Last year, in a fit of relative spontaneity, some friends and I decide to throw the mother of all clothing swaps. The All-Tahoe Clothing Swap, held at the American Legion Hall in South Lake Tahoe, was more successful than any of us had imagined. So much so that we had to do it again.
Mark your calendar for May 13th. That’s when the 2nd Annual All-Tahoe Clothing Swap returns to the American Legion. Like last year the event is open to everyone, and the price of admission is low – a canned good or other nonperishable item for local charity Christmas Cheer.
If you’ve never been to the All-Tahoe Clothing Swap, here are three reasons why you should make it a priority this year.
- It’s free – I’m going out a limb and calling the price of a few canned goods a great trade for some new clothing. Last year’s event also featured shoes and accessories, a nice bit of added value.
- It’s fun – While shopping at the American Legion may seem an unusual location for a shopping spree, consider this fact: it has a bar. Plus you don’t have to worry about what that armload of clothes is going to run you in the end (see #1).
- It’s for a good cause – In addition to supporting Christmas Cheer, the All-Tahoe Clothing Swap also provides those remaining clothes to local charities.
