Clothing swap parties are an entertaining way for people to get rid of clothing items they no longer want. This practice of swapping clothes with friends is highlighted in a recent Seattle Times article:
Twice a year, more than a dozen women get together to rifle through everything from clothes and shoes to accessories and shampoo — leaving their excess items behind and going home with new treasures.
On a recent Thursday evening, Sherri Randall’s Eagle, Idaho, living room was strewn with boxes, clothing racks and piles of coats, gowns and jeans, some of which still displayed their original store tags. On a table in a back room were nail polish, a Swiffer sweeper, hair products, sunglasses and more.
“I thought we should gather up all this stuff that doesn’t fit or we don’t wear and share it,” Randall said.
I think this is a great idea, especially if the host agrees to take all the non-swapped items to a charity after the party is over.
