Clothing Swap Coming at Samsara, March 22, 2020

Join us for another Community-Wide Swap, here’s what to expect…

Clothing swaps are like shopping at a vintage or thrift store, but free!

We all have those items of clothing that have been taking up space in our closets but that we never feel inspired to wear, those are the items that might make someone else happier. Just as the name implies, everybody is encouraged (but not required) to bring lightly used items (no stains, tears, fading,) help set out your items (we’ll direct you where,) and exchange for others. You can bring just one item, ten, a bag full, or none. Arrive to the studio around 15 minutes before 2:00 pm to help set up and display what you’ve brought. If you can’t get there till later, no problem, arrive anytime throughout the time slot, no need to be there right at the beginning. People come and go as they please.Clothing 

There is no judgement, we are a welcoming space full of welcoming people, the vibe at swaps is lighthearted and fun; it’s like having a room full of personal shoppers, new and old friends letting you know just how good that top looks on you!

It is very important to us to express that this event is open to all people of all ages, shapes and sizes. This season’s event is co-hosted by Ample Movement meaning that we are working hard to provide a welcoming environment to our plus size friends. Sizes ranging from small to 20 & 3XL will be at the swap as well as whatever everyone brings along.
