Nana Clothing Swap at Past Tense Studio

Mount Pleasant based Nana clothing boutique is hosting a clothing swap later this month. Nana is partnering with Past Tense yoga studio, which will act as the venue. Sounds like an awesome opportunity to part with some pieces you may be ready to move on from while being able to walk away with something new (to you). The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer is the beneficiary. This swap is happening during the evening of March 29th at Past Tense Yoga Studio - 3253 Mount Pleasant St NW. Cost: $20. (fyi - buy in advance, no tix at the door). From the organizers: 

"Start Spring with some winter wardrobe cleansing while raising money for Avon’s Walk for Breast Cancer!

Strip your closet of everything that doesn't fit or doesn't quite work--all those pieces that looked great in the store but somehow never made it into rotation--and bring them to 
Past Tense Yoga Studio on March 29th for a clothing swap hosted by Jackie Flanagan & Team Devon. This way you can purge the old stuff and stock up on new finds, all at the same time!

Have you been to one of 
Nana’s swaps before? This is the fourth swap. They are crazy fun but tickets sell out quickly.  This year is even more special because every dollar raised goes to Avon’s Walk for Breast Cancer’s Team Devon. We are so grateful because many people have donated their time & resources to make this event happen.

So, how does it work?
1. Buy a ticket to participateTickets are $20. Once you have a ticket, just bring a bag of stuff to swap (it can be a big bag), and you get entrance to the event. Space is limited and tickets will not be sold at the door.

2. Drop off your bag of items to swap from 4-5 pm.
Women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories are eligible to swap. All items must be in ready-to-wear shape: dry cleaned, ironed, no missing buttons, stains or tears, etc. The swap will be multi-seasonal; feel free to bring summer and winter attire. No sweatpants, swimwear, intimates, jewelry, menswear, or workout gear please. All items must be checked in by 5pm to ensure appropriate time to organize the main shopping area.

3. Go explore while we set up!
This is a great time to explore the quirky Mount Pleasant neighborhood by shopping around or enjoying one of the many local establishments. It is happy hour, afterall! We’ll have a list of local haunts ready for you at drop off.

4. The swapping begins at 6pm.
Entrance to the swap starts at 6pm sharp and stuff goes fast so don’t be late. You’re welcome to fill one bag (please bring your own.) to the brim. Please note there will be no dressing rooms or mirrors but in past swaps everyone is friendly and happy to help with opinions. The swap will end promptly at 8pm. All items left at the conclusion of the swap will be donated to Martha's Table.

This is our fourth annual swap, and every year we've had more swappers, more amazing clothes, and more fun! Buy your ticket early!
