Welcome to a whole new way of shopping... Swap - Don't shop -for all the clothing, shoes and accessories you can take home!
This swap is for all of our curvey ladies sizes 14 and up!

Please bring at least 5 pieces of clothing and 2 accessories (jewelry, handbags, scarves etc.) to add to our tables.

Drop off your clothing @ 12:30- swap time begins promptly at 2:00 (not before)


Stop by the check in table and pay your $7.00 charitable contribution. (or $5 pre-paid online via paypal to

I have been busy all month securing items from the good people of etsy and around town for great raffle items and swag bag items! Please take the time to visit our sponsor's sites and support their small businesses! We couldn't raise money for RAINN without these sponsors so please.. show your gratitude and support to them!

There will be no "waiting line" as we are using a new facility and they have requested that our members wait in the cafeteria down the hall. There are seats outside of the room but you are NOT to wait there. Please go to the cafeteria.

After you drop off your items, you are expected to leave and come back at 2:00. Or you can hang around, maybe shop with the vendors that will be set up (bring some cash- there will be lots to choose from)... and enjoy our DJ Kat who will be entertaining us again! I will open the swap up 5 minutes early to those who volunteered to help set up. Each volunteer can choose 4 items for themselves in the 5 minutes given. There will be a 50/50 raffle to benefit the school's debate team so please bring a few bucks if you plan on purchasing a ticket or two.

SarahJean is our new volunteer coordinator. Please message her directly on Meetup if you would like to be a volunteer. Spaces for volunteering are limited and each volunteer will be given a badge to identify them so if you are really wanting to volunteer, contact SarahJean soonest to make sure you get a spot.

We are also open to vendors for this swap for the mere price of $50.00 per table plus 1 item to raffle!

If you plan on purchasing anything from any of the vendors listed on the left- please remember to bring cash - - -

DJ KAT will be laying down tunes for our swap so come prepared to dance!

Some money will be recouped for the soda I provide & any supplies I purchase  and the rest will go to RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network)
Swap from 2PM - 4PMish - we will pack up earlier than 4 if everyone clears out early. Please come on time;)Clothing drop off from 12:30-1:30 Volunteers - please arrive at 12:15 to set up the tables. Please be prompt as we have less time to set up now.

Make sure clothing is clean, no stains, no holes, rips or tears and no broken buttons or zippers. If you would be PROUD to pass it on to your girlfriends, than you should bring it. Please do not bring undergarments. To avoid having stained and ripped items as some people bring regardless of the rules, we now reserve the right to go through your clothing at the drop off point to ensure your items are decent enough to swap. Please don't embarress yourselves by bringing undesirable clothing.  We're looking for clothing from any season for this swap. If you should find something unswappable on any of the tables, please remove it. No one should be disappointed because it's everyone's jobs to police the tables for non-wearables;)

If you are bringing guests, please ensure to add them to your RSVP.

Last, but not least, bring your swaptastik attitude and plan to come and have a blast!

Please take pictures of yourselves with your swap finds and post it on meetup and facebook! We'd love to see what you all have found!

Happy Swapping!


PS. Do not volunteer to help in the comments section... Contact SarahJean on Meetup to get on the volunteer list. If you show up to help and you are not on the list, there will NOT be a spot for you. Last swap we had way too many volunteers so this should help streamline things.
