What is a clothes swap?
For more than 10 years my friends and I have been swapping clothes! Not being a CA native, I met most of my close friend through Real Estate and 2 mom’s clubs. Every 6 months, we gather at someone’s home and bring clean, gently worn items – sweaters, dresses, jewelry, purses, belts – really anything! In the beginning, if you brought 6 items, you went home with 6 items. Now it has turned into a free-for-all. I try and bring at least a big trash bag full of clothes and then only come home with 4-5 special items. Here is why: MARIE KONDO! (one of my favorite books) More than 100 women are E-VITED and usually 25+ show. All of bring food and drinks to share and all of us help clean up after. We sometimes have more thab 20 bags of clothing leftover which we divide up and take to local shelters. No men are allowed as most of us are trying on clothes all over the house and helping each other style. Recently, our teenage daughters have been joining us! Contact me if you want any tips on throwing a great Ladies Night Event where eveyone leaves happy. I think.
