Vintage Clothing Swap!

I'm super excited that Swap Don't Shop! will be hosting our first Vintage Clothing Swap next month! Vintage means different things to different people, but we're going by Etsy rules, which means anything pre-mid 90s is fair game.

As usual, you'll get a ticket for each good quality vintage item you bring (max. 30 tickets). Each ticket can then be redeemed for a new swap find.

We're offering advanced tickets, this time around, though. As well as saving a bit of time at the door (and we all know that it only takes a few seconds to miss out on that awesome dress you spotted), if you buy in advance you'll get an extra 2 clothing tickets! Tickets can be purchased via the 'Book It' button in the sidebar, our facebook page, or our uniiverse event page.

Details are below:

Vintage Clothing Swap
Saturday, November 9
Arts Market, 846 College St. 

All vintage (20+ years old) clothing, shoes, and other accessories (with the exception of socks & undies) that are clean and in good condition are welcome.

The swap starts at noon, but feel free to arrive any time after 11:30am to drop off your clothes.

At the end of the day, all of the clothing that is left will be donated to charity.
