What: Swap Shop: a one day pop-up shop for trading clothes and goods. It’s fashion rejuvenation in a creative economy.
What Else: $5, swap shop entry fee, plus at least one bag’s worth of swapping goods. Bring good quality stuff. Maybe it’s been sitting around your closet for over a year. Maybe it’s just not a fit in your life anymore. Bring your last year’s trends, your skinny and big jeans, your hot shoes only worn once, your international prints, and more. Go home with a wardrobe’s worth of new looks.
When: Sunday, February 26, 2012 from 1:00 to 4:00pm. (Recommended, so we can organize the swap shop beforehand: clothes and goods to swap can also be dropped off the weekend before (Saturday, Feb. 18 and Sunday, Feb. 19th from 2 to 5:00pm) at Torchlight Arts and Culture Center. ).
Where: Torchlight Arts and Culture Center, 42 E. Church Lane (in Germantown. right off Germantown Ave., 23 bus) the newest venue in the Germantown neighborhood.
We’re inviting fashion-minded folks, artists, community leaders, mamas, papas, designers, performers, neighbors, and more to make this swap have some of the most interesting swap items in Philadelphia. Start 2012 on a fashion inspired tip. There will be light refreshments and music to swap by. Please spread the word. Forward to friends and beyond- the more folks that swap, the better the shop.
