Free Halloween Costume Swap in Long Beach – October 17.
Unload Last Year's Halloween Costumes and Decorations, along with anything else you have to let go of, at the Seven-Ten Swap: Halloween Costume Swap in Downtown Long Beach on Friday, October 17, 2014.
The Seven-Ten Swap is a free community exchange and pot-luck in downtown Long Beach hosted by the Long Beach Free Store. This free monthly event, in its 4th year, allows people to bring items they no longer use and swap them for others. The event works like a community rummage sale – but with no money. People can just come and give items away, while they find something to take home – for free. The October swap's focus is on Halloween Costumes, items and decorations – as well as anything that can be used to create from scratch or upcycle into Halloween wares. Other non-Halloween items are welcome as well. All items need to be clean and in good condition.
