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.

SWAP FROM 12:30pm to 3pm
