***We will provide and limit the number of bags you can take.

Admission is Free, but a donation of any canned goods or shelf stable food for our Community Food Bank would be appreciated!

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. We also take household items, furniture and etc. These "swaps" are popular in Oakland County, and have caught on in Macomb County, too.

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. And other items too. 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're looking for, and take what you need. Free of charge. No strings attached.

**Please note, we will provide the bags. To be fair, please only take what you need.

Some families are looking to clean out the clothes they no longer need. They bring boxes of clothes in, and sometimes leave with just one or two "special" things. Other families are really in need of clothes, and come with little or nothing, but leave with bags 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. Also look for any household items you no longer need. Then call all your friends and family and ask them to do the same. Come alone or as a group to the swap! Clothes swapping is even more fun when you can share your great finds with friends.

All sizes of baby, kids and adults clothing (including coats, shoes and accessories). All clothing MUST BE CLEAN and should be free of rips, stains and tears. Fabric and baby accessories are welcome.

*PLEASE NOTE: For safety reasons, children must be supervised.
