Summer Fun Swap Meet

  • Jul 25, 2013 · 6:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hello, it's swap time again! To ensure everyone can participate with enough room we ask everyone to please limit your items to 30 per swap.

We have room for only 25 swappers at this event, so RSVP ASAP to reserve a seat. Please be sure to change your RSVP, including number of guests, if your plans change! If you get on the waiting list, there's a really good chance that a spot will open up for you, so be prepared to attend. If someone cancels, the first person on the waiting list will be moved automatically to the "Yes, I'm going" list and if that is you, you will receive an email to that effect.

Swappers get HALF of a 6-foot table to display their items. (Clothing can be hung separately on our clothing rack.) You'll get one ticket for each item you bring - up to 30 items. Your tickets are your currency for swapping.

When you arrive, claim some table space as yours, set it up and come tell me or DJ how many items you brought with you to get your tickets. Also please get a name badge. Then you'll be given some blue painter's tape and sharpie marker to "tag" the items others have brought that you would like to have. It's okay if there's already a tag on the item; you can still tag it. That means we'll have a bidding war and that's really fun!

Feel free to post items you will be bringing and what items you are looking for, remember we do not exchange any cash at this event.

Please bring a snack or appetizer to share. I'll bring beverages and provide plates, plastic ware, and napkins.

OUR AGENDA:

Set up: 6:45-7:15 (you can actually come as early as 6:30 if you wish)

Shop, mingle & eat 7:00-7:30

Swap starts at 7:30 sharp and we're usually done around 8:30. We need to be out of the room by 9pm.

Looking forward to another fun evening!

NOTE: Meetup fee is $2 per person, per swap to cover the cost of the room and Organizer's monthly fees. This fee will now be collected as DJ distributes your tickets.

Many thanks to D.J. for assisting me with the swap process and keeping it moving along, also a great model to boot. Thanks also to all of you who stayed behind to help pick up and pack up items for donation.  And a big thanks to Larisa for taking all the unwanted stuff to a donation place of her choice.

    I agree another great swap! I think we might be seeing that voodoo doll again. Thank you to everyone for my new treasures, my sister & niece thank you too! A special thanks to DJ, no massive modeling this time around but no the less awesome job and to Larissa for handling the donations to Saint Vincent DePaul. This is a great group of ladies. Looking forward to next month already ;). Take care everyone, have a great summer.

    I have to apologize for my absence tonight. My doctor called and told me something I was hoping not to hear. I don't think I can emotionally handle much today and it's affecting me physically. I was really looking forward to tonight's event, maybe next month. I deeply apologize and appreciate those who had items to swap with me, I am very sorry for this and the short notice. On the plus side, next month, since a lot of our items are already packed, everything should be unpacked and I will have better items to swap with. Again, I apologize to all of you and hope you have a wonderful time tonight. I hope I haven't caused any inconvenience and if so I'm sorry, this is just a bad day for me and I believe most of you can understand when bad news just makes you want to be antisocial. Have fun tonight and I will keep a look out on the message board for those looking for something or those who have something to give. Thank you.

    July 25, 2013

      Hopefully you can make.

      Hit enter by accident ... I hope you can make it next month. Feel better :)

    Hello swappers, I've been building and moving into a new house in about a month. I'm looking for a nice planter that I can macrame a hanger for and hang in my kitchen. I am looking for a nice elongated mirror, and a big jewelry box. I guess you could say I am looking for things that could decorate the house, be useful indoors and outdoors. If you have sturdy cardboard boxes or bins that are empty, I could use them for packing and also for storage. I will have my Smart car with me so any big items, like shelves, etc, we can talk at the swap about a meet and pick up with my husbands vehicle. And also anyone that has moved into a new construction before, I'll take advice as well. Thank you

    If anyone has anything to do with four leaf clovers or mermaids, (not for children), those are two little obsessions of mine I would love to take a look. Like art, decorations, dishes, etc. Also, my sister is due in two days, so I am looking for something small and nice to send to her for her and the baby. Thank you.
