Something must be done! I want more clothes, but I don’t have the money to buy them. My friends feel the same way. Let’s trade!
I have been wanting to do a clothing swap for quite a while, now. I read about doing a clothing swap in one of Nina Garcia’s books, and I fell completely in love with the idea: get rid of your unwanted clothes and obtain new clothes for free!
My friend Molly took the plunge and actually created an event on Facebook for a clothing swap. The event became popular enough that it needed to move to a bigger apartment – my place! Woohoo! Party at my house! (Sorry, Josh. Girls only.)
We each brought our bags of unwanted clothes, shoes, and accessories. Everyone brought what they wanted to get rid of, and everyone took home whatever they wanted to take home (i.e., no bartering system). We had quite a nice setup with a full-length mirror and dressing rooms handy.
Ultimately, the dressing rooms were ignored, and we changed in the middle of the living room. But, Jamie was the only boy there, and he didn’t mind:
Eating was an important part of this party,
but we pretty much focused on dressing ourselves beautifully:
All in all, we each made out like a bandit:
And even the Mission Mart will get a piece of the action!
Did I have fun? You bet. Would I do this again? In a heartbeat. I encourage you to have your own clothing swap! It’s cool. It’s green. It’s clever.
