Hi Swappers! Looking forward to seeing you this Saturday for the Spring Stuff Swap in NE Portland. Some special guests are coming: my friend Alicia and some staff from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS).
If you are a regular or semi-regular swapper, Alicia and Blythe are looking for a swapper or two to ask a few questions on why you like free swaps, get some pictures of you looking happy and having fun, then write an article that will be part of the June Portland Curbsider, and blog posts for BPS! You might become famous for having free frugal fun, being sustainable, and making a positive difference! And of course you’ll be freeing yourself of household clutter, and getting some new-to-you things that you’ll use and enjoy, catch up with friends, and be a philanthropist (the PSU Student Re-Use Free Store, and the Paying It Forward Free Store are both recipients of this months remainders)!
Photographer Kristin plans to stage the shots with volunteers, and will let those who don’t want to be photographed know so they can get out of the frame 🙂
I’m excited – I’ve got 2 boxes of clean goodies ready for the free swap, and will be taking one last look around the house, garage, and garden shed to gather and clean up any remaining items in the next day or so.
If you’re looking for a last minute volunteer opportunity, we could use an extra person to bring their vacuum from home and an extension cord. That way we’ll have two vacuuming volunteers to make sure the venue’s carpeted gym floor is cleaned up after the swap.
Thanks for being a part of the free swapping community.
