Taking what you no longer like in your closet – either because it doesn’t fit right, your style has changed, or you’ve worn it to 20 weddings already – thought it’s still on trend and in good, wearable condition….
… and offering to others to take home. So the more individual contributions there are, the more items there are to choose from for swappers. Once you’re in the swap, you take as many new-to-you items as you want. The more variety the better!
Racks full of clothes to ‘shop.’
New people to meet and mingle with.
A sweet new re-usable bag to take home.
Ruffian Swap: What To Expect This Fall
@RachLaroche talks about @RuffianSwap at the @LaunchPadNOLA Launch Party.
(n.) An organized, open-to-the-public swapping event where people of all shapes, sizes, and styles bring their gently used clothing, shoes and accessories, contribute them to a communal pot of on-trend items, then ‘shop’ the racks for ‘new’ stuff. a.k.a Fashion Bartering / Clothes Trading / Style Recycling
