I am so excited about this! You know how much I love clothing swaps - so much that I wrote this 'how-to-host-a-swap-party' page here. It's such an environmentally friendly and cost effective way to get some new-to-you clothes and clean out your closet.
A few months ago, Lyndsey of A Lovely Little Blog came up with the idea to do a large-scale clothing swap here in Akron. She got a few of us Akron bloggers together to help plan it - Jessica of Midwest Muse and Jessi of They like me better blonde, Lyndsey and myself put our heads together to come up with some ideas for the event and everything is starting to come together!
It's going to be May 20th at Studio MC and it's only $5 to join in! <Plus some of those clothes you were going to swap or donate anyway.> If you don't have clothes to donate, just pay $15 and you can still join the party! We are going to have a few hour-long time slots so it doesn't get too crazy. You get to shop the swapped items based on how much you give. You'll drop off the clothes you're swapping before hand so we can go through it first - Plato's Closet style - then we'll let you know how many "clothing points" you acquire.
If you're from Ohio (or want to travel!) I hope you'll try to make it, we'd love to have you!
There are going to be some awesome vendors there and we have some awesome sponsors lined up like Earth Fare (the healthy supermarket), Goodwill and MC Hair Consultants.
Be sure to check out the 330 Swap & Shop Blog (I'm telling you, this is legit, people!) for more info and to register. We can't wait to meet you!
