This event is free to attend

There will be no exchange or selling of items at this event -everything will be free.

ONCE THE LOCATION IS CHOSEN, the LOCATION will be emailed to those who RSVP "YES" (but general Ottawa area is mentioned in the title).

 

Try something new -- RSVP YES now to join us!

    Aggy, thank you so much for hosting! I had so much fun and got some great pieces. Too bad that so many ladies canceled the last minute, not fear to the organizer and the rest. Hope to see you ladies again at the next one!

      That happens a lot, it seems (I was the only one who showed up to an event in Kanata in December.)

    My apologies for my last minute cancellation- I have to stay late at the office which is in the East end and there's no way that I'm going to make it for 630 in the west end. Sorry! Have fun and see you next time!

    Hi Ladies,
    If anybody is driving by billings bridge and would be willing to give me a ride, I'd be grateful. It's about an hour and a half of bus travel for me to get to kanata.
    Thank you,
    Anna.

    Whenever I get back from my trip I am going to try and set up another clothing swap at my place, so if people don't end up making it to this one, or there still isn't room try and keep the last week of August/ beginning of September relatively free and I will try to arrange something at my place. Have fun!

    Hey folks, I see I'm waitlisted for this swap but I am the host!!! Just a a quick note, it's ladies only, I'm guessing? If yes, for those who are a little more... daring... bring a pair of shorts to try a new sport ;)

    PS: I also have some men's clothes and winter stuff to swap. I know, it's not winter yet, but you can't be too prepared

      Which is really too bad because I could probably accommodate an extra body or two without problem. My place isn't THAT big, but it's open, so it doesn't feel claustrophobic

      you are now "attending" aggy and you are now the host, so you can make any edits as you like :)

    Hi. FYI I have some size M-L mens clothes in addition to the size S-M women's clothes that I will be bringing. Looking forward to it!

  • Christine C.

    This will be my first experience with Swap Meet and I am really excited. I have a giant garbage bag of clothes that have been sitting in my closet for months! Can't wait to do some exchanging!

  • Emily N.

    I am so looking forward to this! I am working slowly on becoming a non-consumer and love the concept of clothing swaps!!

    2 · July 24, 2013

    • Ayn MacDonald (.

      That's why I started this group 3 years ago. I still buy, but now I'm aware of what I consume.

    The box in the closet is getting ready!!! :)
