Swap Volunteer(s) Needed for Craft Swap

A big appreciation Thank You to Volunteer Megan McCoy, the Craft Supplies Swap coordinator and hostess for these past few years! Megan is ready to pass along the swap organization and hosting to new volunteer(s).  The position is now open – if you are interested in taking over hosting the Craft Supplies Swap, please contact Megan at paganmegan@gmail.com  for more information.  I believe Megan took care of all the details herself, but if you take over this position, you can choose to create a team of three volunteers – one to greet/host at the event, one to book the venue, and one to find an organization or individual who will take the remainders and give them away.  In addition to talking with Megan about how shes organized her swap, here’s some other tips on how to organize a free swap https://swappositive.wordpress.com/about/start-a-free-swap/

Petite to Medium (approx size 0-8) Clothing Swap!  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’s/teens  size Petite to Medium (approx 0-8) swap at People’s Co-op will be Friday, November 20th at  7pm.  Please limit to good quality – no rips or stains, including grease. If you have larger sizes or kids sizes, please take them to the correct swap for those sizes. 

I provide the structure & bring the leftovers down the street, & ask gals to help me bag & bring stuff down to my car so I can do that easily. Thanks 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!
