Clothing Swap

Shopping

The Clothing Swap is an easy way to update your wardrobe for FREE! It is guilt-free shopping with no cost to your wallet. Donate items you no longer wear, and shop for something new to you. In addition to women's, men's, & children's clothing items, the Clothing Swap also includes shoes, jewelry, belts, educational books, and baby gear.

Our next clothing swap is Saturday, July 10th, 2021, from 10 am - 1 pm

FAQ's

Below are some questions and answers that may help you plan for this event.

Q: What is a Swap?

A: The Swap is not "item for item." Rather, it is a practical way that Life Bible Church shares with one another and the community at large. People register to drop-off their items. Then, they come back on the day of the Swap to shop. It is that simple! Life Bible Church members, along with volunteers from the community, work to organize the donated items, help people on the day of shopping, and keep things running smoothly. We hope you will donate, volunteer, or both!

Q: How does a Swap event work?

A: Before the event clothing and other items are sorted and placed on marked tables. During the Swap you are welcome to browse the tables and take whatever you can use for your family. There is no charge for anything! We do ask that you do not take items to sell, however.

Q: What kind of items can I bring?

A: Here is a list of things we will accept for this Swap:

  1. We welcome donations of men's, women's, and children's clothing. Scarves, ties, belts, jewelry, and shoes will also be accepted.
  2. We will also accept books, homeschool materials, educational games, & baby gear.
  3. Please make sure all items are clean, recently washed, and free from smoke and pet hair.
  4. Please carefully examine your items to make sure they are in like-new/gently-used condition.
  5. No holes, no stains, no tears, no profanity, no lingerie, and no used underwear will be accepted. Bras will be accepted.

Q: Am I allowed to sell things that I get from this swap?

A: NO. We provide this community event in hopes to save families money. Please do NOT take items your family will not use. All remaining items are used to fund future swap events, or are donated to a local charity. Again, please do not take items to sell on Poshmark, Mercari, Facebook Marketplace, or in any other way try to profit off the Swap.

Q: Can I come even though I do not attend your church?

A: YES! We encourage everyone in the community who would like to come and participate. Feel free to bring friends,  the more the merrier!

Q: Do I have to bring a minimum number of items?

A: No. We would love to have you come join us for the fun, even if you do not have any items to contribute. There is no counting of items during drop off or before you leave. (We only ask "Number of Items" on the registration so that we can prepare an appropriate number of tables.)

Q: Can I drop things off before the event?

A: YES! We would prefer items to arrive ahead of time to allow better organization. We provide early drop off times during the week prior to our event. Please sign up to let us know when you plan to come. Drop off times are as follows:

  • Tuesday, July 6th from 7-9 am
  • Wednesday, July 7th from 6-8 pm
  • Thursday, July 8th, from 6-8 pm

Q: I have other baby items. Can I bring those too?

A: YES. Any clean (non-expired) baby gear will be accepted.

Q: I may need to bring my children. Is that ok?

A: In our church, we believe that family comes first. So children are always welcome, however, we will not have childcare for this event.
