Swap till you drop! Women’s-clothing swap to benefit Early Days

Ready for a wardrobe refresh? This might be the ticket: A benefit women’s-clothing swap coming up three weeks from today in West Seattle, presented by and benefiting Early Days, a support organization for moms of babies. Read on for the official announcement:

Early Days will hold its first community fundraiser 5:30-7:30 pm on February 24 at C & P Coffee Company (5612 California SW) in West Seattle.

The event will be a women’s clothing swap where participants can exchange gently used clothing they no longer have a use for. Clothing should be in good shape and not in need of mending. Participants should bring the clothing they plan to swap with them to the event.

Early Days is a non-profit organization that offers drop-in support groups for moms with babies up to 1-year. The support groups are held each week in a safe, welcoming, nonjudgmental environment where women can talk about the emotional changes and challenges of motherhood.

“This is a great chance to clean out your closets and get rid of clothes you no longer wear,” said Meg Gluckman, Early Days founder. “You’ll be able to take home some fun new duds while at the same time supporting West Seattle moms and babies!”

West Seattle’s Cherry Consignment is generously donating some stylish pieces to the swap. Clothes are not for sale. There is a suggested donation of $20. Donations will support local Early Days groups. Babies in arms are welcome.

All attendees will be entered into a door prize drawing of gift certificates to local businesses, including Mama Needs a Refill and Maven Meals. Wine, beer and nonalcoholic beverages will be available for purchase from C&P Coffee.

  1. Question.. what happens to the clothing that doesn’t find a home?

  2. I would also like to know what will be done with the extraneous clothes. I’ve currently got a couple of piles that I’d been planning to donate to Jubilee Women’s Center for their shopping area, but could bring them here if I knew that they would be donated to those in need after the event.

  3. Great question! Cherry Consignment has generously offered to take the leftover clothing to sell in their store (again to benefit Early Days). Anything not sold there will be donated (most likely to the West Seattle Senior Center.) Thanks!

  4. FYI- we’ll be doing the door prize drawing (we’re up to 7 great prizes from local businesses) at 6:30pm so make sure you get there by then!
