***PLEASE NOTE. We have a member whose 2 year old child has ALL, a form of leukemia. His prognosis is extremely good, but the financial burden on the family is significant. We have NEVER charged a fee for this event. We donate all the setup, all the cleanup, and all the clearing away. You get to de-clutter your home and hopefully stretch your budget. If you can use this as an opportunity to free up a little cash, you can help in one of these ways: use the "donate" box, bring a few dollars with you and put them in the DONATION jar, or send directly via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org and THANK YOU. Sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for every penny of stress you lift from this family.***
Have you ever noticed that going to the mall is "fun," but going through what you have in storage is drudgery? That's because, when you go to the mall, you have a coffee, maybe a pastry, you might meet a friend... you think of it as entertainment and a social occasion, right? GUESS WHAT! That's what we've got going on here!
Come join us for a coffee. Let the kids have a chance to play. And "shop" for a few things to stretch your budget. Whether you need something to tide you over until you lose a little more baby weight or you've nursed off so many pants sizes that your wardrobe could use a little help, grab a few things that don't work for you and come see if there's something that does!
Bring your fat pants and your far-cry-from that pants and LET'S SWAP! Bring your castoffs and some bags to "shop" with and let's swap. We'll have separate areas for mom clothes, kid clothes, and toys/books. (I have scheduled Salvation Army to pick up the leftovers, so you don't need to worry about packing things home.)
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO INVITE A FRIEND IF YOU LIKE. Mom clothes, kid clothes, household items, all are welcome. Everything is 100% FREE of charge to a good home!
***Kids are welcome. I will serve coffee, tea, & soft drinks. Please feel free to bring a treat to share. Weather permitting, the kids will play in the fully fenced back yard during the swap.
Kids clothes, grown up clothes, toys, books, and household items are ALL WELCOME. :)
The Joy Troupe NOVA- bringing families together since 2007!
Remember when you were a kid, and your mom could walk out the back door and run over to a neighbor's house and visit with another mom, and there were always kids nearby to play with? Well, welcome to our neighborhood! We are looking forward to meeting you.
Our kiddos LOVE playing with other kids, and us mamas (and papas, too, of course) need to build our network of families with kids close in age to our own.
All parents and caregivers are welcome to belong and attend. Please join us as we build our community of friends. Big sibs, little sibs, twin sibs, all kinds of sibs are welcome too.
