October 2015 Free Swaps

BOO!  Time to freshen up your fashion – clear out your closets and storage of clothes in good condition that you don’t wear  (too small, too large, just aren’t ‘you’ anymore), wash them up, and bring them to a clothing/accessories swap!  Some swaps also accept costumes in their accessories area in October so you can do your Halloween swapping this month as well.

10/24/15  All Size Family Clothing Swap/ Clothing Exchange (Sherwood) for Women, Men, & Children, 10 am at Countryside Community Church 18810 S.W. Kruger Road, Sherwood. Usually twice a year.  Countryside Community Church will be hosting a FREE Clothing Exchange on Saturday, October 24, 2015 @ 10:00 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! Phone weekdays: 503-925-0689.

10/30/15 Women’s All Size Clothing and Stuff Swap in Happy Valley, 7pm at New Seasons market on Sunnyside in the yoga studio/conference room. The last Friday of the month.  You can bring not only clothes but shoes and accessories and any other goodies that you want to pass on (such as books, jewelry, lotions, makeup, pens, arts and crafts and etc). If you know of a good organization that can use the leftover clothes or if you can take it with you please let me know. To RSVP (reserve your spot) contact Tanya at  Happyswap@hotmail.com
