Clothing Swap

Once upon a time, I cleaned out my daughter's closet and was aghast at the accumulation of clothing that no longer fit. We added my son's outgrown clothing to the mix and together, the discarded duds made quite a pile. Our solution was stage a clothing swap.
A date and time were set, clothing was brought in and sorted.

Rooms were re-appointed as changing areas.
And then the "shopping" began. It was fun to see clothing picked up at last year's swap show up again and walk out the door with a new owner.

At the end of the day, everything left over was donated to charity. Win (get rid of outgrown clothes), Win (maybe find new clothes), Win (donate to charity).

What a great idea! Sounds like fun for everyone too. How many people did you have participating?
