Pre-Swap Drop-off Details
Saturday, June 9, 10 am to 2pm
Portland Flea for all
Bring a bag (or 2 or 3!) of clothes, shoes and accessories and you will get a ticket to attend the swap on Sunday, June 10 for FREE!
As you may recall from our last two swaps, we set up pre-swap drop off days so you can come to the swap hands free and ready to swap. In exchange for dropping off early, we give you a ticket for free admission – pretty good deal!
Why does SWAPmaine offer this? The pre-swap drop off is very important to making sure the swap goes smoothly. When we have enough people that drop off early, it gives the SWAPmaine crew and all our amazing volunteers the time to sort through the clothing, hang it up on clothing racks and place everything in the right categories. This pre-sorting allows us to have a beautifully curated assortment of clothes, shoes and accessories ready for swapping the minute the doors open.
While of course you can bring your clothes the day of the swap (and we encourage this, so we can continually replenish the inventory), there are benefits for the organizers and YOU when you drop off early. And remember! All leftover clothing is donated to Goodwill, so as always, we encourage swappers to give more than they swap.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested in volunteering during the pre-swap or the day of the swap? Let us know and get in for free!
