Clothing & Music Swap TOMORROW!

We are very excited to be participating in this year's Green Culture Festival! It's an annual free celebration that showcase environmental initiatives while raising money to support green community projects.

Because we have limited space, this swap is going to be a bit different from our usual events. We ask that people bring a maximum of 10 items (clothes, shoes, accessories, cds & records in excellent condition are welcome). You will get a ticket for each item you bring, which you can exchange for any swap items you want to take. At the end of the day, all unclaimed clothing will be donated to planet aid, and music will go to goodwill. For more info on the Green Culture Festival check out their website.

It's happening tomorrow, Sunday, August 30 from 11am-2pm at Bellevue Square Park.
