  1. How mnay people do you typically have at these?

    • Hi Amy – it depends on the swap venue size, the items to be swapped, and who is available to swap that day, as to how many people show up. We’ve had from 10 people (at an in-house swap) to 200 people (at the bi-yearly family swap in Sherwood). But I’d say many of the clothing swaps for women by size are in the 15-30 range of regular swappers, and some of the larger venues and stuff/gift swap events that are open to men women and teens tend to be in the 75-150 range of participants. Hope that helps.

  2. Hi Barb,
