Not your typical hand me downs.
A new trend in shopping, or swapping per say. Forget the days of buying storage containers and kitchen gadgets! It’s time to go through your girlfriend’s closets, all in one place, and score some “new” fashion garb for your wardrobe. Swap Parties are a great way to not only get rid of items in your closet, but to also fill that empty space with something someone else no longer uses. A great time for all ages, both young and old. Don’t forget the added bonus of girl time, sweets, and drinks!
Swap Party Tips & Etiquette
*Invite! Invite! Invite! Send out those fancy invitations at least 3-4 weeks in advance. Invite your girlfriends, and maybe some of their friends. Make sure your group consists of similar sizes, body types, and style personalities.
*Tell your girlfriends to clean out their closets and bring items that have not been used or worn for at least 6 months. Items can include apparel, shoes, bags, and accessories. Items MUST be in excellent condition, clean, no holes, hardware working properly, etc. Designate a limited amount guests can bring.
*Where oh where are we going to shop? Choose a location with ample space, whether in home or a rented space. Space should allot for shoppable, we’ll merchandised areas, “dressing room”, mirrors, etc.
Spice it up with different themes to only offer items within hat theme, casual, dressy, party, designer, etc.
And what gathering is not complete without snacks, sweets, and drinks!
This is a great opportunity to not empty those purses, to gain new and exciting wardrobe pieces, and to socialize with your BFFs or make new connections!
