Swap Meet

Doesn’t spring make you want to shop? We all have our favorite places to shop (as our schedules and finances permit), and for me, it’s places like Nordstroms, Barney’s and Zara, or online faves shopbop.com, net-a-porter.com and eBay--if only just to browse.

Well, we’ve just learned about an upcoming shopping event that is completely unlike your normal shopping experiences. It’s for a great cause, and it sounds like a lot of fun.

The Dallas Closet Swap happens May 5 from 6-9pm at the Women’s Museum at Fair Park, and the concept is simple:

1. Purchase a $25 ticket online at www.dallasclosetswap.com
2. Bring at least five new or nearly new items from your closet (“golden rule” applies here, ladies—only bring something someone else would want, according to the website)
3. Trade your treasures for someone else’s
4. Enjoy free food, cocktails and spa treatments from sponsors like Bliss Spa, The Lash Lounge, Barefoot Wines and Paciugo Gelato
5. Support Genesis Women’s Shelter, and go home happy

So clean out your closets, and have a great weekend!
