Clothing gets shopped and swapped this weekend

January 25, 2013 by  

The Seattle Clothing Exchange and Costumes was a big hit last year and has returned again this year, focusing on undamaged, wearable, clean, and fashionable items for women and men.

Costumes, if worn out or destroyed, are allowed but will not be counted towards the admission item total. Poster printing may have been used to share information about this event with residents of the community and surrounding communities.

The aim of this event is to provide seasonal clothing that will enable guests to build useful wardrobes and attire for each other. Usually, all guests leave this clothing exchange with bags and bags of new fashionable attire and accessories, as well as some fun costume items.

There will be a children’s take set aside, where parents can bring in and swap children’s clothing, although these items will not count as part of the item quota, so guests are still required to come with 30 items of their own clothing. The children’s table is a complimentary swap table. Mirrors cover an entire wall, so as clothing is tried on in the open, guests can see what it looks like, although there are privacy areas available as well. A part of the profits, plus remaining clothing will be donated to the SightConnection. There will be prizes, a photo booth, music, food, and beverages.

Admission to this event is $10 with 30 items, $15 with 16 – 29 items, or $20 with 15 or fewer items. The Seattle Clothing Exchange and Costumes will be occurring on Sunday, January 27, from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the OmCulture located at 2210 N. Pacific Street in Seattle, Washington, a short drive from Silverdale. To learn more, please visit OmCulture’s website or call 206-829-9969 during business hours.
