Old Meets New
Shopping for vintage and retro clothes can be fun and rewarding, but it can also be frustrating. Like when you find something you absolutely love and purchase it on a whim only to discover that it doesnt actually fit. Well, Cynthia Joye has a solution to that problem: a Vintage/Retro Clothing Swap.
I did something similar when I lived in Pittsburgh, she says. Some girlfriends and I would get together twice, sometimes three times a year, and we were all kind of the same size, and wed bring our clothes, and when we were done, wed have a new wardrobe.
Sound good? E-mail Joye at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your name on the list and directions to her place in Capitol Hill. Some people really have a lot of stuff, Joye notes, so Im limiting it to a garbage bag full of stuff. Make sure your items are cleaned and priced, in case someone wants to buy something instead of swap; the suggested price range is between $5 and $20. Theres a $5 fee to participate in the swap, and Joye will provide a changing area so you can try on your new finds. Space is limited, so sign up now.
