Find Thousands of FREE new and gently used items
peace. love. swap
The peace. love. swap. mission:
to keep gently used baby, kid, & maternity items out of our landfills, and to donate to local charities by hosting fun, affordable, family friendly swaps for moms and dads.
This isn't a just a baby/kid/maternity
clothing and gear swap (which is what we
normally do)~ and it's not a "swap meet"
where things are for sale. You can bring
just about anything you want.... and
take what you need... FOR FREE
It's the ULTIMATE Free-Recycling event!
Admission fee is required (unless you volunteer) - once you are in, you can fill your bag with all the "new to you" items that you want.
What can be brought to the swap? ANY new or gently used item that you are wanting to get rid of! Well... almost any - you can only bring items that a person can carry in their arms - so NO large appliances like washers, dryers, refrigerators, or large furniture like bed, couches, etc. One person MUST be able to carry the item. Everything you bring must be in working order - no dirty, stained, and badly worn or broken items!!
Acceptable swap items:
Baby/Kid/Teen/Maternity clothing and gear
Women's and Men's clothing, gear, and accessories
Small Kitchen Items
Home and Garden
Books/Movies/CD's/Video Games/Audio books
Small Electronic Devices
HOW DOES THIS WORK??
1. Buy your ticket online or at the door.
Early Bird's get first pick of the goods and will be allowed to enter the swap floor first! $12 and stuff to swap
General Admission (pre-registration) - $10 and stuff to swap
General Admission (at-the-door) - $12 and stuff to swap
There is no limit on how much you can bring, but there is a limit on how much you can take out (at a time) You can take out ONE bag of items and as much as you can carry (no carts, dollies, or stollers will be allowed). Once you unload your items, you can enter the swap one more time for a second round. You will need to show your ticket or wristband - so DON'T LOSE IT!
How big can your ONE bag be? A regular sized shopping bag - NO large duffle bags or 3X the size of Ikea bags!
2. Show up at the swap (with your stuff to swap)
between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. on Friday April 22nd, 2011.
If you are an early bird or pre-registered general admission you will receive your wristband and raffle ticket and your name will be checked off the roster. If you buy your ticket at the door you will receive a raffle ticket. We'll take your items to be sorted.
3. Go explore Denios!
Check out Denio's hundred's of bargain vendors, farmer's market, or grab lunch and snacks at one of their many enticing food vendors. Make sure you grab some coupons!
4. Start your swapping engines at 12:30 p.m. Raffle winners get cool prizes donated from local businesses.
Entrance to the swap starts at 12:30 p.m. AFTER THE RAFFLE DRAWING!
You can fill your ONE bag to the brim and take as much as you can carry. No carts, strollers, dollies will be allowed. Once your ONE bag is full and you have as much as you can carry, you will need to exit. You can enter again for a second round after you have unloaded your items (back at your car please!), but you need to show your ticket or wristband.
No pushing, no running, no hoarding (rude and greedy behavior). Swapping is all about sharing, recycling, and donating to charity -
so play nice and remember there is plenty to go around!
Unadopted items and a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to Charity
