Swap-O-Rama-Rama at MOV

Looking forward to checking out Swap-O-Rama-Rama at the Museum of Vancouver. I'm excited to pack up some used clothes and get my swap on!

Date: Saturday, June 26th, 2010
Time: 11:00 am to 4:00 pm
Location: Museum of Vancouver, 1100 Chestnut Street, Vancouver (map)
Admission: $6.00 at the door or $5.00 in advance via Paypal plus a bag of clean clothes and / or a bag of craft supplies to swap. (leave with all the clothes and supplies that you can carry!)

Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a clothing and craft supply swap in which a community explores reuse and creativity through the recycling of used clothing.

The core of the swap is the gigantic pile of free clothing and craft supplies sorted into categories such as pants, skirts, shirts, fabric, notions, etc. These piles are the collective total of each guest’s contribution of any size bag of unwanted clothes, so start cleaning your closets! Take as little or as much as you like! All remainders will go to local charities.

A series of DIY stations will be on-hand to unleash your creativity through the recycling of used clothing including screen printing by Blim and sewing stations by Plush On Main.

Join in the communal process of reuse and celebrate our collective creativity!

What to bring to Swap-O-Rama-Rama?
Clean, gently-used clothes and accessories: jackets, pants, shirts, skirts, shoes, gloves, belts, accessories, jewelry, sunglasses, bags, wallets and hats. Children and men’s clothing are welcome.

Craft supplies: Fabric, notions, trim, yarn, left over pieces from that project that you never made, etc.

What not to bring to Swap-O-Rama-Rama
Books, make up, home d├ęcor, furniture, lingerie / underwear, dirty clothing or anything that you cannot wear or craft with.

And while I'm there I'll finally get to check out the Fox, Fluevog & Friends exhibit exploring the creations of John Fluevog, Peter Fox and Ken Rice. Featuring 150 shoes dating from 1968 to 2000, this fashion retrospective explores the story behind their footwear companies, from their early days making the scene in 1970s Gastown to acclaim and powerful brand loyalty on an international scale.
