How to Host a Clothing & Accessories Swap

This past weekend I hosted my very first clothing & accessories swap! I have been to a couple of clothing swaps and thought it was a great way to get your girlfriends together to raid each others closets while sipping on some drinks and eating some good food. 

So what is a clothing swap you might be asking?

Clothing swaps are a great way to get some new clothes & accessories..FOR FREE!! How it works: Everyone brings gently used, and washed, clothing, shoes, and accessories that they want to get rid of. Guests should bring things that are in decent shape that they would be willing to give up. Choose someone's home to host the swap at. A community room or living room that you can turn into a little Forever 21 is perfect! Separate everyone's stuff into certain areas in the room (ie: accessories corner, shorts on the coffee table, pants on the couch). Once everyone's stuff is displayed, you can either let everyone freely shop around for stuff they want OR you can do it by categories- everyone takes a number and one at a time chooses from the shirts, then shorts, then accessories, etc.!

Always make sure you have food and drinks. Engage your guests by asking them to bring a snack or drink!

Clothing swaps are always a lot of fun soooo raid your closet, throw stuff in a bag, and host one with your girlfriends. If you have any items left behind, donate them to a local shelter.
