Spring Clean Clothing Swap Saturday March 22nd

Join us to swap till you drop on March 22rd 1 – 4 at 489 College Street. Get rid of clothes, accessories, shoes and scarves and leave with (almost) new ones. The swap is a fundraiser for Outburst! Young Muslim women Project to attend the Allied Media Conference in Detroit this June.
Access Info: The event is taking place at 489 College Street, Suite 508. There is ramp inside the front door to get to the elevator. The space is wheelchair accesible.

How it works:

1. Go through your closet and find items that you no longer wear or use, but that are in good enough condition that someone else might be thrilled to find. Remember one person’s trash is another person’s fashion find.

2. Bag the clothes (laundered and folded!)

3. Drop off the bags at the Barbra Schlifer Clinic at 489 College St. Suite 503 by March 21st between 9 -5 weekdays. Ask for Shameela. You will receive a ticket for each bag.

4. When you get to the event on March 22rd bring your ticket and fill up your bag with next to new clothes!

P.S. If you do not donate clothes you can still come and swap.

P.S.S. If there is a contested item that more than one person would like we will have a rock paper scissors competition.

Tickets: $5.00 if you donated clothes and $10.00 if you did not.

What we accept: Dresses, pants, sweaters, button down shirts, hijabs, abayas, jackets, coats, salwars kameez, saris etc.

What we won’t accept: damaged, stained or dirty clothing.

***Laundering policy – As a courtesy to fellow swappers, please wash clothing items fragrance free detergent- otherwise, if folks all use a ton of bounce and febreeze, it can be hard for a lot of folks with asthma, immune disorders, chemo etc to be there**

All funds raised will be donated to the Outburst! Young Muslim Women Program field trip to the Allied Media Conference ( to build our skills on creating positive social change through the arts.
