Swap til you drop this weekend

The next Swap Don't Shop event will be coming up next month (yay!), but if you're looking to warm up for the main event, below are a few upcoming swaps to get you started. If you've ever wanted to pack as much clothing swapping as possible into a short period, this would be the weekend to do it!

Toronto Alliance for the Performing Arts' clothing swap, which should be a good bet for those looking for halloween costumes. Clothing is $2 a piece if you have nothing to swap.
Sistering - 962 Bloor St. West

A UofT student organized swap is happening at Beit Zatoun, a cultural centre in the Annex. Swap-ables other than clothing are welcome at this swap, including books, music and art.
1pm - 3pm (doors open at noon)
Beit Zatoun - 612 Markham St.
$7 +5 swap items

Evergreen Brickworks is hosting a Community Clothing and Costume Swap. In addition to swapping, there will be live music and a halloween costume auction. Check out their website for drop-off dates and times.
BMO Atrium
1pm - 4pm

If you have kids, they can get in on the action too, with the Walnut Studios Kids Clothing Swap. Money raised will go to their after school art program.
83 Walnut Ave.
1pm - 4pm
