Clothing Swap Success

A few weeks ago, a very good friend of mine held a clothing swap. The last one she held at her house was so successful, that this time she chose to use the parish hall at her church to accommodate the almost 40 people who came.

If you’re not familiar with the concept, its a gathering of people (usually women) who bring in all the clothes they no longer want and then “shop” the clothes brought by others. No money changes hands. There isn’t a minimum “donation” and one is welcome to take whatever clothing they desire. What nobody wants goes to charity. (My friend’s swap was so successful that there were probably 500 or more articles of clothing donated to charity.)

Here are some photos taken by Elaine, one of the other guests:
