Please read all the way through.
Clothing drop off at 12 noon, no earlier as we are setting up. Have a seat in the chairs provided until 1:00 when the swap actually starts or come back at 1:00. Please make payment after you drop your clothing to get a stamp on your hand. Volunteers, please arrive at 11:00 to set up and lay clothing out.
We are more than a meetup - WE ARE A MOVEMENT!
Are you ready to get inspired? Are you ready to go shopping and update your wardrobe without breaking the bank? Don't shop!!! SWAP! At our "Swap Til' You Drop" Clothing Swap Events you can meet with locals to swap the cool clothes you no longer want or need. Our events cost just $15.00 for entry paid at the doors. Just bring all of the clothing, shoes, and accessories you have! You can shop/swap for all the items that you want! You are welcome to take home just as much as you like! We accept cash only and please bring exact change. Volunteers, please get in touch with me to be put on the volunteer list. [masked] and let me know 2-4 weeks before the swap date. We NEED volunteers to make this happen. Please show up 2 hours earlier than swap time and plan to stay through cleanup. VOLUNTEERS PAY $10 and can choose 5 items before the swap starts as an incentive to help pull this off. DO NOT VOLUNTEER IN THE COMMENT SECTION. I can be reached by email or through meetup. It's an opportunity to gain basically free new-to-you outfits, accessories, and shoes and contribute your time to what ultimately helps such great causes. Any unclaimed items will be donated to a local domestic violence shelter and any remaining money left over after recouping fees laid out (if any) is donated to RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) I'm a huge supporter of domestic violence & sexual assault victims & survivors.
• What to bring
Please bring ONLY CLEAN, non-stained and not torn or ripped pieces of clothing The minimum for entry is 5 items plus 2 accessories (jewelry, purses, shoes, scarves) Make sure you would be proud to give an item to a friend before bagging your items. We have had lots of clothing come through that are not is swappable condition and I need your help to stop it. We DO NOT trade men's or children's clothes or shoes. We are also no longer accepting trinkets or anything that is not clothing, shoes, purses or jewelry. Do not bring things like lanyards, cards, measuring tape, cups, books, towels, sheets, squeegees, etc. or things from your junk drawer. ONLY CLOTHING, SHOES, PURSES OR JEWELRY. NOTHING ELSE. Accessories mean purses, scarves, hats... nothing else please. Make sure you bring an extra bag to take your choices home in. Please do not bring clothing in boxes. Bags only, please. My new car doesn't have the same size for storage as my old van so I am limited to how much I can transport to the shelter. It would be great if someone could take a few bags of the left over clothing and donate them to your choice of places. I don't want to get stuck at the end of the swap with bags that don't fit. I don't want to leave any bags behind for the janitor to have to clean up. Please let me know if you can help with this ;)
Vendors: We do not have ANY available vendor swaps as the venue is too small.
