Toronto Swap Events This Week: May 20-27, 2013

Saturday May 26
9am - 11am
Venice Room, Doubletree International Plaza Hotel, 655 Dixon Road
Cost: $5

This week's big clothing swap is part of Anime North. With a focus solely on Japanese street fashion and Steampunk, it should be an interesting event. Items will be available for swap and sale. Attendees are encouraged to wear their PJs (because of the early start time) or their best street style outfit.

Foodies may also want to start thinking about what to make for next Monday's HomeEc event. The monthly potluck social takes place at Handlebar in Kensington Market, and this month's theme is bar snacks.
