Now I am going to be having a clothes swap in the next week or so.
So here is an idea of what I will probably be doing:
day: Saturday or Sunday
time: midday + - i think 2 or 3pm is a good time for people to be over their hangovers
invites: extended to all friends/ lj friends / friends of friends so long as they respect my home ( or whoever else lets mehave a clothes swap at their house)
to bring: clothes! any unwanted/too big/too small/wrong colour/ old/ unflattering/ unused clothes lurking in your wardrobe. and refreshments if you like, though probably non alcoholic it being just after lunchtime! oh and LOTS of plastic shopping bags to take home your finds.
how it will go:
The swap will take place in the lounge or other room with a large floor space. Clothes will be placed in piles on the floor (which will have been thoroughly vaccuumed etc beforehand :P) and drinks/ maybe snacks will be had to start off with. It will be a case of first in first served. Each different pile will be a different person's items. And you will pick a pile and take what you like. If there is a problem in that more than one person would like the one item, then the original owner of the item will make the choice as to who gets to have the item. If a fair decision cannot be made, then the item will go to the salvation army or another charity!
Now what do you think of that as a way to run a clothes swap? any feedback would be helpful thanks!
