We decided to mix things up a bit for our fourth SwapMaine event with a HOLIDAY SWAP SOIREE. Grab your best girlfriends and join us for a night of hors d’oeuvres, drinks and one giant well-curated closet.
Rather than clean out your closet and fill a bag, we’re asking you to bring FIVE PIECES of items that deserve a loving home. The wool peacoat you outgrew, that leather hobo bag you’ve been hanging onto for too long. We’re not looking for piles of t-shirts this time around, but really wonderful pieces you yourself would be happy to receive. In return, all swappers will only leave with five items.
WHEN? December 5th
Doors open at 6 p.m. for clothes to be dropped off and swapping begins promptly at 7p.m. Come early and peruse our curated holiday boutique that will feature vintage jewelry and accessories (great chance to pick up gifts for friends and family) and have a cocktail at our cash bar while enjoying free hors d’oeuvres.
WHERE? Mariner’s Church Banquet Hall in Portland (368 Fore Street, third floor)
WHY? All proceeds will go to benefit Goodwill Industries of New England.
Tickets are $20 each. Though we aren’t ever going to stop offering free clothing swaps in town, we wanted to do something special for everyone during the holiday season.
So in case you need more convincing, here’s what you’ll get with your $20 ticket:
- Five new items for your closet
-The opportunity to shop exclusive items donated from local boutiques
- Photos of you and your friends by the talented Corey Templeton
- A less chaotic swap – feel free to take your time shopping and trying items on!
- A donation to a wonderful local cause
If you’re convinced, buy your tickets here. Hurry, space is limited!
