Dallas Swap

Are you in the DFW area
and
interested in meeting up for a clothing swap?

Erin and I would love to host a free clothing swap if there is enough interest. It would be a basic swap. You bring gently used items and you trade with other girls. It's not set in stone yet, but we would probably use a "ticket and take turns" system for the first few rounds (You get a ticket for each item you donate to the swap, we take turns selecting items). After that, the leftover items will be sort of free for the taking (but be fair! No grabbing everything to sell to Buffalo Exchange!). Items left after that will be given to Goodwill.

If you are interested, please leave a comment and tell us your sizes. Don't be embarassed to post your sizes online. I'm about a 16W/XXL and I wear size 8 shoes, and Erin is a 4/6 so you can see that we already are starting out with a broad range of size options. If you don't want to post your sizes but are interested in participating, feel free to email me. This is important info b/c we want to be sure that we have more than one girl in each size range so that everyone has the possibility of finding a few good swaps. So 'fess up!

Sounds like a blast. If you are planning a weekend date, I'll drive up from Houston. Sz 12/14, shoe size 8. Plus, it gives me a good excuse to get together with some long lost gf in Plano and heading to the Cowgirl Museum - yeehaw!

I left a comment on Erin's site, but I'd also be interested in joining! (Long time reader, first time commenter!)

I'm a 10/12 ish and a 7.5 - 8 in shoes, but a lot of my clothes I'd be giving away would be smaller, I imagine.

Whether or not I could go would depend on my schedule, but even if I couldn't make it I would be fine with just donating my clothes to the cause. At least someone would be able to get some use out of them!

I saw this on Erin's site too, and I'd definitely be interested. It sounds like a lot of fun! I'm about a 16-20/XL-XXL in clothes right now and a 7-7.5 in shoes.

I'm interested too! I'm a 6-8 in clothes right now. And a 7.5/8 in shoes. Count me in.

I'd be interested. I'm 14/16, 6.5/7 in shoes. I'd be bringing a range of sizes as well. Thanks!

Commandress - great! Your profile doesn't have any info in it, so can you email me so we have your name and email address?

Thanks!!
