Swap - Don’t Shop clothing swap party

When I received a request to share this event with you, I couldn’t resist. It’s just so grassroots and sounds like a lot of fun. Swap parties are also an inexpensive and green way to refresh your wardrobe, clean out your closet and give to those in need.

Swap - Don’t Shop clothing swap party: A fun and frugal way to revamp your wardrobe

Come out to our first bi-monthly clothing swap party with all of the unwanted clothing taking up space in your closet and drawers, and leave with bags of wonderful new wardrobe favourites!

All womens’ clothing, shoes, jewelery and other accessories (except undies) in clean and in good condition are welcome.

103 Bellevue Ave.
St. Stephen-in-the-Fields church (at College, between Bathurst and Spadina) (map)

Saturday, Aug. 16
11 a.m.-2 p.m.

11 a.m.: Drop off your clothes, socialize, and enjoy the yummy snacks and drinks.
Noon: The swapping frenzy begins!

At the end of the day, all unclaimed clothing will be donated to a local charity: Dress Your Best.

How Much?
$5 to cover the cost of food, drinks and location rental fee.

  1. Very cool. I just might have to check this out.

  2. Rayanne, I think it's pretty cool too. Toronto Street Fashion used to organize swap events too. The one I attended had a stylist on hand for free consults.

    It you go, do tell.

  3. this sounds fun! reminds me of the shoeaholics anonymous book where they swap shoes!

  4. What a great idea - I'd love to start one of those in my neck of the woods but might wait til I move back to Vancouver...

  5. mgtv, please let us know if you decide to start your own clothing swap party. I'd be happy to let people know.
