St. Louis Clothing Swap


A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Cristina, a grad student at Wash U here in St. Louis, asking if I wanted to join in the fun of a clothing swap, to which I will always say "yes!" We used to do these among our circle of friends in Santa Monica, with everyone bringing whatever they were itching to get rid of from their closets, and we'd throw it all in one room while people went in one by one to get one item at a time. The rest of us would hang out in the living room, where there were snacks and drinks, and it turned into a great time of hanging out, meeting new people and trading in something older for something new to you.

So, I wanted to officially extend an invitation to whomever would like to attend the swap, which will be at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 31. Cristina has set up the event on Meetup.com, where can you see all the fine print, but the basic rules are you bring at least 3 items to swap that are in good condition. Everyone pays a $2 entry fee to help take care of organizing costs, and we'll be setting up tables according to size to make finding something that will fit a bit easier.

Since it's the first swap, the max attendance was set at 40, of which only 29 spots are left (but please, please, please don't sign up unless you are 100% sure you'll be there, otherwise it eats up a spot that could go to someone else). To RSVP, you have to sign up for a Meetup.com account (which is free), then go to the event homepage and let us know if you'll be attending.

Once all is said and done, everything that's left will be donated to the Salvation Army.

Hope to see you there!
