Craziness! We were running late for set up because I slipped and fell loading the car. However we made it just in time to set up in 20 minutes!
As soon as 11 o'clock hit, some of our regulars came to start the swap.
Then more came! The newbies brought that California vibe, contributing clothes and swapping for more.
Well. Got to get back to it...Open for another 45 minutes
Final customer! Having great conversation and wrapping things up! Thanks for coming out to the swap!
So I picked a great time to have the Nashville swap. This is my fall break (Metro Nashville teacher here!) and I thought it would be great to do this at a time when I didn't have to work.
That was until I decided to buy a house.
The close is after the swap, but it was so convenient to be off this week, cleaning for the move and finding tons of my daughter's items to contribute to the swap. As you may know, moving is awful and being able to get rid of stuff and in turn giving it to folks who need it, is great.
I am not a fan of giving to organizations who later resell donated items. Sometimes, though, they are the only places that you have around when you want to donate. Fortunately in Nashville and Oakland, we have other organizations that contribute to families directly and of course, now we have swaps.
So as I clean out my house and give my best, gently used items, to the swap, I hope you will as well. Call it fall cleaning. Maybe you're moving too and you need to reduce some stuff. Whatever the case may be, consider recycling and giving those items to people (in need or not) directly.
See you Saturday!~
Been working hard flyering in East Nashville for the next swap at East Park! Today, I'm walking in the rain to places in Green Hills, Midtown, 12 South, and Germantown to let people know about our community swap. Getting lots of good feedback and hope to see you all there.
