Ladies, join us on Friday, May 17 for another Women’s Clothing Swap at Marine Mills Folk School! At this women-only community event, you’ll be able to swap your clean, usable clothing and accessories with others, and learn more about Marine Mills Folk School and our classes and events.

Usable clothing that is left at the end of the event may be donated to Valley Outreach’s StyleXchange clothing shop. If your accessories and clothing are not usable (i.e., soiled/ripped/unwearable) and/or cannot be donated to Valley Outreach, you must take your items with you at the end of the swap.

How to prepare:

  • Go through your clothing and accessories (jewelry, shoes, hats, scarves, etc.) and select items that no longer work for you. Easy guidelines: does it fit? Is it my style? Have I worn it in the last year? Those are great clues for items that might better serve someone else!

  • Check the items for damage. If they’re undamaged, wash and clean them.

What to bring:

  • Your pre-cleaned and undamaged items (see above).

  • Hangers for dresses, blazers, etc. We will provide clothing racks.

  • Shopping bags to bring home your new items.

Tips for Swapping Success!

  • Wear a form-fitting tank-top and leggings or bike shorts. This will make it easy to try on items. There also will be private dressing areas.

  • Wear slip-on shoes.

  • Be prepared to socialize and have fun!
