PSP Members-Only Working Moms Clothing Swap @ Park Slope Library

Join us at the Park Slope Library for the
PSP Working Moms Clothing Swap

😀Want to register but don't see the button?  Make sure you're logged in! 😀


Bring what you can share.
Take what you can use.
We’ll donate the rest!


Come meet other Working Moms, bond, and get some "New to You" Clothes!
  

DETAILS:

  • Please bring your most swappable work items. (If you wouldn’t give it to your finicky in-law, don’t bring it to the swap.)
  • Bring work-friendly maternity clothes as we have a number of folks who are pregnant or between sizes. 
  • We do not have a private changing area, so dress appropriately. Thin leggings and a tank top make it easy to try stuff on. Loose skirts make it easy to try on slacks.
  • This is an adult-only event. It makes for a much nicer experience and you deserve some "me" time.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

How does it work? 
-Bring clothing and accessories that you'd like to swap and put them on the tables *
*We would love to have folks and clothing in all sizes! We'll have tables for all sizes from XS to XXL.

-We start with a meet-and-greet and then get to swapping! We find that introducing ourselves, our jobs, and our fashion needs, helps folks pick out appropriate styles for each other! 
-Once intros are done you can find other people's treasures and try them on. We ask that people try things on to make sure they fit so you take what really works for you.  It's a bummer if people take great things that other people miss out on just to find it doesn't work for them later. 
-Try to take no more than what you brought, take what you need, and share the wealth.
-It’s always fun for everyone to find a “diamond in the rough” so if you find more than one of something great, leave it for the next person.

 

Reminder: Please wash all clothing and heat dry before wearing if you can. Also PRESORT clothes by size (XS, S, M, L, XL+) to make it easy for us to put things out. we have a separate section for maternity.  Double-check for stains, rips and holes.

Who is invited?
This event is open to anyone who identifies as a mom, whether you have a job, are looking for a job, or considering a return to the workforce.

Can we bring kids?

Please no. Having a clothing swap with kids just hasn’t worked in the past. It's hard to try on clothes if you're chasing toddlers or experiencing letdown with your baby hungry and crying. We also feel that there needs to be time away from our kids in order to recharge. If you have a friend or partner who can take charge of your child(ren), put yourself first for this short time. We recognize the plight of single moms and want to be helpful. Let us know if you need to be connected to another mom; maybe you can swap with another mom to take 2 shifts to help with childcare. 

 

What happens to the leftovers? Anything left will be donated to a women’s career not-for-profit, Big Reuse, or Housing Works.  If you have a great not-for-profit that needs the clothes and can pick up the clothes the day of the swap, please reach out.
