The beauty in a city-wide clothing swap is the local sustainability it creates. I love when I see something brought to SWAPmaine being worn by someone new. A few weeks later, I see it the window of one of our many thrift stores. It comes back around to the next SWAPmaine and a few months later, is being sold at Goodwill. At SWAPmaine, we let you clear out the things in your closet that are taking up very important space and let you ‘shop’ for new things to fill that space. We help people who may not be able to go out and afford a new wardrobe right now, but also make fashion fun for those who like to try new things and continuously change and mold their wardrobes. We can do all this without having to produce new clothing and help support our local economy.
With all this being said, there are those items that even though they were free, you just can’t seem to let go of. Here are a few of my favorite finds from SWAPmaine’s past:
A few things I have yet to wear (oh, but I will) and a few I have worn many many times. I can’t wait to see what I will find on Sunday. I know there will be things I only wear once and send on their way, but hopefully I will find at least one thing I want to hold on to.
What are some of your favorite SWAPmaine finds from the past??
