Do you find yourself with a closet-full of clothes and nothing to wear? Have you been contemplating a wardrobe clean-out since you first heard the name Marie Kondo? Or maybe you’ve been to an Organized for Good clothing swap before and you’ve been waiting for this announcement, knowing that your next great secondhand fashion find is fast approaching. Good news folks. It’s time for our spring swap!
KonMari your clothes and bring items you’re no longer wearing (whatever no longer “sparks joy”) to exchange among a lovely community of women with great style. We’ll be accepting all secondhand clothes (mostly women’s clothes, but there are generally small collections of kids’ and mens’ stuff too). Please no household items, although you have my word that I will do a future household item swap!
Several of our past clothing swaps have supported Austin Pets Alive, so I wanted to show our human community some love this time around; I’ve selected to support Treasure City Thrift, which does excellent work supporting the community, especially those who are socio-economically disadvantaged and disenfranchised. They also share Organized for Good’s mission of diverting as much as possible from landfills, by finding ways to reuse, recirculate, and repurpose what we have and always shopping secondhand first to reduce manufacturing waste.
How to SWAP:
1. Register for the event on Eventbrite to reserve your spot. There is limited capacity so don’t delay!
2. Bring your gently used women's clothing, shoes and accessories with you to the Swap (If you don't need your hangers, bring your hanging items on hangers.
4. When you arrive, you'll confirm registration at the door, make your cash donation for Treasure City Thrift (suggested $10), and hang up your swap items on the designated racks. Once your items have been placed appropriately, you can begin your "swap shopping."
5. Any items on the designated racks or tables are yours for the choosing, and fitting rooms will be available.
6. Any items remaining after 2:30pm will be sorted and donated to Treasure City Thrift and other organizations listed here.
