SWAPmaine Holiday Swap Soiree!
Time to get your sparkle on! The SWAPmaine team is throwing an extra special holiday clothing swap on Wednesday, December 5, from 6 to 9 pm, and you should probably be there. (Yeah, you should definitely be there).
Here's how it works!
1. Buy a ticket right now to reserve your space because only 75 lucky swappers will get to attend! We know it's a little more expensive than our regular swaps, but all the proceeds go to Goodwill Industries of Northern New England, AND it's gonna be so classy that you're definitely going to need a top hat and a monocle.
2. To prepare, find the 5 classiest items in your closet that you're ready to part with (polyester bridesmaid dress- probably not, cashmere sweater set- probably yes!)and pack them neatly in a velvet box (or paper bag, we're not picky).
3. Make sure to throw on your best sparkle (or not sparkle, we're flexible) cocktail dress and prepare for an evening of enchantment at the Swap Soiree!
4. Bring your ticket, swap items and your fabulous self to the Mariner's Church Banquet Hall in Portland (368 Fore Street, third floor) and hand over your velvet boxed swap booty to the SWAPmaine team, and receive your limited edition Swap Soiree swag tote.
Mingle, cocktail, and nibble hors d'ouvres from 6 to 7 pm while you browse, and paw adoringly at the racks filled with premium swappables. Or perhaps you can pick up some face meltingly gorgeous vintage jewelry and accessories at the Goodwill mini-boutique (credit cards, checks and cash will be accepted) while you wait for the swap to commence.
The swap portion of the evening will start at 7 pm, so set down that cocktail, it's time to swap! Because we have a small group and a super prime selection, there will be plenty of time to try on your selections and choose the exact perfect 5 items to warm up your holiday wardrobe.
Have another drink, eat another cookie, mingle a bit more and show off your swag to our event photographer Corey Templeton (of portlanddailyphoto.com fame). Your gorgeous mug could end up on the SWAPmaine website!
At 9 pm, when the swapping has come to a delicious end, pack up your tote, take off your heels, and head home. Your cat would probably really enjoy a fashion show of all your glorious new stuff.
If you have any questions regarding acceptable levels of glitter, dimensions of velvet boxes, or would like to make sure that Corey Templeton knows your good side in advance, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
