i was kind of a nervous mess on the first day. ha! it was like going to church camp where you don’t know what to expect, and a part of you would rather be at home than in a room full of people you don’t know. but when i walked in to the clothing swap, all my worries faded away. there were so many girls there who i “knew” from their blogs, and they were all so nice and easy to talk to!
after tagging my items, i volunteered to help sort everything into piles—which meant i got to hang out with the awesome organizers and other volunteers, and get a good look at what other people had brought to swap. this was my first-ever swap and i hope to do it again! i know there is one in des moines next month, and i might even get crazy and organize my own!
all the swappers! at this point i had already grabbed most of my items.
the once-loved items i brought:
five jeans, three dresses (one not pictured), two tops, a scarf, a necklace and black heels.
my new items to love:
i scored some fun, colorful items! two pants, two scarves, flats, earrings and a belt.
suze of miss vinyl ahoy and me having fun before the swap.
don’t let her fool you—erin is a really good singer.
at chinatown i got to sit next to and chat with one of my favorites, jen of jen loves kev.
