ABOUT ABOUT
PHILLY SWAP is a giant, community-wide clothing swap that brings hundreds of people together to shop, swap, reuse, and recycle. In addition to unlimited swapping, attendees can watch craft and construction demonstrations, learn about local artist and designers at the community partner tables, have one of their finds transformed by a local artist at our silk screening stations, or sit in on a talk about sustainable changes in the garment industry.

In its third year, Philly Swap has outgrown our space, moved to a bigger and most fabulous location and expanded its programming (see below). Plus, a portion of our proceeds goes to the Village of Arts & Humanities and all leftover clothing will be donated amongst our community partners.

Purchase your ticket, clean out your closets, and bring your gently worn, clean clothing and accessories to this year's swap. Please no underwear.

We anticipate an audience of 500+ attendees this year! Don’t miss the opportunity to connect locally, explore creatively, and reuse responsibly with Philly Swap 2010!
