POTLUCK and FREE SWAP: Can arrive any time after 3pm to set out items, Potluck and Swap begin at 4pm. (Free swaps usually last about an hour, so arrive early for the best selection. However, even if you arrive later, there will be others arriving later as well and adding items, plus the raffles take place from 4pm -8pm. Must be present to win the raffle prizes.)
Potluck: If you can bring a finger food dish or snack to share, or a new item to donate for the raffle, that would be wonderful, but not required. Everyone who attends will get a free raffle ticket!
Free Clothing and Stuff Swap: Go through your house and storage, find in-good-condition items you no longer need/use love, wash them up, make sure all the pieces are there, and bring them to the swap! Bring giftable and wearable items in good condition to swap including: holiday decorations, kid, baby, and teen clothes, mom and maternity clothes, toys, books, household and kitchen items, games, fun and pampering stuff teens and mom’s like – basically anything clean and in good shape that is giftable! When the swap begins, feel free to take what you will use or give as gifts. Please be kind, generous and courteous. All remainders will be donated to bless families in the community.
In between snacking and swapping, there will be music from 4-7pm. Relax, visit, and chill with other Moms! This is a chance to de-clutter, find new-to-you items, enjoy a visit and food with new friends, listen to music, and refresh yourself!
