Family Swap, Sherwood OR, August 23rd

It only happens twice a year – the bi-annual Family Swap in Sherwood!

FREE Clothing Swap/Exchange Saturday August 23rd  — At Countryside Community Church, 18810 S.W. Kruger Road, Sherwood. Countryside Community Church will be hosting a FREE Clothing Exchange on Saturday, August 23rd, at 10 a.m. Bring any gently worn clothing items to exchange that you or your loved ones no longer wear.

Beginning at 10 a.m. everyone will be released to “shop” through all the clothing (there will be children’s, men’s and women’s categories limited to Clothing Items Only) and take whatever they would like for free.

All of the leftover clothing at the end of the hour will be donated to local non-profit organizations to help clothe others in the surrounding communities as well as our own. This is a great way to share resources with others in our community, especially children’s clothing as children grow in and out of clothing so quickly, and it’s a great way to get some shopping in for yourself without having to spend a penny!  For more information, phone weekdays: 503-925-0689.

Kids Clothing Swap looking for host/ess!

Kids grow out of clothes so fast!  Hosting a Kids Free Swap gives you regular opportunities to get together with like-minded people to swap out kids clothes, clear out your closets of stuff your kids have outgrown, get new to you clothes and toys they can use for FREE, help keep usable items out of landfills, and the remainders are passed along so other local kids/families can enjoy free goodies as well!

Nicole Willis, volunteer hostess of the Kids Clothes and Small Toys (infant through teen) swap at the Midland Library in SE Portland, is looking to pass this volunteer position on to another interested swapper(s).  Nicole can give you her library contact person, so your free swap space is already figured out!  She has organizations to take the remainders and give them away for free – she Continue reading

Women’s/Teens size 0-5 Swap, SE Portland, August 15th

Welcome to the August Women’s Size 0-5 Clothing Swap this Friday at 7pm!  Please bring a reasonable amount of good quality clothing, and remember, non-clothing is only ok if folks take it – otherwise it must be brought back home with you. Please help out by bringing a mirror and/or some decent bags (sturdy trash bags are great) for donating the remainders!

Thanks in advance for helping to make your swap community a reality, and remember by participating in free swaps you agree to not sell anything you get for free at a free swap, but can give it away or bring it back to the next swap if you decide it’s not quite ‘you’.  Good karma continues as we’re all philanthropists making a positive difference for ourselves and others!

Only sizes 0-5 in great shape please – if you have larger sizes or kids sizes, please take them to the correct swap for those sizes.  If you have clothes missing zippers or raggy items please offer them on

Clean out your closet! Gather all the clothes in good condition that you don’t wear or want. Include accessories like shoes, hats, belts, purses, jewelry, etc. (but please: no used make-up or undergarments). Our next women/teen size 0-5 swap at People’s Co-op will be Friday, August 15th at  Continue reading
