I was contacted a while back by one of the organizers of a very cool local event. Swap-O-Rama. What is it? Well they describe it as such:
"Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a clothing swap and series of do-it-yourself workshops in which a community explores creative reuse through the recycling of used clothing."
Attendees bring a bag of unwanted clothing and $10. All of the donated items are then pooled together and attendees can pick and choose items they want to modify and restyle in a series of workshops.
It sounds like a lot of fun and I was happy to supply some items for their free goody bags.
