If you live near or around the metro D.C. area – You should definitley join our clothing swap and RSVP for an upcoming event! What started out as a tiny swap with less than 20 gals turned into a huge success with now over 600! Can you imagine? Our next swap will be held on January 9th at the Dewan Cafe in Falls Church, VA. and we have over 200 rsvp’s already!!! Amazing!
What’s so great about the next two swaps is that we have teamed up with the Boston Swapaholics for the National Swap Day 2011! We’re trying to get the word out to as many possible clothing swap groups to ban together and support this amazing National event!
As you must know by now, Clothing Swaps have spread like wildfire all over the country. Why? Because they offer so many things. First, they help you to clean out your closets and re-organize your living space. Who doesn’t need that? I know I do, and often! I always have my closets jam packed with items I never wear for one reason or another. It’s time to purge your wardrobes ladies and gain some new-to-you fashions!
Next is because they are green events, saving our planet from over used landfills. Trade what you have rather than send it to the dump.
They are charitable events as well! Not all swaps donate the remaining clothing to the same places and that’s okay, but our group donates to local domestic violence shelters to help battered families get back on their feet. We think it’s a very worthy cause since domestic violence touches so many lives.
Our swap is also a glam event being that we have hair stylists, nail designers, make up artists and sometimes even a masseuse to give our attendees free glam time! Our entry fee is ZERO… We never charge for our guests to come in and participate! Imagine that!
The economy has been really bad lately so coming to a free event where you can trade in your well maintained, stylish duds sounds lie and is a great idea for so many reasons!
So – our next two swaps will be
January 9th, 2011 from 2-5 at the Dewan Cafe in Falls Church, VA
February 27th, 2011 from 1-4 at the Franconia Governmental Center in Alexandria, VA.
