WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Drop off your items to the designated Swap Room. Your items will be tagged with you social media information.
  • While your items are being sorted, network with other attendees or shop B & R Thrift Store.
  • After the networking Happy Hour, the fashion swap will begin.

    THE FASHION SWAP

    • During the first round of the swap, groups of 5 or less enter the "Swap Boutique" to select their three favorite pieces. But they only have five minutes to do so. It is a very intense and careful consideration is given to each piece that is selected. 






    • During the last round of the swap, everyone shops at once. You can take as many items that you can stuff your shopping bag! It gets a little competitive, but it a very fun experience.







    • Happy swappers with their bag filled with new-to-you fashion!
