Vegan Swap Party!

We're having a

vegan swap party:

it's free, eco-friendly, and for a good cause!

 

Details: MUST READ!!!

If you have never been to a swap party, here are the rules and what to expect:

  • Pack a box (or bag) full of gently used or even new (vegan friendly) belongings that you would like to donate that you don’t use anymore that someone else would gladly use/like. What a great time to clean out your cupboards and closets. Think clothes you don’t wear, movies you never watch, kitchen supplies you never use, books you never read, etc.!
  • Bring your box of stuff to giveaway and come to the SVS Grange Hall where there will be tables organized by genre, and unload your goods to the designated table. (i.e.: place your books with all the other books.)
  • Next, browse the tables! Have fun doing some guilt free shopping and pick up anything you like, you can refill your box or bag if you want! (Its free shopping because you are ‘swapping’!)

PLEASE ONLY bring vegan friendly stuff! (No leather jackets, wool sweaters,etc!).

Even if you don’t find anything you want, or even if you just want to clean out some stuff from your house, it’s for a good cause, because all the leftover items will be donated to the SPCA thrift store for the animals!!

It’s an open event, so anyone can come and go when they please, and we will hopefully have a steady flow of donated items coming in and out.
It’s a great way to mingle and do some guilt-free eco-friendly vegan shopping!

There will be drinks and a few snacks available, too. Feel free to bring a vegan snack to share if you want and invite a friend too! (Invite your facebook friends at https://www.facebook.com/events/139507086248086/ and make sure they know to bring only vegan friendly items.)

So start going collecting things now, and we will see you there!

    Such fun. Great items to choose from and wonderful people to chat with. I always love a swap and the clutter clearing that happens. I would love to do this again and have a recipe and cookbook swap too.

    Thanks to Rae and her swap team (Ilsa, Caroline, Glenn) for organizing such a well-put-together swap party, and thanks to all the folks who donated so many great items and helped in various ways throughout the day. And what a treat to enjoy the company of so many delightful people.

    Fantastic! Last nite I tried to get rid of 15 pounds of organic zucchni from my garden at the Oak Park crop swap but nobody would take it! I have SO much zucchini and don't know what to do with it - there is just so much zucchini bread and stir fries I can eat. My garden has a LOT of extra produce and now I know where I can unload it to a good home and get some cool stuff in return! Yeah! I'm going through my house and clearing out anything I have not used in the last two years. Great chance to let go of clutter and simplify my life!
