Accessories Swap Party (co-ed)

  • Nov 24, 2012 · 3:00 PM
  • Claudette's Cabana

The address has been sent to those on the Yes/Going RSVP list.  If you'd like to attend and/or didn't get the email, click my name/photo and send me an email requesting the address before noon.  After that I'll be busy getting set up. 
(Updated 11/23 ~ Claudette)

Do you have jewelry, wallets, purses, belts, hats, sun glasses, fans, umbrellas, timepieces, backpacks, brief cases, computer bags, shoes/boots (make sure sizes are clearly marked – women size 11s are highly desired!), scarves, gloves or other accessories you’re hanging onto but should get rid of? Looking to get a few pieces for yourself or holiday gifts? Well this event is for you!

Bring any and all accessories (for women as well as men – accessories only, no clothes-this time) and for every item you bring, you can select a replacement (i.e. if you bring 4 items you can choose up to 4 items – doesn’t have to be the same type either). Extra items will be donated to several local charities. New and used items are welcomed, even items which need minor repairs (I once got broken necklace 75% off and it only cost 2¢ to repair, so…). I plan to have tables for different groups of accessories (a shoe table, a jewelry table, a scarf/belt stand, etc.). Bring a shopping bag and tissue/packaging paper to wrap delicates.

While I’ve done clothing swaps in the past, this is my first ‘accessory’ swap so let’s see how this goes. Please let me know if you have questions.

Inviting selected Meetup groups and depending on interest may have different start/end times so it’s not crowded.

PS: If you could also bring a teddy bear or stuffed animal - any size, new(ish), to donate to the Olympia Toy Run and the Teddy Bear Ride for Auburn Children’s Medical Center (motorcycle charity rides) that would be greatly appreciated! ~ Claudette

    To the gals who got/wear hats – we talked about donning our hats and going out for tea, say at the British Pantry in Redmond. Send me an email and I’ll set something up. Thinking a Sunday, maybe Dec 9th or 16th. So we can get to know each other more, was just going to set up for us, not as a Meetup, so be sure to email me if you’re interested.

    Thanks all who made it out for this first of possible many more accessory swap parties. We talked about doing another just for purses, home items and brand name items. So keep an eye out here or my group Eastside Social Club meetup. Thanks Debbie for taking photos, can’t wait to see them. I can’t believe I forgot my camera, but I’ll be sure to share the ones from Debbie. :s But it looked like everyone had fun and people walked away with some new treasures. I’m thrilled with my ‘new to me’ items. The left over items are going to homeless shelters and thrift stores supporting charities. We are so blessed to have so much to share with others. Thank you!

    Hey folks, looking forward to seeing you Saturday and the items you have to bring!
    >HEADS UP: I will send the address only to those on YES/GOING list Friday evening so check your email before you head out on Saturday. If you are on the WAIT LIST, you will not get the address unless you change your RSVP by 6pm on Friday. RSVPs will be cut off by that time so NEW RSVPs, be sure to sign up by then as well. (However if you really want to attend after the cut off, email me directly before noon Saturday).
    >FYI: This is trade/donation only. Money exchange is not allowed in my cabana, association rules.
