FeedTacoma/Tacomamama Kids Clothing Swap

...and Back to School Celebration

Hello All,

In this thread about school supplies, DaveL suggested a FeedTacoma clothing exchange.

I think this is a great idea, let's run with it!

I am offering up the Tacomamama booth at the Broadway Farmers Market as a possible venue, next Thursday, September 4th at noon.  I'm thinking setting it at the lunch hour will make it possible for working parents to participate.

However, if that absolutely will not work for you and you want to attend speak now or forever hold your peace!  We can do something else but if we want to do it then I should really start planning/promoting now.

If you've never been to the Local Living Lounge at the market, it's a great place to buy lunch from one of the many local food vendors and eat at a comfy table or on the grass while the kids play at the Tacomamama booth.  

I'm thinking everyone can bring clothes their kids can't wear anymore, swaps will be negotiated, (I've participated in a few of these before and sometimes there are popular clothes) and anything left at the end of the day will be deposited in a donation bin.  

Let me know what you think.

Such a good idea, especially with little ones. Kids my age are so rough on their clothes that by the time they are done,so are the clothes. Good idea.

(Whew – I was afraid I was going to be volunteered to organize this!) Way to go, and good luck. I had no idea whether it was a good idea or not, nor how it would work, but thanks for running with it! Kids outgrow things so fast, and most of my kids’ things that are still in great shape end up back at the thrift shop on post. I will try to bring a few things, or arrange to have them brought down there.
