Hi swappers! What gorgeous weather we’re having! Time to clean out your closets and storage of clothing, accessories, shoes and more that just don’t spark joy anymore, and treasure hunt for some new-to-you goodies! This month we’ve got clothing swaps for small women, medium women, large and plus women. We’ve got a trans/queer clothing and accessories swap, and a family swap for men/women/kids of all sizes. We’ve even got a pop-up swap sponsored by PSU where you can give and get household, office supplies, clothing, and non-perishable food (a huge stuff swap, guys!!). Enjoy some decluttering and treasure hunting this month. And if you don’t see a swap in your interest or area of town, here’s how to start one! Then tell me about it and I’ll post it free on this site 🙂
