The Makehouse Holiday Frock Exchange
Wednesday, November 21st, 2012
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The holiday season is around the corner and if you're like us you have a full closet but nothing to wear. Sometimes you fall in love with a dress at the store, but only wear it a couple of times before deciding it’s just not your style anymore. After all, styles and trends change so quickly; who knows what you’re going to like a few months or a year from now. All of those unworn clothes start to take up precious space in your closet, but just throwing them out isn’t an option. So how do you clean out your closet AND find new clothes to add to your wardrobe that you WILL wear?
This season we are hosting a HOLIDAY FROCK EXCHANGE at The Makehouse
Date: Wednesday November 21st
Venue: The Makehouse @ 833 1/2 Fort Street
This swap is only for dresses, tops & skirts suited for dressing up over the holiday season!
The swap is potluck so please bring along either something to drink or some nibbles.
Here are a few swap rules...
Each garment that you bring is worth one token, which can be exchanged for something else. It's a one for one concept that makes for easy swapping. We will provide you with a shopping bag to take your new loot home!
If you pick it up and try it on first - it's yours. This rule has always worked in every swap I've been to. If you love it too don't get green-eyed - just get over it and find something else! There's always plenty of clothes to go around!
We ask that everyone label their clothing by size [this can just be a paper or tag pinned to each garment [safety pins please!]
All clothing should be clean and free of stains, holes, or major damage. It’s true that “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” but no one wants to be stuck with actual trash.
We hope to see you there!
