Hey FYG fam! We did it! We held our first Swap & Shop of the year on Sunday at the Goodwill HQ and it was an absolute smashing success. I honestly can’t believe it’s already over.

Folks from all over the DMV came out to swap their secondhand items for a new wardrobe that was also sustainable.

Come inside to check out all the pictures and more!

The start of the event was poppin’!

The event started off with a boom! After Clothing Drop-Off, attendees were invited to swap until they dropped.

Stacks on stacks of folded clothing was available for swapping of all sizes and cuts.

Some of the most well-stocked items included vintage jewelry and shoes.

Costume gems for days!

Throughout the event, new friends mixed and mingled offering one another style tips.

Racks were consistently restocked with jackets and dresses. This made more luxe and burly items more easy to peruse.

One very exciting thing about swaps is seeing the community unite for the good of the community and environment.

To offer even more sustainability and fashion-oriented resources, the DC Public Library and the DC Department of Energy and Environment showcased their offerings at the Swap.

The Library provided free library cards and books to check out!
Amber, one of our FYG bloggers, found some reading materials to take home.

Along with our sustainability DC partners, many of our FYG bloggers friends and family stopped by for some swapping and shopping too!

It’s always amazing to meet IG friends on real life. Catherine from CCCStyleDC (far left) met up with Amber and Carolyn to take a Goodwill-girl picture!

Folks from all over DC came out!
Amber brought this DIY sweater to swap with others. How could she have let this go?! So jealous of the swapper that snagged this.
Our friend Danielle of Thread Lift swapped too!
The fashion game at this swap was fire.

Although the swap is over, the excitement for another event is in the air. Here are a few finds from attendees post-event:

Thanks again to everyone who came out to this swap! Because it was so popular, we’ll be holding another one in the future, perhaps the summer. Stay tuned for our other spring events programming!
