While getting high off of oil fumes at Jiffy Lube the other day I was flipping through the January 2010 issue of Better Homes and Gardens and came accross this. (Yes, I tore these two pages out but the guy at the counter didn’t seem to care).
It’s called a Swap Party I think it’s such a great idea. I can’t tell you how many Tupperware-style parties I’ve been to where I feel obligated to purchase something to benefit the hostess who is trying to earn so many dollars of free product (o.k. guilty. I’ve been a hostess too).
At a Swap Party the concept is everyone brings a few “nice” items they don’t use anymore to swap for other people’s things that they don’t use either. You spend no money and still leave with something(s) cool.
I’ll take that green lamp, the gorgeous cake stand and the Anthropologie bowls please.
