Time to start cleaning out your closets again, ladies! We are holding our 3rd Annual Women’s Clothing Exchange, benefiting Mary's Place, at the Ballard Elks on October 15th!
Last year we donated over $4000 to Mary’s Place and a truckload of clothing for their clients. And all the women who came to shop, went home with lots of great new clothing for their wardrobes.
Drop-off period is September 2nd — October 12th, (weekdays 3pm-9pm, Saturdays 1pm-10pm, Sundays 9am-9pm) at the Ballard Elks Lodge (Upstairs) If you have a lot to bring, there is an elevator you can use to bring it up.
We will accept women's clothing, shoes and accessories (jewelry, belts, scarves, purses, hats, gloves) in good condition. Only bring items that you would be proud to pass on. If you wouldn’t lend it to a friend, don’t bring it.
Sorry — No lingerie, swimwear, socks, men’s or children’s clothing. No stained or torn items, please.
Be sure to sign the drop-off roster so you can get your discounted General Admission.
Note: No dropoffs will be accepted after Oct. 12th. Please do not bring your items to be swapped on the day of the event. We will not be able to accept them and you will not get the discounted admission.
Admission to event on October 15th:
$15 with clothing drop off, (last day to drop off 10/12)
$30 without clothing drop off,
$40 VIP Admission — Includes for 30 minute early admission @ 12:30pm + 1 free drink ticket! (with or without clothing drop off — it's for charity, folks.) VIP pre-sale tix available here: elksfrockswap.bpt.me/
After you pay the event admission, you «shop» for free! (Clothing is not priced/no additional charge) There is no limit to what you can take home, but we ask that your are respectful to other shoppers, try things on, and only take what you can wear.
Clothing left over at the end of the event will be going to Mary's Place, as appropriate.
