How to Host A Stuff Swap Party

Are your closets and cupboards overflowing? Invite your friends to do some spring cleaning of their homes, closets, and garages and bring the items that they never use to a stuff swap. Open a few bottles of wine and try on each other’s clothes or swap other household finds. Your best friend may have a cocktail dress that she never wore that would be fabulous for an upcoming event you have. You might find a lamp that doesn’t match your friend’s decor but that would look lovely in your living room.

This is a super fun way to get together with your friends, have a couple of glasses of wine, and go home with a new wardrobe, fabulous piece of furniture, or a great book without spending a dime. If anything is left over at the end of the night, arrange to donate it to your local women’s and children’s shelter.

Would you host a clothes or stuff swap?

    Hi,
    I LOVE swaps and try to write about them as often as I can. There is truly no better way to go green with fashion. I love buying new as much as the next ecodiva…but a good swap can really keep the balance between your closet and your wallet.

    Swap on!
