The Most Frequently Asked Questions…Answered!

Unsure of how this whole clothing swap thing goes? Here’s some answers!
Can I show up anytime to swap?
Absolutely! Swapping goes until 1pm and we definitely add clothes throughout the day, as they are dropped off. Anytime you show up with a bag on Saturday, you only pay $5.

If I drop off early, do I get an early start at swapping too?
Alas, no. To be fair, we open the doors to everyone at the same time. And no pushing!

It’s almost summer, but can I bring sweaters?
Yes. But do keep in mind the types of things you’ll want to be shopping for at the swap. It’s 90 degrees out so sundresses and shorts are definitely more preferably than a stack of wool sweaters and pants!

What if I show up with a bag and pay but don’t see anything I like?
First of all – highly unlikely! But if that does happen, please know that your $5 donation and your clothing donation go directly to Goodwill and to a great cause. And trust us – you’ll find something.

Can I try on clothes there?
Sure can! We will have some mirrors but no dressing rooms. We recommend wearing leggings and a tank so you can easily try on dresses or skirts over your clothes. 

I am not willing to part with any clothes but I’d love to come. Can I still swap?
Yes! Pay a $10 fee and you’re admitted to the swap!

If I show up after noon, will there still be clothes?
Yes, but of course there will be less options than at the start. But it will also be less busy so it’s easier to take your time perusing. Potato, potahto.

How To Get Into The Swap…FOR FREE

As if a bag of free clothes isn’t awesome enough, I’m about to share some secrets with you all. Why? Because I care.

Here are two surefire ways to get into SwapMaine for free. That’s right. Free.

1) Show up on Friday, October 28th (the night before the swap) between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. to drop off your clothes. That’s it. It’s a one-hour window but you’ll get free admission the next morning. One hour only!

2) Show up on Saturday morning between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. with some baked goods. A pumpkin loaf perhaps? Or some mouth-watering brownies? Maybe a triple-layer devil’s food cake with the word SWAP stenciled on it with powdered sugar? Whatever your Betty Crocker skills can provide and your bag of clothes will get you in free that morning too.
Just a reminder that those that show up with clothes the morning of the swap will be charged $5. Those that want to come and swap without a bag of clothes to bring will be charged just $10. And of course, all this money goes to Goodwill.

Baked goods, free clothes and charity? Pinch yourselves people.
