Queen Size Swap

queen size swap 2015-March

Next month at The Hangar in Troy: The Queen Size Swap, a swap for plus-size clothing (sizes 12/14 and up). Blurbage:

Swapping is not person to person. There is no buying or selling of clothing. The clothing is grouped by size: 12/14/16/18 table. 20/22/24 table. Etc. You drop off your clothes at the appropriate table then you can check out the other clothes. First come, first serve. Any new to you items you are interested in you take home. Nice and easy. Anything no one takes home will be donated. ...
What should I bring to swap?
CLOTHES - Dresses, tops, pants, jeans, skirts, jackets, shrugs, cardigans, coats, jumpers, shorts
SHOES - Heels, boots, sandals, flats, any shoes in good condition or 'new'
BAGS - Handbags, clutches, purses, wallets, satchels
ACCESSORIES - belts, scarves, hats, costume jewelry, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings, sunglasses, hair accessories
Stained, ripped, dirty clothing. Bras, panties or swimsuits.

The Queen Size Swap is Sunday, September 20 from 11 am-2 pm. There's free pre-registration so you can claim a swap spot -- it's then $10 at the door when you arrive. There will be door prizes from places such as Nibble Inc. and Market Block Books.

I am so looking forward to this. I believe this is going to be the most fun I have had in a long time. The concept is of larger women to be catered to and cater to on and other is a beautiful thing. I just love it. Being someone who lived on the other side of the tracts (per say) for a majority of my life I have now seen some ugly things come from human beings that shock me. I thank God every day that I an strong and confident in who I am and was always taught to stand tall, shoulders back, head up and full steam ahead. Sometime others just tend to think I am stuck up or something, but get to know me and you will find out I am just Kim. Down to earth loving Kim.

The Spring 2016 Queen Size Swap will be April 3rd from 11am til 2pm at The Hangar!
