September 2015 Free Swaps


It’s back to school time!   Time to gift what you no longer wear and get some fun new-to-you fashion:)  There’s a kids swap later in the month, and a planned craft swap as well, so along with women’s clothing there’s a variety of other fun swaps to participate in.  If you don’t see a swap in your size, interest, or area of town, we’d love to help you start a free swap!  Here’s the free swaps we know about so far for the month of September 2015:
