Event Navigation

Most folks purchase tickets at the door for our clothing swaps! You can purchase your ticket in advance to make your check-in process simpler and shorter, but we will sell tickets at the door.

Be sure to RSVP on Facebook and invite all your favorite folks!

Perennial’s Community Clothing Swap is an amazing way to get a new wardrobe with the earth in mind! You bring clothes you no longer want (but are still in fine shape) and take home new-to-you items from the swap.

Each clothing swap is set-up like a department store (all shirts in one spot, all pants in another, etc.) Our amazing volunteers sort and stock the racks and tables, and you get to enjoy a whirlwind shopping experience.

You can pre-purchase ticket through our website or purchase them at the door — either way is fine.

Join us for all six of our Community Clothing Swaps in 2020: February 9, April 26, June 14, August 9, October 11, December 13.

SWAP FAQs:

How does it work?
Bring items that are still in good shape to the swap. Pay the door fee (benefits Perennial’s programs). Our volunteers will help put out all the items on clothing racks and tables. You can take whatever and however much you would like. Shop from men’s and women’s clothing.

What does it cost to attend?
It’s just $10 if you bring clothes to swap. Don’t have clothes to swap? Pay $15 at the door to shop the swap without contributing clothing.

Is it worth it?
You bet ya! With over 100 folks in attendance, the swap features all styles, shapes, and sizes. There is something for everyone. Just think, you could leave the swap with a whole new-to-you wardrobe for just $10. And you helped a local non-profit, too. A win-win!

Can I pay at the door?
Yep! You can pay at the door. Or grab your ticket online in advance.

What items can I bring?
Dresses / Shorts / Jackets + Coats / Skirts / Shirts / Pants / Shoes / Jewelry / Bags / Hats / Scarves / Gloves

Can I donate kids clothing?
Sorry, we are not accepting kids clothes for the swap. Just clothing and accessories for adults!

What happens to the leftover clothing?
Immediately after the Community Clothing Swap, Perennial volunteers take the items that can be used in the workshop for classes and events.  Then, the leftover items are donated to Remains, Inc., a local textile recycling company.

Can I volunteer?

Clothing swaps wouldn’t happen without our amazing volunteers! We sometimes look for additional volunteers to sort clothing during the swap.  Must be willing to work in a fast-paced environment to quickly sort and hang clothes and get them out to floor as donations come in throughout the swap.  For more information email info@perennialstl.org to be contacted about future volunteer
