Swap Day Success

I told you all about National Swap Day in my last post and wanted to share a few pictures of the fabulous event I volunteered at here in DC this past weekend.

From 9-11 in the morning women stopped by to drop of clothes they wanted to swap and and one of my jobs was to help sort through it all. This pile got about 10 times larger! But we got through it all, hanging up hundred and hundreds of garments on racks, and organizing shoes and accessories.

When we finished sorting and organizing we opened up the doors and a flood of women came through. Apparently there was a line around the block to get in! I had a fun time moving through the crowd, picking up empty hangers, and getting giddy when I heard girls get excited about a new find.

I came home with quite a loot- vintage fur coat, Betsy Johnson belt, a Longchamp purse, brand new boots and heels, and a dozen dresses/tops. Such fun!

It was such a fabulous event and I had a great time working with all the lovely organizers and volunteers! A fellow swapper and Lanyapi/Nana customer Lily, snapped this picture of us!


  1. I only used that Longchamp twice! It was just too small for all the stuff I tote around.. Glad it's found a new home!

  2. And that's my belt--Squeee! I think I got just as excited seeing who got my things as finding my own new stuff. Enjoy!

  3. I love this! I just saw a facebook album with one of my items in a new home too. So glad to give your things a new home! :-)
