The Clothing Exchange
Join us at the 3rd annual JP Clothing Exchange at First Church in Jamaica Plain, MA.
The Clothing Exchange: Swap Don't Shop is a clothing swap for both men and women. Swapping is a fantastic 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!
UPDATE!!! This year we feature DJ D'JOY spinning music to swap by! Dance and groove as you update your wardrobe - all for a great cause.

First Church, Unitarian Universalist in Jamaica Plain
6 Eliot Street (near the Monument)
Jamaica Plain, MA
Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door (cash only)
One free non-alcoholic beverage is included in ticket price
Proceeds benefit First Church, Unitarian Universalist and Goodwill Industries of Massachusetts.
Here's how the Clothing Exchange works:
For both men and women. (Sorry, no children's clothing at this time) Bring your new, like-new or gently worn and clean items to swap: clothing, shoes, hats, bags, belts, scarves, jackets, outerwear (no underwear!) jewelry, and accessories. All sizes and all seasons both men's and women's items are welcome. Please put jewelry into ziplock bags, and pin things together that come in pairs so they stay that way (like gloves & mittens).
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, and the event organizers have the final say as to what's swappable and what's not. We won't accept swimsuits, undies, anything stained, ripped, or otherwise damaged beyond repair.
We swap on a one-for-one exchange, which means that for each swappable item you bring, you'll get a ticket. You get to bring home one item for each ticket you receive. Cool! The more you bring to the swap, the more you go home with!
All remaining items will be donated to Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries of Massachusetts.
Two Options for clothing drop-off:
:: ADVANCE Drop-Off: Saturday morning 10:45 to 11:30
:: Or, just arrive at 12:30 with your stuff for swapping
