Spring cleaning clothing swap

3/3/24: Spring Cleaning Clothing Swap

Sunday 3/3, 1-5pm at Blue Suede Vintage

Drop swap items off 12-5pm Saturday 2/24, Sunday 2/25, Saturday 3/2 or the day of the swap! Please do not drop off items outside our normal business hours.
​​​​​​​​
Grab a friend and bring your gently used clothing and accessories to swap them for new-to-you pieces! ​​​​​​​​All genders, all sizes, all eras (vintage & modern) all clothing welcome! ​​
​​​​​​​​
Never been to a swap before? No prob! Here are some things to expect:​​​​​​​​

💙 YOUR TRASH IS SOMEONE’S TREASURE
The basic idea is to gather up quality items you no longer wear and bring them to swap out with other community members. This helps to recycle clothing, reduce waste, and save folks some money!​​​​​​​​

💙 ITEM LIMITS​​​​​​​​
Please do not bring more than one construction bag full of items! The general idea is to take as much as you bring i/e bring a bag full/take a bag full, or bring 5 items/take 5 items, etc. but usually there is more than enough to go around!​​​​​​​​

💙 CLEAN YOUR ITEMS BEFOREHAND​​​​​​​​
Make sure your items are clean, and in wearable condition (minor rips or stains are okay), a good rule of thumb is if you would wear it, it’s probably safe to say someone else would, too!

💙 YES, SHOES & ACCESSORIES ARE OKAY!
We'll have the space for you to swap shoes, jewelry, purses, and other accessories if you'd like!

The last hour of the swap, you may take whatever you want, regardless of the number of items you've brought yourself! Leftover items may be given away, donated, sold, recycled, or put into a cannon and shot into space- whatever deemed necessary by organizers!

ADDITIONAL TIPS:

  • Wear snug clothing to the swap that you can easily try things on over. BSV fitting rooms will not be available for free items.
  • Know your measurements. It's helpful to roughly know these in advance and bring a measuring tape.
  • We will do our best to make this event accessible. Weather dependent, this may be happening downstairs in our very old building. If that's the case, we will be happy to make accommodations (like virtual swapping) if needed.
  • Come and shop, too! The clothing swap is happening alongside our regular store hours, but we are trying to keep swap items separate from our inventory available for sale.
  • Email us if you have any questions, or DM us on Instagram!
