Clothing swap Friday in Boise

While a clothing swap isn't this blog's traditional fare, it's something we thought readers may enjoy.

Meridian business Babe on a Budget is hosting a clothing swap Friday night, from 6 to 9 p.m., at Fasten-It, 134 N. Cloverdale Road in Boise. This is not a free event; it costs $15 if you haven't already bought a ticket. If you're not familiar with clothing swaps, they're events where a group of people gather to trade clothes.

Swappers are advised to call 794-4718 to set up a time to drop off clothes for the swap, or to ask questions about it. Clothes, shoes and accessories should be current, fashionable, clean and in good shape.

Organizers said there will be vendors at the swap offering cupcakes, appetizers, Scentsy and Velata products and other items.

A portion of proceeds will go to Swap Kids Apparel, a local children's clothing swap event held bi-monthly in Nampa.
