Happy Valley Swap taking a break

UPDATE: “Hello, my name is Sara Jossi and I have been a part of the Happy Valley swap since the beginning. Our leader Tanya quit over a year ago and we have tried to keep the swap going….¬† I will be moving away from the area soon. I think it would be best if the Happy Valley Swap were removed from the website. I just contacted the Camas swap because that is the area I will be moving to. Looking forward to more swapping in Washington in my future ūüôā thank you for administrating this great site.”

Many thanks to Sara, Tonya, and the others who started and enjoyed the Happy Valley All Size Women’s Clothing and Stuff Swap!¬† If you’d like a venue to host in the future, we will add this swap back into rotation – contact me if interested!

Women’s All Size Clothing and Small Stuff Swap, Happy Valley, September 27th

UPDATE 09.27.19: “Hello, my name is Sara Jossi and I have been a part of the Happy Valley swap since the beginning. Our leader Tanya quit over a year ago and we have tried to keep the swap going. But unfortunately it has dwindled down to just me and one other person or no one else. I would feel bad if someone came out because it has advertised, but there was no one there. I will be moving away from the area soon. I think it would be best if the Happy Valley Swap were removed from the website altogether. I just contacted the camas swap because that is the area I will be moving to. Looking forward to more swapping in Washington in my future ūüôā thank you for administrating this great site.”

Many thanks to Sara, Tonya, and the others who started and enjoyed the Happy Valley All Size Women’s Clothing and Stuff Swap!If you’d like to host a free swap at this location, please contact me!

At this time, this is a self-hosted swap. Women of all sizes choose to arrive, swap clothing and goodies, and when they leave take any of their ‚Äėnot chosen‚Äô remainders back to donate to a nonprofit of their choice (or bring back to the next swap).
