Spring Fling Clothes Swap
Swapping is fun! It's a great way to revitalize your wardrobe AND it is also a super environmentally-friendly thing to do. You're diverting clothes from landfill, cutting carbon emissions, opting for fashion without exploitation AND saving money!
Here's how it works: Bring your new, like-new or gently worn and clean items to swap: clothing, shoes, hats, bags, belts, scarves, jewelry, accessories. All sizes and all seasons welcome. Please put jewelry into ziplock bags, and pin things together that come in pairs so they stay that way.
Remember: bring something that you are proud to pass on. If you wouldn't lend it to a friend, don't bring it to the swap! We screen garments to uphold the quality. Event organizers have the final say is what's swappable and what's not!
Swapping is done on a one-for-one exchange. For each swappable item you bring, you'll get a ticket. You get to go home with as many items as you brought!
Anything left over after the swap will be donated to Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries of Massachusetts.
