Communify Spring Clothing Exchange

Communify Spring Clothing Exchange

Saturday, March 9

190196_741312926261_219466881_nSpring is around the corner! Which means the looming task of spring-cleaning. In most cases, spring-cleaning of your closet can be the most difficult task. Parting with those cool pair of blue pants you wore a couple times but cant seem to get rid of can be tough. Rest easy because this Saturday (March 9) you will be able to clean out your closet, and pick out a few new cool outfits as well. From 8pm to 10pm at the Pierce Arrow Film and Arts Center, people just like you will bring in their versions of those blue pants they cant seem to get rid of. In these two hours, you bring as many clothes as you want, and exchange with other people just like you who would like to see their blue pants go to a good home. $5 gets you entry and a rack to proudly display your clothing to potential prospects as you peruse other peoples closets. A representative from Second Chic will also be there if you are looking to get a few extra bucks from some pieces you think could be worth money. Anything left over will be donated to Goodwill, so either way, you get a couple new-to-you tops, and Goodwill gets a whole new inventory of great lightly used clothing. Not only is this is great way to find some new outfits; this is also a great way to meet some new people and have a party! The Black Market Food Truck will be there serving you during your two hours of shopping. In addition to Black Market Food Truck, Pierce Arrow Bar & Grill is offering drink specials after the exchange. Really what more could you ask for? Shopping AND beer specials. If upcycling is your thing, fear not, there is a contest for the best use of upcycling from the exchange. Posting your picture to the Facbeook event page enters you into the contest, members at the event will vote for best upcycle and the winner gets a Tim Horton’s gift card. Clothing exchange is a great way to reuse something of someone else that would normally be thrown away. Many people benefit from this great event, you the shopper, the donator, and the Goodwill will receive anything that didn’t go home with happy shoppers. Bring your clothes, an empty stomach, and your party attitude! See on Saturday March 9 at the Pierce Arrow Film & Music Center at 8pm! —kendra sornberger
