Swing into August Swap Meet

  • Aug 22, 2013 · 6:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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 22 swappers at this event, so RSVP ASAP to reserve a seat. Please be sure to change your RSVP, including number of guests, if your plans change! If you get on the waiting list, there's a really 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 come tell me or DJ how many items you brought with you to get your tickets. Also please get a name badge. Then you'll be given some blue painter's tape and sharpie marker to "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 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'll bring beverages and provide plates, plastic ware, and napkins.

OUR AGENDA:

Set up: 6:45-7:15 (you can actually come as early as 6:30 if you wish)

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

Swap starts at 7:30 sharp and we're usually done around 8:30. We need to be out of the room by 9pm.

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 now 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 stayed 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.

    • Larisa B. aka X.

      Try Amazon or ebay... She may get some $$ for it but I will ask a gamer friend... what kind of games?

    Hello - with school right around the corner I am guessing a lot of mom's are looking for school supplies and kids clothes. If there is something specific you are seeking place a note so others know what to bring this week to the swap. See you all soon ;)

  • Larisa B. aka X.

    Bringing a bunch of maternity stuff, clothes and some vitamins, and the usual mix of household goodies including Lisa of shampoos and lotions. LOOKING FOR: pepper mill, salad spinner, Julianne slicer, size 7.5 or 8 roller blades and large or XL knee pads

    Hello Ladies,
    I have a stainless steel microwave if anyone needs one for a college bound student and I have the black shoe rack for Diana if she still wants it. Let me know and maybe you can pickup from my garage instead of me dragging these heavy items to the swap.
    Blessings
    Virginia
