Have clothes that no longer fit? Toys and gear your little one has outgrown? Bring them to "hand down" to other parents! Clothing newborn to 3T, gear (bottles, pump parts, breast pads) and maternity clothing is welcome.
If you have something larger to pass along, list it in the Facebook event in advance so you have a "confirmed" taker. Any items remaining will be donated to Cradles to Crayons.
"How do Swaps work?"
Please read our FAQs (https://www.meetup.com/clothing-swaps/pages/22565874/FAQs%3A_How_do_swaps_work)
You are encouraged to bring your baby and partners are welcomed.
Are you waiting for the arrival of your little one?
Expectant parents are encouraged to join us. Lots of newborn outfits for you to take home. No worries if you do not have anything to donate this time.
To cover group costs, we request a $5-$20 (sliding scale) fee per family. To encourage participation, we waive this fee for anyone donating a bag of clothing 18 months - 3T. Clothing and items will be organized by size/type - and are free for the taking.
Where we meet:
We will be alternating venues each month. This month we are at Temple Israel by Longwood/Brookline, next month we will be in Old West Church.
