Score Some New-To-You Swag at this Saturday’s Stop n Swap in Westchester Square

I LOVE thrifting and swapping. I’d say about 50% of my current wardrobe is thrifted. It’s such a great opportunity to add some unique pieces to your closet. This weekend, GrowNYC is hosting its famed Stop N Swap in Westchester Square. Do some spring cleaning, bring your  cast aways (so long as they’re in good condition, of course!)  to the Owen Dolen Center to swap them out and treat yourself to something new to you. From experience, trust me, you want to show up as early as possible to get some good stuff!

How It Works: Stop ‘N’ Swaps invite the public to bring clean, portable, reusable items to share with those who can use them. No one is required to bring something to take something—you can simply show up with a bag and see what’s free for the taking. Books, toys, fashionable clothing, housewares and electronics are just some of the offerings.  Anything leftover at the end of the day is donated or recycled. Furniture and other large items are not accepted at the swap.

“Stop ‘N’ Swaps are a resource for all New Yorkers. Residents come out in large numbers to give away what they don’t need and find some really useful items for themselves, all without paying. And we are keeping perfectly good items out of the landfill, which is where so many things unfortunately end up,” said GrowNYC Executive Director Marcel Van Ooyen. “The added benefit is neighbor meeting neighbor, and a community being strengthened.”
