Event description
Swap, don't shop! Celebrate Earth Day by joining a Twin Cities local clothing swap! Fight fast fashion and exchange with your community.

About this Event

In honor of Earth Day on Thursday, April 22nd, 2021, we invite you to finish your spring cleaning by bringing your old, gently used clothes to this local clothing swap.

A clothing swap is a clothing exchange where people share their once loved, and gently used clothing with others who share theirs. Just gather your unwanted clothes from last year or any season and bring them to the swap where they may find a new home, new style and live on for many more years. Search piles of other peoples items to build your wardrobe in a no cost exchange between fashion lovers.

One of the most obvious benefits of swapping your clothes is the benefit to the environment. Clothing swaps promote slow fashion vs. fast fashion and are an environmentally friendly reuse strategy that helps reduce our environmental footprint while supporting a circular economy. Besides, you'll get a fresh wardrobe, at no additional charge while building community and donating to those in need. All leftover clothing will be donated locally. A true win-win shopping experience!

Swap til you drop at one of the coolest buildings in St. Paul. The Creators Space/Cafe is a shared artist workspace with specialty rooms for all. It's more than an open space cafe with delicious food, or an art gallery showcasing local artist work of all kinds. It is also a home for all types of artist who use the many shared creative spaces like the pottery studio, painters studio or dance/fitness studio to grow and build. Healers and creatives of all kinds gather in perfectly outfitted spaces to hold mediations, public classes and host private clients. A beautifully diverse space with diverse members and customers. Join us for an epic clothing swap in honor of Earth Day 2021.

Take a look at our swap rules:

We are accepting clothing and accessories from all genders, sizes and seasons: Tops, shirts, blouses, button ups, vests, bottoms, leggings, tights, jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses, suits, fitness wear, swim suits, robes, belts, hats, purses, bags, shoes, boots and so much in between.

NO: children's or baby clothes, jewelry, undergarments, socks, bras or boxers. All clothes items must be freshly washed and free of pet hair and household smells.

So fresh and so clean: All clothing items must be freshly washed. No items with household smells or pet hair.

One man's trash...is still trash: Please only bring freshly washed, reuseable clothing items. No holes, smells, stains, broken zippers, missing buttons, rips, pet hair, etc.

Sharing is caring: While there will be no ticket/token system to regulate what each person brings and takes, remember to be fair, courteous and generous with one another.

Duel at dawn: If two people discover the same item at the same time, the dispute must be settled with rock, paper, scissors OR a coin toss. All results are final.

Give us recycled life: The Best Swap Upcycled Look wins a set of reuseable freezer bags! Awarded in the LiveTV Events Facebook group after the event.*

Covid Precautions: Everyone must wear a mask at all times and practice social distancing while swapping. Only 25 people will be allowed in the swap room at once. Those waiting can visit the art gallery, grab a cup of coffee, take a look at the artist shop or explore the space until you are called to join with your items.

Parking: There is on street metered parking available in front of Creator's Space. Download the St. Paul parking app Passport to conveniently park and pay. There is also a pay lot kiddie corner to Creators Space for about $5. Carpools encouraged.
