Swap til you drop clothing exchange! Bring Your Own Bag - and swap the day away. This event is dependent on people bringing items in. The more you bring in the more we will have to swap! So clean out your closets!

What is clothing exchange? It's a chance to:
Declutter - Clean out your closet and find items to swap and have fun!

Attend - Bring unwanted items in great condition. Men's, Women's and kids clothing is welcome!

Relax, mingle, and sip on great handcrafted coffee and tasty treats available for purchase from The Coffee Factory while you browse and SWAP.

Come any time during the swap and stay as long as you like...there are no time limits or times to drop off items. Just come any time between 11am and 4pm and swap away.

This event is meant to be simple and fun; and to also help de-clutter some closets. We aren’t a consignment shop, this is simply clean out your closet and have fun. We will have tables set up. If you have items you don't want, bring them in and put them on a table. You see something you like...it's yours...it's as simple as that! This isn't a one for one trade. No selling allowed! Take home your favorite outfits for FREE!

In the spirit of fun and fair trading...we hope everyone will take and give within reason and fairly.

Any items left at the end of the swap will be donated to a local charity. Any items left at the end of the swap will be donated to an organization, helping families right here in Muskegon County.

What to Bring: Swappable items. All sizes welcome. Men's, Womens, Kids.

Swappable items include quality wardrobe items that you'd typically consign or donate. Items must be CLEAN (freshly laundered) and in very good condition.

Most swap-worthy items fall in 3 categories:

NEW Clothes (with tags)
NEARLY NEW Clothes (worn only once or twice)
GENTLY USED Clothing (worn, but still in very good condition)

Please take a bit of time to purge your wardrobe prior to our event. Don't forget to go through your dresser, closets, armoire, under the bed, storage, etc.
Gather all the perfectly good wardrobe items that you no longer wear or use. Unused stuff clutters your life. Say buh-bye to them with bliss, as you let go of items you no longer wear and make space for new-to-you pieces that you actually WILL wear.
