Share & receive awesome clothes!

It’s best to arrive 5-10 minutes early as we will start promptly at 7pm.We start & leave on-time so please plan extra time to be a few minutes early so you get plenty of awesome new duds! – include time for traffic, weird parking issues, etc. Most trading is done from the beginning to around…approx 7:25ish I would say, & we’re out & ready for Friday night by about 7:45.

Everyone waits to take anything until the swap starts, and there is a firm rule about NOT selling any clothes you get from a swap.

FREE SWAP RULES*

1. Bring only clean clothes, in good condition, in the correct sizes (this swap is size petite to medium only please).

2. Do NOT take anything before the swap coordinator says “go”.

3. Be kind and courteous to other swappers.

4. Do not sell things you get from the swap.

*By participating in this swap, you agree to and will follow the above rules.

PLEASE BRING ENOUGH BAGS TO COVER YOUR LEFTOVERS AS WELL AS WHAT YOU TAKE!

I provide the structure & bring the leftovers down the street, & ask you gals to help me bag & bring stuff down to my car so I can do that easily. Thanks for helping to make your swap community a reality, and remember by participating in free swaps you agree to not sell anything you get for free at a free swap, but can give it away or bring it back to the next swap if you decide it’s not quite ‘you’.  Good karma continues as we’re all philanthropists making a positive difference for ourselves and others!

Anyway, yay! Please bring full-length mirrors if you have them – what I can handle is coming, posting, managing fb, reminding & dropping stuff off after…:-) Help with all else welcome & encouraged please :-D! Then, please bring a reasonable amount of non-stained, non-ripped clothes – about a bag’s worth or so/more.

Also, sorry but non-clothing items kept being left behind, so ‘stuff’ has been found to be outside of this swap’s abilities at this time. Please do not bring anything that is not wearable. Also, all must wait to take anything until everyone arrives & the swap starts, & scout’s honor not to come to the swap for materials to sell, or the swap won’t work anymore!
Otherwise, welcome from myself & all of us ladies in community working together to make this possible!

Please help at the end by gathering all the stuff up & putting it in my little car,  bring a new clean plastic or paper bag(s) every time for remainders!

In case of any emergencies I’d love it if folks would stay tuned to the  Facebook Group  just in case, but the donation location is just a few blocks away & instructions will be simple! Yay:-)  Good tidings & fun times to all our sharers of the wealth:-) may true sharing bring you abundance.   Volunteer Swap Hostess Shay Mullins, and all the people who step forward to make this work!
