Host a Clothing Swap Party

Apr 1, 2008
If you have a closet full of clothes that you no longer wear, there is a good chance that your friends do as well. A great way to get rid of some of your clothes and get some new items in your closet is to host a clothing swap party. A clothing swap party is where you invite a group of people to come to your home, bringing a selected amount of used clothing items to swap.

To start, choose a date and a time to host your party. The best dates for these kinds of events will be on the weekend and in the afternoon. Try to choose a date that is not near a holiday so that you are not competing with other vacation or travel plans and so that you get a good turn out. You will want to have a sizable group so that the event goes over smoothly; between 8-20 people in attendance. To get this amount of people in attendance, you will need to invite approximately double the amount of people to the event.

Before you choose an invitation, you should give some thought to the format. How many clothing items do you want each person to bring and exchange? Are you inviting people that are similar clothing styles? What types of clothing do you want people to bring- pants, shirts, skits or accessories? Once you have selected the format for the party and who you will be inviting, you can select the invitations. Send out the invitations approximately 2-3 weeks prior to the event.

It is important to follow up with people to ensure that they understand the concept, that they understand what to bring and that they are excited about the event. Each person will show up to the event with the used clothing items that they are ready to trade. To make sure that everyone has a great time, serve food and drinks and have some background music. Clear an area out in your home where people can display their clothing. If possible, have the clothing on hangers so that it is easy to view for all of the guests. Give everyone an amount of numbers, equal to the amount of clothing items that will be swapped.

When everyone is ready to start trading, draw numbers one by one. The number that is chosen is the first person that gets to swap a piece of clothing. They can choose anything in the room to trade for one of their items. This process continues until everyone has completed their swaps. When the group leaves, they will take with them the same number of used clothing items that they brought to the party.

For an extra feature, you may want to hold a clothing drive for the all of the used clothing that people do not want in their closets. Offer to take it in to the selected charity for them and help a great cause while you are having fun.
