If you’re looking to recycle old clothes, shoes, jewelry, or handbags, the Granfalloon has an excellent opportunity for you.
This Thursday, in partnership with the Human Initiative, you and your vintage outfits are invited to the Sip and Swap With a Cause clothing swap.
Participants can bring anywhere between ten and twenty items to swap. Retro to modern items are accepted, so long as they’re not torn, stained, or otherwise damaged. Setup for the event begins at 6 p.m., and an hour later, the swapping begins. Participants must have a ticket and at least ten items to enter.
Tickets are ten dollars and can be purchased at the Granfalloon website, and a percentage of tickets will go to support The Human Initiative, a local non-profit homeless outreach program. The Human Initiative collects living essentials and tools of survival for the homeless while also offering them, as their Facebook describes it, “love in the form of a handshake, a hug, and conversation without expectation or judgment.” In addition to proceeds, any clothes left over from the swap will also be donated.
So that’s the “swap” aspect of this event; where does the “sip” come in? Well, in addition to donating your old clothes and finding new ones for the good of humanity, there will also be food, live music, and beer. That’s right—the Granfalloon is giving you a chance to drink, mingle, support a great charity, and find a new home for those old purple clogs in the back of your closet.
