June "In Bloom" Swap

  • June 19, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We are in the CARD ROOM for this swap.  Note: new start time of 7pm sharp for the swap to officially begin going forward.  See updated time break down below.  We must be out of the center at 9pm therefore the quicker everyone arrives and sets up the better.

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 20 swappers at this event, so RSVP ASAP to reserve a seat. Please be sure to update your RSVP if your plans change! If you get on the waiting list, there's a 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 before we get started either DJ or myself will come by and give you your tickets and collect the $2 swap fee.  Also please get a name badge. Get some blue painter's tape and a sharpie marker (up front on the table) "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 a picture of 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 will bring a beverage and provide cups, plates, plastic ware, and napkins.

OUR AGENDA:

Set up: starting at 6:00pm 

Shop, mingle & eat 6:30-7:00

Swap starts at 7:00 sharp

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 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 stay 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.

    Thought we were going to be half-full, but all the gals were in the house and the night was flawless. Even with the late start we were done early. I found a couple of items for my sis (which she loved) and I think we may get a new member soon.

    So I have a TON of stuff from my babe. A huge stationary entertainer, a bouncer, a carrier...is anyone going to be interested?

    June 10

  • Dawn R.

    Posted some pics tonight. This list isn't written in ink, so if you like something, be sure to mention it so I don't change it out at the last minute. Anyone like vintage cookbooks? I have a nice book type journal with sewn in pages, if someone likes to write.

    Hi - I have opened up a photo album for this swap in case anyone would like to post items they will be bringing.
