New location, new date…same great swap!
Over the past ten years, Perennial’s grassroots community clothing swaps have grown beyond what we could have imagined. We’ve heard your feedback that space at the workshop has gotten tight and it’s become difficult to get a ticket to the swap before they sell out. We are thrilled to announce the next swap will take place on Saturday August 26th from 10:00am – 12:00pm at the Quaker Meeting House at 1001 Park Avenue (just 6 minutes from Perennial). This will give us double the space to spread out, serve more folks, and accept more donations!
How exactly does it work?
We will be accepting clothing donations prior to the swap at the Meeting House (see dates and details below) so volunteers can pre-sort all items. No clothing donations will be accepted the day of the swap. You can donate clothes in good condition even if you are not planning to attend to ensure we have a wide selection. Volunteers will sort the clothes by item in advance and swappers will be able to browse and select clothes just like at a store. The great news is, unlike a store, you won’t pay by item for things you take home. Instead, we will weigh your clothes to know how many pounds we are diverting from the landfill.
What’s included in my ticket?
Clothes, community, coffee, and cookies!
When and where can I drop off clothes to donate to the swap?
Donations can be dropped off at the Meeting House on the following dates and times:
- Saturday, August 19th: 9am – 3pm
- Wednesday-Friday, August 23-25: 3-7pm
You do not need to purchase a ticket to donate clothing!
