Swap Maine is Saturday, June 29 from 10 am-1 pm at East End Community School, Portland.
I can show up at 9, but I can’t swap until 10, right?
That’s right. You can show up at 9 and we’ll start hanging clothes to get the event ready, but doors don’t open until 10 for the swap madness. But there will be coffee and donuts so feel free to just hang out.
Can I show up anytime to swap?
Absolutely! Swapping goes until 1pm and we definitely add clothes throughout the day, as they are dropped off. Anytime you show up with a bag on Saturday, you only pay $5.
If I drop off early, do I get an early start at swapping too?
Alas, no. To be fair, we open the doors to everyone at the same time. And no pushing!
It’s almost summer, but can I bring sweaters?
Yes. But do keep in mind the types of things you’ll want to be shopping for at the swap. It’s 90 degrees out so sundresses and shorts are definitely more preferably than a stack of wool sweaters and pants!
What if I show up with a bag and pay but don’t see anything I like?
First of all – highly unlikely! But if that does happen, please know that your $5 donation and your clothing donation go directly to Goodwill and to a great cause. And trust us – you’ll find something.
Can I try on clothes there?
Sure can! We will have some mirrors but no dressing rooms. We recommend wearing leggings and a tank so you can easily try on dresses or skirts over your clothes.
I am not willing to part with any clothes but I’d love to come. Can I still swap?
Yes! Pay a $10 fee and you’re admitted to the swap!
If I show up after noon, will there still be clothes?
Yes, but of course there will be less options than at the start. But it will also be less busy so it’s easier to take your time perusing. Potato, potahto.
