I recently attended a clothing swap held by the Washington DC Clothing Swap Society via meetup.com. How does it work? There is a small admission which more than pays for itself. Participants bring gently used or new items and drop them off at the swap location. Once everything is organized the swapping begins. The benefits of swapping include: swapping unwanted items to refill your wardrobe, meeting new people and whatever is left over gets donated to charity.
My Secrets To Swapping Success Are:
- Dress comfortably!
- Arrive early to be among the first to enter the swap.
- Stay until the end! I’ve scored amazing finds that people put back.
- Bring two sturdy recyclable bags to make carrying your swap finds easier.
If you are excited and ready to swap search Google, Swap.com and Meetup.com for clothing swaps in your area. If there are no swaps in your area, organize one of your own. Now its your turn, has anyone attended a clothing swap? Send pictures of your finds!
