Happy Holidays! Here are the free swaps we know of so far for the month of December. Swap hostesses – please let me know if you have any additions/changes to the list below. Swappers, pamper yourself this month by cleaning out your usable but no longer needed clothing, accessories, and giftables (you’ll feel great getting rid of your clutter!), and go treasure hunting for new-to-you clothes and things for yourself -and possibly for sustainable gift giving:).
