The 8th Annual WHO/O Solidarity Clothing Swap

March 6, 2020 4:30 pm @ 4:30 pm - March 7, 2020 6:00 pm @ 6:00 pm

Our closets are overflowing with incredible clothes that no longer bring us joy, accessories bought on a whim, shoes that have only been worn once or twice, so many feminist joys, and all this has much more life left!

How it works: entry is $10; tickets are available online at www.womenhaveoptions.org/clothing_swap or at the door. Empty your closets of unwanted items that are gently or never used and bring them to St. John’s Church on March 6 to get your ticket that allows you to take unlimited items at the swap the next day.

A massive amount of clothing will be available during the exchange and volunteers will arrange it into our fabulous swap boutique. The swap is from 11am-6pm on Saturday; come any time and stay as long as you wish.

If you bring clothes on the day of the exchange, you may take as many items as you brought, in addition to the complimentary 10 items with your ticket. Dressing areas will be available to try things on.

At the end of the swap, leftover items will be donated to various community groups, including those serving teens in need, LGBTQ youth, rural career closets, prom programs, refugee and immigrant groups, shelters, and the Volunteers of America Thrift Store. The full, fluid, and beautiful range of genders and presentations are welcome at the swap! We work hard to make sure everyone is comfortable attending and participating as who they are.

Bring feminist goodies to find a new home! Items should be clean and in good condition (no holes, rips, stains). If you don’t think others would wear it, please do not bring it.

PARENTS, this event is for you too! We will be offering childcare, so please let us know how many little ones you are bringing by emailing [email protected] with the SUBJECT: Swap Childcare. We will get back to you to confirm ages and other important information.

Note that there is FREE parking at the Franklin County Parking Lot. There is construction on Mound Street, but the garage is open. Just go through the open gate, or if you get a ticket, bring it in so we can stamp it. You can enter the swap on the East side of the church, through the double glass doors or the accessible elevator entrance.
