Event Description

=== A Clothing Swap With a Twist ===

It’s time to get excited Boston! The first ever “Take Off Your Clothes” event is hitting our city for TWO DAYS in June.

This event is not to be missed! Take the opportunity to clean out your closets, and enjoy an evening of music, entertainment and eco-friendly fashion at 500 Harrison Ave in Boston’s SoWa District. Thanks to SoWa Sundays for donating the use of the space! [http://www.sowasundays.com/].

♫ MORE to be announced!

Admission - $8.00
SAVE TIME AT THE DOOR - buy your ticket in advance on Eventbrite!
[http://takeoffyourclothesboston.eventbrite.com]

=== Here’s the Concept ===

1 swappable item will get you 1 ticket to use in “the swappers boutique” (as long as it qualifies – meaning clean, undamaged clothing/accessories)*. Items deemed unswappable, along with all clothing remaining at the end of the event, will be donated to Boomerangs [www.shopboomerangs.org], benefitting The AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts. [http://www.aac.org]

=== Take advantage of Priority Check-in! ===

We’ll pick up your clothes in advance of the event, or you can drop your clothes off at our drop-off location.

To arrange for a pick-up or drop off, send an email to:
clothingpickups-BOS@theswapteam.org

To make things easier for us, we ask that you label your bags with your name, contact info and # of items inside.

* You will receive your exchange tickets with paid admission at the door of our June 5/6 event. Admission is good for BOTH days. Why not come Saturday and return on Sunday to see what’s new?

General questions can be directed to: sarah@theswapteam.org

We do NOT issue exchange tickets for: bathrobes, pajamas, underwear, lingerie, swimwear, tank tops, socks, or stockings. Likewise, we do not issue exchange tickets for ripped, faded, torn, stained, scratched, dirty, frayed, missing buttons, broken zippers or otherwise worn/damaged items. Items received that fail to meet these standards will be donated directly to Boomerangs.
