The Treasure Hunting Begins…

Swappers were pretty excited about the February size 6-12 (small/medium) clothing swap at the Evergreen Community Church gym (formerly PCL /Presbyterian Church Of Laurelhurst building in NE Portland).  We hadn’t swapped clothes since November 2016 due to the Gift swap in December, and being iced out in January. This is play time for those who love de-cluttering, treasure hunting, and refreshing wardrobes for absolutely free! Plus we had lots of remainders that were picked up this time by the Pay It Forward Store to be shared with others in our community for free.

Everyone who comes to Free Swaps not only gets to de-clutter and have an hour or so of free entertainment, but each person gives AND receives AND is a philanthropist AND helps the environment by keeping usable items out of landfills.  Thank you for being a part of the free frugal fun! Everyone who contributes in a free swap participates in the magic to make it all happen.
