Have a bunch of clothes you don’t wear anymore that are still in great condition? Swap them for something different!

The swap will be held in the area outside the Whites Creek Dairy. Drop-off is from 11:00-11:50am on the day; the swap starts at 12:00pm (noon). You can bring up to six items per person -- we will not take more.

All items MUST be clean and in good condition. Items that are torn, stained or dirty will not be accepted. This swap is for women's and men's adult clothing.
