NYC Summer Swap Meet - THIS WEEKEND



Hello All, the epic swap meet is this Saturday, July 16 in New York City!
Please Double-Check your availability and attendance!!! There were a lot of maybe's last post.

In the spirit of thriftiness, clearing out wardrobes, expanding your collection, or looking for ways to avoid paying extra costs associated with online shopping, I feel this would be a great event to have next month. If you haven't attended a swap before, the basics are that you can bring clothing you no longer want, and either sell or trade it for clothing you do! Even if you don't want to part with anything from your wardrobe, you can still come to browse others' wares or just hang out! Don't be afraid to bring shoes, accessories, or loli-able items!

The Swap will be at Bryant Park, and if you so wish, feel free to meet at Kinokuniya at 12 noon. (I will be stuffing my face with onigiri.) Both are on 6th Ave (Avenue of the Americas). Bryant Park's website has a "no peddling" stance, and while this doesn't apply to us (because we are not hobos), try to keep your money-transactions under the table.

If some are so inclined afterward, you can head over to the ever fabulous Bosie Tea Parlor (Yelp). They have tea, cake, small sandwiches and most importantly macarons! Due to unforeseen circumstances, corrosivematter and I will not be attending or planning the tea party. It is up to you to go if you want. All information for Bosie is on their website, above.

Additional destinations to Tokyo Rebel are possible as well, but shopping isn't necessarily the focus of this meet. And if you end up with clothes from the swap, you might not want to lug it around the city all day.

Guests are allowed, but please be reasonable.

Things you might want to bring!
  • Money (obviously)
  • Anything you want to swap
  • A picnic blanket for your clothes (optional)
  • A bag to carry that shit in
