Women’s and Kids Clothing Swap, Tigard, needs new volunteer host(s)

Swap co-hosts Barbara and Cindy have been hosting the Tigard Quarterly swaps for women and kids at the Colossae church location for over 9 years! Many women and families have had the thrill of free frugal fun, exchanging treasure, helping out the environment, and being philanthropists. Barbara and Cindy say that, due to busy stages of life for both of them, they need to step down as hosts and either close down this swap or pass it along to the next host.
If YOU would like to step forward and host these Tigard swaps at the Colossae church location (or start a swap in your size/interest at this location and time), Cindy said she’ll help you with the transition. 12244 SW Garden Place.  Date is 3rd Monday in September, January and April.  Handicapped accessible, adults only since venue is not fully childproofed. You can email Cindy at cindylou.eng@gmail.com   Cindy can give you helpful tips on how to start a free swap (she’s done most of the work already) and what to say at a free swap (ie what a host does).  It’s pretty simple and here’s why. Then, please contact me with the updated information so I can update this website and help give you free advertising for your swap!
Other west side swaps still available include:

Maternity and Baby Clothing to Kids size 10, Accessories  and Toy Swap (NW Portland, PCC Rock Creek Campus, 17705 NW Springville Rd, Portland OR 97229). Swaps will be held three times a year: June, October, February. Bring gently-used gear and clothes: maternity and sizes premie up to size 10. in the Event Center in Building 9.  For details check out the Naked Baby Clothing Swap (Westside Edition) https://www.facebook.com/groups/BabyClothesSwapWestPDX/about/Facebook page.

Babies and Kids Size 0-6+ Clothing Exchange (Hillsboro) 9am-noon in the multi-purpose room at Harvest Community Church, 8215 NE Quantama Street, Hillsboro, OR 97006. This is a first-time swap!  If enough people show up to exchange kids size 0-6+ goodies, they will consider making it a regular event – so tell all your friends/families that have babies and little kids to come out and bring things they’re kids have outgrown that are clean and in good condition, and swap for new-to-you items that you love! For more information about this swap, contact Swap Coordinator Kelly at Mommafawn3@gmail.com
