Clothing Swap Success

Erin and I had the Dallas Clothing Swap on Saturday and I am happy to report that it was a great success. 13 lovely women in all shapes and sizes showed up with massive amounts of clothing and accessories to be swapped. We had 3 big tables piled high with clothes, 1 with acessories, 1 with jewelry, and shoes piled on the floor:

And of course, we had some snacks to keep everyone fueled while they rummaged through the massive piles. We had cake balls (thanks, Erin!), chicken biscuits, hummas and veggies, plus white wine spritzers. I will say that most people seemed too occupied by the clothing to stop for food. We did a couple of rounds of selections, then we just let everyone grab whatever they wanted that was left.

Even after that, we still had 7 bags of clothing to donate to charity.

All in all, I would consider this a great success. Any of the other attendees care to put in their two cents? Thanks to all of you who came and made this such a fun event:

I agree it was a great success. It was great meeting you all! I really appreciate you guys putting this together. I thought it was well organized and there was plenty to choose from and then some.

i also went to a swap in my area this weekend.
i was SO HAPPY to clear out my closet of a TON of not-so-flattering items, and it was cool to get a few new-to-me things as well!

it looks like you + i might be around the same size, so if you ever have anything youre looking to get rid of (skirts in particular!) you can always send them my way. ;)
