How to Host a Swap Party
I’m blogging today over at Wisconsin Public Television’s Engage Wisconsin website about how to host a swap party. I recently attended such a party at the home of a friend, and it’s a great incentive for cleaning out closets and cabinets. The idea is that each guest brings used items in good condition from her own home and, in return, can “shop” at the party for items that other people brought. I came home from the recent swap party I attended with a vintage 1970s leather jacket, an adorable green tunic from Anthropologie, and an armload of new books to add to my reading list. To learn how to host one of these parties, read more at Engage Wisconsin.
That is awesome — agreed, sometimes we just get sick of our own clothes, that doesn’t mean someone else’s old clothes aren’t perfect!
Great idea Susan.
Barb–please put me on your invite list 😉
I love this idea. My daughter-in-law has been doing this with several of her friends over the years and totally enjoys it. The fact that whatever is left goes to a charity is perfect. I’ll have to put one together.
Thanks for the post!
This is actually such a great idea. I really want to hold a swap party myself.
