Swap Til You Drop
Sunday, July 21, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
The Di$count Diva & The Recessionista present "Swap Til You Drop."
Are you tired of spending money at the mall?
Do you need to give those credit cards a break?
Do you have a closet full of guilt inducing impulse buys that you don't wear or never worn?
Does your closet need more space?
Bring your once loved Clothing, Shoes, and Accessories to Swap for new-to-you items. To add to the fun, we will have food, massage therapists, manicurists, makeup artists, and so much more!
Here's How It Works:
- Find a minimum of 5 items (of course you can bring more...the more items you bring, the more you can swap) in your wardrobe. All pieces must be gently worn or new , clean, ironed, and brought on hangers.
- Drop your items off on Saturday, July 20th 4pm - 6pm
- You will receive a ticket on Saturday for each item that you bring that is accepted. Your ticket(s) will allow you to select items at the Swap on Sunday.
You don't want to miss the opportunity to shop all the fashionista's of Atlanta's closets!
Swapping is the new shopping! Come and walk away with a whole new wardrobe!
