Clothing Swap At The Wise Hall July 24th & September 18th

20 Jul

AClothesMargaritRalev.jpgn interesting event is happening at the Wise Hall, 1882 Adanac Street, this Sunday, July 24th, 2016. It’s a Clothing Swap. So if are looking to purge those closets and get something new, this could be the event for you. This is how it works.  The cost to participate is a one time cost of $10 (cash only) to cover the cost of the venue.  Between 12:30 pm and 1:00 pm you are asked to drop off your clothing and your $10 payment.  Volunteers will then sort the items you’ve dropped off and from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm you are asked to come back and wander about and pick out some new digs. There is no limit as to the number of items you are allowed to take, but organizers ask that stick to the items that actually fit you. Items that are acceptable for the Clothing Swap include washed women and men’s clothing, shoes, accessories and jewelry.  Note registration is required for this event. To do that for this Sunday’s event, or the upcoming event in September, you should contact besteventsinvancouver@gmail.com.   All leftover clothing will be donated to a local non-profit charity, so all around a win win situation. For more information, visit their Facebook page.
