SWAP EVENTS

When we swap offline, it's always with a unique Swap Society twist. We use our points system at clothing swap events too, so you get equal value for what you bring in. Plus, any leftover points can be used on our site later.

#SWAPBEFOREYOUSHOP

Swap Society founder Nicole Robertson will be speaking at the Sustainable Fashion Foruma one-day conference presented by FASHIONDEX and LA TEXTILE that is focused on sharing digital and tech-based solutions so fashion designers, manufacturers, factories, and retailers can become leaders in sustainability, transparency, efficiency, supply chain optimization, waste reduction, speed-to-market, data utilization, marketing, ecommerce, and profitability.

Thursday, March 7, 2019 • 9:00am-5:00pm
California Market Center, Fashion Theatre
110 East 9th Street
Los Angeles, CA 90079

Nicole will be speaking from 4:30pm-5:15pm on a panel about Sustainability and Circular Economy Solutions


HOW OUR SWAP EVENTS WORK
Bring 5* items to swap and get equal value for your clothes! We will carefully inspect your items, and our proprietary algorithm will assign a point value to each accepted item. You can “spend” your points on new-to-you items at the swap. Points are how we keep things fair and make sure that you get equal value for what you bring in. Points are based on a few key metrics including desirability, seasonality, condition, inventory and retail value. If you have any leftover points, you can use your points later on swapsociety.co.


WHAT WE ACCEPT**

Women's clothes, handbags, shoes and fashion jewelry (a.k.a. costume jewelryno fine jewelry.)

WHAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT
For health and safety reasons we do not accept Women's swimwear, panties or hosiery.​​​​​​

 

*If you want to swap more than 5 items, you are welcome to drop them off to Swap Society at the event for use on swapsociety.co later.
**Our events run a little differently than our regular online service. You can swap shoes and handbags at our events. There's no per-item fee, and you can spend your points freely without any point range limits. Please note that items brought to our swap events are not returnable.
