Swap It Out
How to beat the rainy day Sunday blues? Take a table full of treats, a pitcher of sangria, a “gaggle of festive ladies,” and about 15 bags full of clothing and let the games begin!
I hosted my first clothing swap on Sunday, and despite the torrential downpours, flooded highways, and apocalyptic winds, we had a great turnout, and everyone left with at least a handful of items new to them.
Bridget was a great Emcee for the day, giving descriptions of each item and handing the item around to all interested parties for trying on and bartering. There were a few hot items, but for the most part, we shared well.
One of our swap rules was that when you found something you loved and that fit you just right, you had to wear it for the rest of the swap (or until you found something else equally awesome). This resulted in some pretty hilarious combinations.
Thanks to everyone who came out! I had a great time.
Have any of you ever participated in a clothing swap? What was your experience like? Would you do it again?
