Hi Swappers! It’s that time of year again to plan for our SPRING STUFF SWAP!
If you’ve never been to a Free Stuff Swap, here’s a video my daughter made about 10 years ago
We’ve got all the volunteers in place except for a non-profit to take the remainders at the end of the swap (there’s usually about a van full) Saturday April 13th… or several swappers who will load up the remainders and take them to various non-profits of their choice (that give away, not sell the goodies…since we got them for free, let’s keep the good karma flowing to help others, too!).
When we get confirmation that we’ve got remainder pick-up in place, we’ll put up the RSVP information here at Swap Positive. Since kind men, women, and teens (no children or babies) are invited to this swap, we take RSVP’s so that everyone knows how our free swap runs, and agrees to the free swap rules (only bring clean items in good condition. Only take what you will personally use and give as gifts. Be kind to others at the swap. Do not sell anything you get at a free swap – you agree to give it away or bring it back to another free swap. All remainders are given to charities that give them away, not sell them, so everyone who comes to a free swap is a philanthropist!).
It’s time to go through your house, closets, storage, garage, attic and find all those great items that no longer spark joy. Make sure they are in good shape, in working order, and clean… and set them aside for the swap!
YES items include: Books, toys, games, dishes, sheets, towels, tools, tech that works, pet items, housewares, decorative items, holiday items, novelty items, crafts, jewelry, collectables: If you would give it as a gift, or give it to a friend, bring it!
NO items include: toxic things (no gasoline, kerosine, poisons) no unwashable pillows, no garbage, nothing dirty or broken, no food (unless its unexpired and unopened), nothing too big to fit into the backseat of a car.
Thanks for letting me know if you can pick up the remainders! As soon as we have this volunteer position filled, we will post RSVP information!
