Our closets are overflowing with awesome clothes that we never wear, accessories bought on a whim, shoes that have only been worn once (or sometimes twice), so much feminist swag, and all this has much more life left.
Let’s put those items to use, be green, save some green, and give some green!
How it works:
Entry is $10.
Tickets available online or at the event.
Facebook event link to invite your friends: HERE
Empty your closets of unwanted items that are gently, barely or never used (clothes, dressy scarves, outerwear, shoes, costume jewelry, sunglasses and purses) and bring them to St Stephen's Episcopal Church on March 24 between 4:30-8pm to get your “golden ticket” that allows you to take unlimited items at the swap the next day.
A massive amount of clothing will be available during the exchange and volunteers will arrange it into our fabulous Swap for Our Sisters boutique. The swap is from 11am-6pm on Saturday: come at any time and stay as long as you wish. It should be a fun party the whole time!
If you bring clothes on the days of the exchange, you may take as many items as you brought, in addition to the complimentary 10 items with your ticket. Additional items $1.
Dressing rooms will be available to try things on.
At the end of the swap leftover items will be donated to various community groups including those serving teens in need and LGBTQ youth, also rural career closets, prom programs, refugee and immigrant groups, domestic violence shelters and the Volunteers of America Thrift Store. If your group would like to partner with us and leftover donated items please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The full range of genders are welcome at this swap! We work hard to make sure that everyone is comfortable attending and participating as who they are. All adult clothing is welcome and available!
Drop-off: FRIDAY March 24, 2017, 4:30-8p

Some common courtesy notes: Items should be clean and in good condition, without holes, rips, or stains. If you don’t think others would want it please don’t bring it. Fun/ bizarre items encouraged! You may bring adult clothing, shoes, accessories (purses, scarves, etc.) Bring feminist swag and flair to find a new home. Please, no children’s clothing.
