REVIEWING DONATION BEST PRACTICES

A new year is a good time to review some exchange best practices for this incredibly generous community.

If you do bring clothes to exchange, remember our goal is to give the clothes we’re proud to share with our friends and neighbors. Please refrain from sharing soiled, stained or damaged clothes. As you decide what to exchange or donate, please also keep in mind we are a small, volunteer-run space and aren’t set up to process bulk donations or store non-clothing items. Check out the What To Share and What Not to Share sections on the FCE donation page for more best practices and let’s keep on sharing our best in 2023!

Come ready to exchange some of your old faves and pick up some great, new-to-you clothes for yourself! See you there!

The North Portland Free Clothing Exchange is a free community event. Everyone is welcome. All sizes of Men’s, Women’s, and Children’s clothing are exchanged. No donation is required in order to receive clothing. But if you have it, feel free to bring clean clothing in good condition to share, or books you have finished reading that you’d like to share.

People of all shapes and places in life participate in these events. It is a great chance to meet our neighbors in a fun, friendly way and help those in need and the planet at the same time.

Be sure to check out the bookshelf for some good reads while you are shopping!

HELP OUT AT THE EXCHANGE!

If you would like to volunteer, please go to our Contact Page and let us know, so we can plan accordingly. Volunteers will need to arrive at 1:30pm Sunday, January 15th for orientation and stay until about 4:15pm.

Family Clothing Swap, Sherwood OR, November 12, 2022

FREE Clothing Exchange — At Countryside Community Church, 18810 S.W. Kruger Road, Sherwood. 

Countryside Community Church will be hosting a FREE Clothing Exchange on Saturday, Nov. 12th from 9:45 to 11:00 am

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 rummage through all the clothing (there will be children’s, men’s and women’s categories) and take whatever they would like.

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!

Questions? Phone weekdays: 503-925-0689.

Fall Plant Exchange, SE Portland, October 23, 2022


Event by Kari Koch and East Portland Gardeners

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2022

1:15 PM – 3:15 PM PDT

Fall Plant Exchange

2036 SE 117th Ave, Portland, OR 97216-3908, United States

Duration: 2 hr

Public  · Anyone on or off Facebook

Fall is an excellent time to dig and plant things.

For this plant swap all plants, seeds and garden goodies are welcome.

Dig and divide your perennials! Bring fall sown seeds! Make cuttings to share! Bag up all those extra tomatoes that you can’t possibly eat! Bring it all to the swap.

I’m especially excited to host a dahlia tuber exchange at this event. It’d be best if you can dig, divide your tubers and label them with color and plant height. But feel free to bring the whole tuber mass and I’ll show you how to divide it on site.

This is a bring what you can, take what you need event. This is not a one for one trading event. Though if you don’t have plants or seeds to share, please consider what you do have – maybe homemade muffins! Or apples! Or eggs! Or???
