About Dres Swap! Clothing Exchange

Dres Swap! Clothing Exchange

A 1-for-1 Clothing Exchange! Bounce into SPRING stylishly! How would you like to take a pile of clothes out of your closet you don't wear and swapped them for few items you love for only $35?

For many women shopping is a social event; meeting up with your friends and browsing racks and racks of clothing. This is an opportunity to be involved in a gentler form of capitalism. It saves on the environment when we reuse and allows you to be ethically conscious with your fashion.

One person’s trash is another’s treasure. It's exciting to be part of something that is going against the current tide of consumption… People are really excited about the prospect of hunting down a new piece of clothing that would essentially cost nothing, but also about being able to give new life to their old clothing.

RULES

1) Only things in good condition (washed and ironed) will be accepted. Would you loan it to a friend?

2) Accessories are accepted too. Gently worn shoes, handbags, jewelry, scarves and unopened beauty products.

3) Clean out pockets! We are not responsible for any lost items.

4) NO stained clothes, smelly, mildew, holes (un-intentional), moth-eaten sweaters, and no bras or underwear.

5) You must put everything in the dryer (including handbags and shoes) on high heat (at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit) for 10 to 20 minutes. This will kill uninvited guests like bedbugs, clothing moths, carpet beetles and lice. Even dry-clean-only items!!

6) Leave your belongings in the off-limits dressing area so that guests don't mistakenly take things others want to keep. "Once a friend lost her shirt—literally!"

7) BYOB, Bring your own shopping bag. We do not supply them.

8) Ground rules:

      a. Single file line forms at front of door. First come, first selection.

      b. If two friends have their eye or hand on the same thing, raise your hand and someone will come by to flip a coin.

      c. If it’s not in your bag or hand, it’s not yours!

      d. Anyone behaving disrespectfully will be asked to leave
