Kids Clothing (no toys),   Saturday April 19th.     Kids grow so fast!  Why not swap out the clothes your kids no longer wear, and get the next size up for your growing family?  Your kids have probably outgrown much of last summers clothes – bring them to this swap and get some new summer clothes in the right sizes!  Also, be sure to bring any new moms – there’s usually lots of baby clothes.  Located at the Midland Library in SE Portland.

Women’s and Teens ALL SIZES,  Monday April 21st.      Lost some weight and want to clear out your too-big wardrobe and get new clothes in your smaller size?  Gained some weight and tired of squeezing into too-tight clothes?  Swap out your all sizes of clothes here!  Bring your girlfriends of all sizes and enjoy some play time!  Located in Tigard at the Colossae Church.

Mens/Women’s/Kids clothes and Stuff (Trash to Treasure),   Saturday April 26th.  This isn’t officially/exclusively a free swap, but a city event that also includes recycling of styrofoam and other oddities.  If you’ve got trash AND treasure, this is the place to bring both!  (Official free swaps do NOT take recycleables or worn out junk, but ONLY clothing, accessories, and items in usable condition).    Located in North Portland at the St. Johns Swapnplay.
