The Swap

Click the image above to watch a short video showing how the Swap works.

Five years ago, Life Bible Church hosted its first Swap. The ladies of the church brought in clothing items they no longer were wearing, ate some brunch and enjoyed free shopping. It was a great time! Since then, the Swap has grown to not just be an event for Life Ladies, but for the community as a whole. No matter what your financial situation, we all can benefit from sharing what we no longer use with others who can. The savings we receive in sharing can then be used for other things: taking our kids on an ice cream date, bringing a meal to a new mom or putting those savings towards an upcoming bill or paying off some debt. The Swap event has grown and now includes clothing and shoes, household items, book and baby equipment. This event is open to all – the more the merrier! We spring and fall Swaps for clothing & household items and a special Toy Swap in December to help with Christmas. Please invite your friends!

This event is FREE and we would love to have you come join us for some “no-cost shopping”. Enjoy brunch and get the family wardrobe ready for fall! 

Please use the form below to let us know you plan to come. Registration allows us to prepare proper space and have enough refreshments.

FAQ’s

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

Q: How does a “Swap” event work?

A: Before the event clothing, shoes, books and other items (toys at the Toy Swap) are sorted by type and placed on marked tables. Just before the doors open, brunch is served. 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! You are welcome to take what your family will enjoy.

Q: What kind of items can I bring?

A: During this swap, we plan to have gently used clothing and shoes of any size or type (men’s, women’s and children’s); children’s books; baby gear (highchairs, playpens, etc.), homeschool materials and housewares (Linen, Décor or Kitchen ware!)

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 donated to a local charity.

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: Where is the Swap held?

A: The Swap is held in our the main sanctuary of our church located at 124 P. Rickman Industrial Blvd, Holly Springs, GA.

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.

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.
