Sunday, 4/29, noon to 4pm

I think some people commented after the Swap story in September that they wished they had known about it.

A little bit short notice on this, but I do want to let you know that The Scrap Exchange is hosting a Swap-O-Rama-Rama on Sunday, April 29 as part of Durham Art Walk weekend.

The Swap is from noon to four at The Scrap Exchange, 923 Franklin Street, Durham NC 27701. You can bring a bag of clothing that you’d like to get rid of, or if you don’t have anything you want to part with and just want to get more, that’s fine too. We have yet to have a shortage of clothing at one of these things.

Here’s the Swap story I wrote during the fundraiser in the fall, and here’s a post I wrote on the Scrap blog describing the Swap we had in Raleigh, if you’d like more info on the Scrap Swap-O-Rama phenomenon. (Or for more info on the national model Swap-O-Rama-Rama, you can visit the Swap-O-Rama-Rama site: www.swaporamarama.org.)

Suggested donation of $10 for the general public and $5 for Friends Club members. (And really, that’s the best bargain on the planet. Pretty much my entire wardrobe has come from the last few years of Swaps.)

If you do come, please note to be careful where you park. Scientific Properties started towing cars on Friday. If you park in the gravel lot at the end of Belt Street, with the metal PARK sculpture, you’ll be fine, that parking lot belongs to the owner of the building we’re in.

If you park in the central, paved lot, which is shared between the two building owners, be sure to park in a spot marked “Reserved for CC&W.” Do NOT park in a blank space or a space with a red R. Those belong to Scientific Properties and they will tow you away and you will have to pay $240 to get your car back. Boo.
