Jezebel’s Third Annual Fashion Swap Meet is Thursday — September 11, 2012

Jezebel’s Third Annual Fashion Swap Meet is Thursday

via Reminder: Jezebel’s Third Annual Fashion Swap Meet is Thursday.

Jezebel’s Third Annual Fashion Swap Meet

When: Thursday, September 13, 6-8pm. The drinks are FREE from 6-7pm.
Where: Randolph Beer, 343 Broome Street (between Bowery and Elizabeth)

How it works: Open your closet. Look in your closet. Reach into your closet and remove the crap that’s been gathering dust, and bring it to the bar on Thursday. Swap it for something new-to-you. Boom.

Just trade in one wearable item — clothes, shoes, accessories — and you’ve gained entry, free to rummage with reckless abandon and take whatever you can carry. The more stuff you bring, the more rummaging for everyone (and we mean everyone: all shapes and sizes, and you too, guys — all it takes is for two for a gentlemen’s trade).
