Free Clothing Swap

Contact person: Charly Mathews

This is a totally FREE event, with NO obligation to bring anything or take anything. It's called a "swap"because so many people bring clothes they no longer need, and take what they DO want.HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:At home, sort and fold CLEAN clothes (clothes you wouldn't mind putting on your family to go out in public) by size into boxes or bags. THEN, when you get to the swap, sort the clothes by size onto marked tables. Next comes the fun part. Go to the tables with the size clothes you are looking for, and take what you need. Free of charge. No strings attached.

The organization will provide the bags for that day. One bag per family! This is the only way to keep the swap fair.

Some families are looking to clean out the clothes they no longer use, and they bring boxes of clothes in, sometimes leaving with just one or two "special" things. Other families are really in need of clothes, and come with little or nothing, but leave with a bag of clothes. Others bring what they took last season, for another family to take this time, and bring home another season's worth themselves to start the process again.
THIS IS FOR INDIVIDUALS ONLY ... NO charities, shelters, or resale.

Look for clothes you might like to bring. Wash, fold, and sort them by size. Then call all your friends and family and ask them to do the same ... and come alone or as a group to the swap! Clothes swapping are even more fun when you can share your great finds with friends.

All sizes of baby, kids, and adult clothing (including coats, shoes, and accessories). VERY lightly stained clothes are OK as some people don't mind these for work or play, or are talented at removing stains. However, all clothing MUST BE CLEAN, NO TEARS. Fabric and baby accessories are welcome.

Anyone dropping off clothing the day before the swap will receive a ticket to gain first access to the swap, between 10-11AM.Tuesday, November 17, 2009 from 2:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. You can also call to make other arrangements for drop-offs prior to the swap

PLEASE NOTE: For safety reasons. All children must be supervised.
