What is a Clothing Swap?
A clothing swap is a way to recycle gently used or even new items from your closet that you don't want with items from someone else's closet that they don't want anymore. Clothing swaps are considered a good way to both declutter and refill one's wardrobe. And thus, we challenge you to clean out your closet!
How does the Swap Work?
You must bring items to one of the 5 swap drop locations before the event in order to participate in the swap (ie: choose items at the swap). You will receive a receipt with the number of items that you are dropping off on it. That is how many items you will be able to get at the swap (ie: give 5, get 5). There is a 5 item minimum to swap.
Do I have to purchase a ticket to swap and attend the event?
Yes, you must purchase a ticket to participate in the swap and attend the event. Tickets are available at www.girlpowerhour.com/get-tickets.
What if I want to attend the event but I don't want to participate in the Swap?
You can attend if you purchase a ticket.
What if I want to clean out my closet and donate some items but I don’t want to swap or attend?
We will include your items in the event for others to swap for. All left over items will be donated to the Jubilee Women’s Center, a transitional housing center for homeless women in crisis intervention. Please drop all items at one of the swap drop locations.
