Amber Meyer has carved out Saturday November 5th as the first ever combination all size women’s/children’s/men’s swap in the Gresham area. This is a family friendly event, and everyone is invited.
Here’s the instructions for the Gresham all-size, all-gender, and all-age swap:
Start going through your closets and select usable clothes that you no longer wear. Please bag up your items according to size so that it will make the swap go that much smoother. We will be having all the swaps on the same day, see the schedule below. Feel free to hang out all day or just attend your swap.
Here’s the plan: First we will start with the kids swap in the morning and then have a 1 hr break, feel free to bring a lunch and mingle with us. During our break will be the maternity swap, men’s swap and you can go through all of the children’s accessory and adult accessory tables as well at this time.
You can help make this a friendly gathering and a time to get to know each other- Amber will be providing water and hot water for tea. She might be able to go to the store and get some coffee if people would like some. Feel free to bring any refreshments or snacks to share if you would like.

This is an estimated schedule, so please arrive at least 15min prior to your swap. I, Amber, cannot promise all swaps will last as long as scheduled I also can not promise all swaps will not go over the time frame. I will not start any swap earlier than stated on the schedule though. Feel free to bring kids, just know space is limited and you will have to watch them.
Since this is the first ever Gresham all size swap, please tell everyone you know about this swap! (Please arrive no earlier than 10:30am.)
Please let Amber know if you are coming and which swap(s) you are attending at firstname.lastname@example.org that way she can plan for enough people. So many people have been asking for a men’s clothing swap, and a dedicated plus size swap – and you can be a part of this first ever positive recycling and community building event in East Portland!
