We are really thrilled to be at a same location right in the heart of the Ivanhoe Village Shopping District: 1300 Brookhaven Dr Orlando 32803. More room, means more people and therefore more clothes. We will have homemade cupcakes for sale from 6-7p while people get registered. Swap will be from 7-8:30p.

KIDS clothing! Moms get your kids clothes that they have out grown together and bring home some new stuff they can fit into!

** We NEED Volunteers!! If you are available the night of for all or part of the day / night, please let us know.**

The REASON: According to the U.S. EPA Office of Solid Waste, Americans throw away more than 68 pounds of clothing and textiles per person per year. We are trying to help reduce that number by having you keep your clothes in circulation and out of landfills.

This is how it ALL goes down: Start cleaning out those closets. GUYS & Girls.

First Part is a Clothing Swap! Bring all your clothing, shoes, jewelry, etc that have been your closet forever that you just don’t wear anymore, have grown out of, or was just never right for you to begin with and we will swap! Bring your old stuff. Bring home some new stuff. GENTLEMEN: PLEASE participate.

Second part of the Party is shopping Other Peoples Property. Get yourself loaded with the Best in Vintage. We will have an extensive collection of vintage clothing, shoes, jewelry, bags and much more. This is your chance to get some fantastic and one of a kind vintage pieces! We collect the best Vintage around for your shopping pleasure and have also added a lot of amazing vintage jewelry.

***Please note that a percentage of everything sold will be given to www.charitywater.org. Because over One Billion people don’t have clean fresh drinking water. We think that’s important and we hope you do too & Mission of Hope in Haiti. www.mohhaiti.org***

The left over clothes will be donated to Dress For Success. A non-profit that helps women get interview appropriate clothing and tips. Please check them out: www.dressforsuccess.org. The BETA Center for teenage moms www.betacenter.org and local Homeless Ministries.

The more the merrier so please invite all of your stylish friends!
